Students who are seeking admission into the university often ask which is better between JUPEB or IJMB. This question usually crosses their minds due to the similarity of the programme.
However, regardless of the fact that this programmes are the similar, there are a few differences and peculiarities that make each programme unique.
This post intends to shade light on the differences that are unique to each of these programme. However, before we begin to give you details of these differences, we will give a little detail about both programmes. With that, we believe you will be able to know which is better between JUPEB and IJMB, and make the better decision.
How IJMB works
This part of the article addresses the question “ 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.
The subject combination must be in line with their preferred course of study, regardless of the course. However, in our centre, we help prospective students 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 gives students adequate preparation for the IJMB exam which will facilitate their admission into 200level in their respective preferred institutions.
IJMB PRORAMME DURATION
IJMB Nigeria programme runs within nine (9) months which is similar to a session of two semesters in a tertiary academic institution. This is similar 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 Programme?
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 and it offers all courses including Medicine, Law, 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.
Consequently, 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.
HOW TO OBTAIN YOUR IJMB FORM AND OTHER REGISTRATION PROCEDURES.

School fee for the programme is in between N180,000 and N250,000 in all our IJMB study centres. The state of the IJMB centers of candidates is 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
IJMB FEES PAYMENT PROCEDURES:
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.
