About IJMB

Interim Joint Matriculation Board IJMB was established in the year 1970, under statue 5 of the Ahmadu Bello University Law to organize a A ‘level examination called Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination(IJMBE) for candidates who are in need of admission into the University (Nigerian and Abroad) for an Undergraduate course. The programme qualifies a candidate for 200 Level admission into most Nigerian Universities. Click Here for list of Universities accepting I.J.M.B.

Interim Joint MAtriculation Board Examination IJMBE is an advanced level examination moderated by Ahmadu Bello University, partnering Tertiary Instituions and gvernment agencies. The Examination normally comes up between the months of Febuary and March every year. The examination is based on the approved IJMB syllabus which was structured by the syllabus of the 100 level curriculum of Nigerian Universities.


Thousands of applicants register for IJMB every year, and about 70% of them gain admission into 200L in their preferred university through IJMB. It was set up so as to cater for candidates who couldn’t gain admission into their preferred institution for one reason or the other or for those who need another alternative to University admission as the programme only requires your O’ level Result (Awaiting Result Candidates Can Also Apply).
