IJMB means Interim Joint Matriculation Board is an
Advanced Level (A’level) 9-month programme being supervised, run
and moderated by Ahmadu Bello University,Zaria and it was setup to
serve as an alternative method of gaining admission into tertiary
Institution in Nigeria into 200 level via Direct Entry (D.E) form and
about 75% of Nigerian universities recognize the IJMB result.
Just like the University of Lagos supervises JUPEB programme,
and university of Cambridge supervises Cambridge A Level in
Nigeria , so also ABU, Zaria is to IJMB.
IJMB which allow successful students to get admissions into 200
level of almost Nigerian universities and candidates can actually
study any course of their choice with this interesting programme
including but not limited to Medicine, Law, Accounting, Business
Administration, Mass comm. Linguistics ETC. You can see the list
of Nigerian universities that accept IJMB into 200 level. Normally,
IJMB is supposed to be 10 months program, but since students
are not going to resume at the same time, hence we have students
who only ended up spending between 7 months and 5 months
throughout the IJMB programme.
Since time has nothing to do with your result but your
seriousness, and IJMB is not for the brilliants students but for the
determined heart who is ready to sacrifice time and energy with
his/her books, it is going to be a success all the way. While we do
not want to make a jest of the exam, we must say that the exam is
not that difficult as being portrayed by many people, is just that
the interested candidates need to sit tight to pass the IJMB exam.
We must tell you this, we have seen a student who started in
February while the exam was going to be May in 2009, and he got
14 points out of the 16 points obtainable in total, a science
student for that matter.
Another important factor is the issue of the lecturers, anywhere we
posts students to, that means IJMBway Alevel Registration have
tested their method of teaching and that have attained a very high
degree in their method of teaching. We do make sure that IJMB
centres use lecturers that are IJMB inclined, how do you know
those lecturers? Well, that’s why you have to let the right person
lead you, because without the right lecturers for the right subject,
definitely, IJMB students will have problem if not problems
IJMB allows you to choose three courses/subjects that are
related to what you want to study at the university of your choice.
The highest point for each course is five(5) points, which is
denoted by A. That is, all the three courses will have fifteen (15)
points in total, with an addition of one (1) if in the three courses/
subjects you don’t have F(fail) which stands for 0 points. Making
a total of sixteen points (16) altogether.
A = 5 courses/subjects
B = 4 points
C = 3 points
D = 2 points
E = 1 points
F = 0 points
For you to be considered as being passed in IJMB exam you must
score a minimum of 5 points in total i,e EDE stands for (1+2+1)
which is five (5) points.
It is worthy to notes, that before JAMB/UTME comes to existence,
IJMB was only the tool used to gain admission then, ask these
many professors they will confirm it to you. The same problem
facing other sectors in Nigeria have a huge effect on Nigeria
education sector, hence, you find few people that only know little
about IJMB these days.
1. The IJMB result does not expire, unlike your JAMB that is only
for a year.
2. You can use it over and over again
3. You can still be doing it and apply for JAMB if you want to kill
two birds with a stone
4. You will have higher PGD in your university as is going to be
divided by 3years, not four years not four years like others who
5. You have more advantages of being admitted unlike those used
JAMB since IJMB students are very fewer in ratio.
6. I have come across with many educated parents that told me, if
my children doesn’t use IJMB result to gain admission into
university, doesn’t really bother me, all I want from them is to
have the first-hand experience with A’level program before
gaining admission fully to university – yes, this is what is seen in
other advanced climes, you just have to go through a year with
Advanced program before gaining admission fully to university of
