University Admission gets tougher by the year with a lot of students competing for a place in their preferred Nigerian University.

This Post is to introduce you to an alternative that will help you gain admission into the university of your choice without Jamb.

Introduction to IJMB

IJMB simply means Interim Joint Matriculation Board. It is the body that moderates the popular IJMBE (Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination). Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination is a Federal Government educational program that was established, controlled, and run by Amadu Bello University, Zaria (ABU). IJMBE is an advanced level educational examination that qualifies its candidate for admission into 200 Level; any Nigeria and Foreign Universities through Direct Entry. Most candidates who failed either in JAMB or POST-UTME in the past always go through this program, and the majority of them gain admission into 200 level and meet their colleagues at 200 level. The good news is that a lot of people are entering into the university via IJMB program directly into 200 level because of its relevance. IJMB will allow you to choose three courses/subjects that are related to what you want to study at the university of your choice. The program lasts for nine (9) months divided into two semesters. During this period, students are exposed to intensive lectures from Mondays to Friday every week and a weekly Continuous Assessment.

The Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB) was established in 1976 by the Interim Common Services Agency of the old Northern Regional Government of Nigeria. IJMB at inception had two basic functions: to provide social services and educational opportunities to people of the Northern region of the country. Now it has grown to encompass the whole country, providing the best pathway to university education in the country.

Since inception, IJMB has been moderated and coordinated by one of Nigeria’s premier tertiary universities; the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. The program also has coordinating bodies in various tertiary institutions around the country.

To make it accessible to as many Nigerians as possible, there are accredited IJMB centres across the country of which Student Village Academy Ilorin is one of the foremost.
