The meaning of IJMB is Interim Joint Matriculation Board The IJMB rogramme is one of the best and leading a’level programme in Nigeria. It is a nine month programme that allows interested candidate to study any course in any university of their choice WITHOUT JAMB UTME.
The IJMB programme was established by the The Interim Common Services Agency (ICSA) in 1976 under statute 5 of the Ahmadu Bello University Law, to run the Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination (IJMBE) as an alternative ‘A’ level Examination to student or candidate who may wish to seek for under graduate admission into Ahmadu Bello University and other University.
IJMBE is certified by the Nigerian University Commission (NUC)  as an advanced level programme for Direct Entry (DE) admission into any university in Nigeria and this makes the IJMBE acceptable in both Federal, State and Private universities in Nigeria. IJMB remains the best option and alternative for University admission seekers due to the few numbers of candidates who apply for direct entry (200 level admission) admission in Nigeria unlike the regular 1.5million Jamb UTME(100level) applicants. It is economical and time saving.
You can apply for IJMB and also Jamb UTME at the same time. IJMB result does not expire and can be used for admission application into different university.
The program was designed to prepare  post-secondary school candidates  academically, mentally and socially for  University education. The IJMB examination is based on an approved IJMB syllabus which was produced by harmonizing the contents of the syllabus of the former higher school certificate, London GCE, Cambridge A-level examination and the 100 level curriculum of Nigerian University
