About IJMB

This is all the information you need to know about the IJMB programme.

IJMB or IJMBE for full simply means the Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination. The Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination is a Federal Government of Nigeria certified examination body charged with the responsibility of conducting and processing direct entry admissions or A ‘level admissions programme.


The IJMB programme is approved by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB), as one of the formidable A ‘level program in the country. In Nigeria, the chief coordinator/moderator of the programme is the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. However, IJMB centres are available in different states of the federation for enrollment.

The programme was established in the 1970s with the sole purpose of solving and managing issues that come along with the influx of admission applications every year, into Nigerian tertiary institutions. Upon its establishment, IJMB has facilitated the admission of thousands of students, substituting the need to write JAMB.

Students who ace the IJMB programme are eligible for admission into 200level in their university of choice, taking away the waste of time and resource of waiting for a whole year to rewrite JAMB every year.

For students who are seriously seeking admission, the IJMB presents you with an unmatched opportunity as you can apply with an awaiting 0’level result, so long the result will be available before the end of the IJMB programme.

To create an alternative platform for prospective students to seek admission into universities, IJMB Nigeria was established to create an A ‘levels admission seeking platform.

Private centres are licensed to facilitate the availability of IJMB study centres for the IJMB programme in several parts of the country. This is aimed at creating accessibility to the programme by prospective students. It creates an avenue for students to gain admission into several universities, polytechnics, or college of education of their choice, without waiting another year for JAMB.

It is an alternative to accommodate the increasing population of students who are seeking admission yearly.

Certification – Is IJMB Certified?

The Federal Ministry of Education representing the Federal Government of Nigeria in Education related issues certifies the IJMB programme through the NUC, while relevant educational institutions recognize the programme as one that creates A ‘levels status for prospective students, and they accept it.

Having explained and established the validity of the programme, the next sections of the post will explain the nature of the programme, how it works, and elaborate on questions that bother on eligibility, the application process, etc.

How IJMB Nigeria works.

This section of the article exhaustively addresses the question from students who ask,” how does IJMB work?” In line with the method of operation of nearly all advanced-level programmes, students taking the IJMB programme will choose any three (3) subjects to go along with English Language (which is a compulsory subject for participants), to make the number of subject four (4) in total.

Candidates’ subject combination must be in line with their preferred course of study, regardless of the course. However, for prospective students who do not know or understand the subject combination process in line with their preferred course of study, we will give you a properly informed guide for this and other aspects you might have doubts or questions on, during the registration process.

Upon completion of the registration, students will begin to attend lectures in the study centre of their chosen state, throughout the programme before the examination commences. The tutorial classes available in the various study centres are calculated towards giving students adequate preparation for the IJMB exam which will facilitate their admission into 200level in their respective preferred institutions.



IJMB Nigeria programme is designed to run within nine (9) months which is similar to a session of two semesters in a tertiary academic institution. This is akin to taking a 100level programme in an institution and the final exam is a bridge to crossing into 200level.

Eligibility – What are the eligibility criteria for IJMB Nigeria?

This section addresses the question of eligibility. The programme presents prospective students with the opportunity to gain admission into 200level in any institution without writing JAMB. It is open to all interested students from different walks of life and it offers all courses including Medicine, Law, Engineering, Mass Communication, etc. There is no limit to the courses prospective students can study with the programme.

Prospective students who are secondary school leavers get the opportunity to get into universities and other tertiary institutions using their 0’level results. Also, students who are yet to get their 0’level result (WAEC, GCE, NECO) can apply for IJMB using awaiting results. The most important piece of information is that every candidate must have their 0’level result before the end of the IJMB programme.

Upon completion of the IJMB programme and after passing the exam, students will then obtain the Direct Entry Form or DE Form from JAMB and fill the forms to transition into 200level.

School fee for the programme is in between N180,000 and N250,000 in all our IJMB study centres. The state or location of the IJMB centers preferred by candidates is largely a determinant of the eventual price students pay for the programme.

Also, accommodation of students also determines if students will pay a certain amount or less. For instance, IJMB 2020/2021 school fees, with accommodation is N250,000 in Lagos and N200,000 without accommodation.

However, in Ilorin, IJMB 2020/2021 fees is N180,000 without accommodation. Nevertheless, all these fees consist of the acceptance fee, tuition fee and text books


Immediately a student has successfully completed his/her IJMB 2020/2021 registration, they resume as soon as possible.

However, we allow for payment on instalment in order to make it easy for students and parents. This means that our students can pay in bits but not more than three times.


Registration for a new session usually starts around September as the ongoing session or currently running programme is coming to an end. The programme session usually begins around April while it usually ends around February after the IJMB exam which is usually scheduled for February as well.

Candidates can, however, join the current session till May. We usually make provisions for special classes for students who register at a later time. These classes are also called Fixed lectures in our system and they are designed to help students who resume at a later time get the hold of the IJMB syllabus.
