universities in Nigeria : IJMB – secure direct admission

universities in Nigeria : IJMB – secure direct admission. IJMB – secure direct admission into 200 Level in various universities in Nigeria. The IJMB program in Nigeria has helped many students secure their ticket into the 200 Level in Various Universities without having to sit for the JAMB exam and at a considerably lower cost. The Institution was established to provide qualitative and reliable educational assessment, encouraging academic and moral excellence and promoting sustainable human resource development.

Hundreds of Thousands of students apply and sit for UTME yearly but only about 20% are successful in securing admission into Nigeria universities. Most of these candidates, who fail to secure admission, reapply in subsequent years thereby worsening the admission burden in Nigerian Universities. Even for those who come off successful with over 200 scores in UTME, some of them end up not being able to secure admission. The worst dilemma is that they cannot use the result in the following year, as the UTME result is only valid for one (1) year, as against the IJMB result which has no expiry date.

This is particularly why the IJMB Advanced Level programme is a better recommendation. Other Advanced level programmes, apart from IJMB include NAGCE, CAMBRIDGE, among others.

The IJMB Advanced Level programme runs for a period of two semesters, after which a successful IJMB student graduates into 200 levels in the University through direct entry. All courses are available for the IJMB programme.

Candidates seeking admission into the IJMB programme must possess a minimum of 5 Credits in relevant O level subjects from WAEC, NECO or NABTEB in not more than two sittings. Awaiting results can also apply for the IJMB programme.

Lectures on the IJMB programme are guided by the approved IJMB syllabus and the contents of the IJMB syllabus cover the University 100 level syllabus and above, which must be taught within a period of two semesters.

The entire IJMB examination process is moderated by the IJMB headquarters, ABU, Zaria together with JAMB-approved moderators at the approved IJMB affiliated institutions.

More about the Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB)

The Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination (IJMBE) is a qualifying examination into Nigerian and Foreign Universities. The IJMB examination is primarily for Advanced Level subjects for Direct Entry into 200 level in the Universities.

The syllabus for the IJMB Examination is compiled in line with international standard educational requirements and admission requirements of various Universities, Nigeria and overseas.

The IJMB syllabus is designed to be covered in only one (1) academic session over a period of two (2) semesters. The content of the IJMB syllabus is structured in such a way to ensure that all the topics in the IJMB subjects are covered within the two semesters. A list of relevant IJMB reading texts is provided at the end of each IJMB subject syllabus to guide the institutions, lecturers and students in the course of running the IJMB programme.

For effective coverage of the IJMB syllabus, a minimum of 8-10 lecture hours per week is recommended, IJMB practical and field works included. The IJMB syllabus may be revised every eight (8) years.


IJMB is a national educational programme approved by the Federal Government, coordinated nationwide by Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, with different affiliated Study Centres across the country. The IJMB programme provides a platform that enables successful IJMB candidates to secure direct admission into 200 Levels in Nigerian Universities and Abroad.


Annually, about 30,000 candidates are put in for the IJMB programme, out of which about 20,000 applicants come off successful at the end of the IJMB programme, and secure admission with the IJMB result into 200 levels in various Universities nationwide.


IJMBE is certified by the Nigeria University Commission (NUC) and Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has an A’level programme that qualifies candidates to secure direct admission into 200 Level in the Universities upon successful completion of the IJMB programme.


Candidates for the IJMB Advanced Level Examination should refer to the current JAMB brochure for appropriate IJMB subject combinations leading to the proposed course of study in the University. Each IJMB candidate shall enrol and sit for only three (3) subjects for the final IJMB examination.
