ICSA itself was established by the government of the old Northern Region of Nigeria to provide educational and social services to the people of the region. The first Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination (IJMBE) was held in 1977 for all students who had undergone the IJMBE post secondary education program in the existing schools of Basic/ Preliminary studies which had replaced the HSCE.

Do You Know?

Approximately 1.6 million candidates write Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted by Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) annually, it has been estimated that 65% of those who write the examination fails and 60% of the 35% who passes end up failing post UTME again. In other to reduce this menace, IJMB was initiated to offer a solution.

This also indicates the annual population of prospective 100 Level students in Nigerian Universities. The competition is high owing to the limited vacancies available in these institutions. On the other hand, DIRECT ENTRY mode is less competitive. The entry requirements for this mode include A/Level Exam, NCE, ND, HND and Bachelor Degrees. A/Level Examination offers the best of both sides: duration and admission; and IJMB/JUPEB programme has a leading edge. Hundreds of thousands of students have gone through the programme since its inception, and had completed their degree programmes in their chosen universities, both home and abroad.

IJMB and JUPEB is valid for life (it has no expiry date) compared to JAMB(UTME) that expires immediately after the admission and matriculation


IJMB Examinations are highly respected and recognized by various higher institutions both in Nigeria and abroad. The certificates/results are acceptable in increasing number of institutions in the country. The Federal Government, through its various educational agencies, recognize IJMB as an examining body for both Ordinary and Advanced Level Examinations. The syllabus is approved by the National Education Research and Development Council (NERDC) and the IJMB examination result are listed among the acceptable modes of entry in the JAMB brochure.

For many decades, Nigerian higher institutions have been admitting students with IJMB results into their undergraduate programmes. This page is intended to list the institutions (specifically, the universities) that presently accepts the IJMB A/Level certificate. This list is not exhaustive, and we hope to keep it updates.

I registered for IJMB when all hopes of getting admitted into a federal university was dashed. At the beginning the road was rough, but thanks to my lecturers I caught up in no time, the lectures were intense but it paid off, I finished with great points. Till date I still check my notes, the foundation layed while I was at Climax Advanced Studies helps me top my class.

At first I was kinda discouraged but now it has really helped me. I will always encourage and recommend students seeking admission to apply for the Climax Advance Studies IJMB programme. Its awesome!.
