This research focuses on the assessment and evaluation of students’ academic performance in Accounting courses and ICT related courses among students of Accountancy and OTM departments. The selection of these students’ groups is necessitated by the fact that, both of them are equally empowered constitutionally to act as company secretary. The research was based on primary data generated with the aid of administered questionnaire to five (5) sampled Polytechnics. The sampled was chosen based on the Polytechnics that offer both accounting and OTM courses at a time. The research make used of panel data regression analysis, pair wise correlation and Kruskal-Wallis test using STATA 14.0 to establish whether there is any relationship between the study variables in respect of students academic performance. Based on the results from the analysis, it was found out that, the variables have positive and significant relationship with Accountancy students’ academic performance in both Accounting and Allied ICT courses from all the sampled Polytechnics, as compared with OTM students, with Federal Polytechnic Mubi reported the most significant responses. It was therefore recommended among other issues that, the National Board for Technical Education should issue a policy guideline regarding the introduction of basic OTM subjects in Nigerian grammar schools.
