About IJMB

Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination (IJMB) is an advanced level programme moderated by ABU and established in 1970 under statute 5 of the Ahmadu Bello University Law, to run the Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination (IJMB) as an alternative to ‘A’ Level Examination, for candidates who may wish to seek for undergraduate admission into Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and other universities. The programme was envisaged as a stop-gap or bridge after secondary school education, to prepare candidates academically, mentally and socially for the challenges of university education.

A Laboratory at Hills College

The IJMB examination is based on an approved IJMB syllabus which was produced by harmonizing the contents of the syllabus of the formal Higher School Certificate, London GCE, Cambridge A- level examination and the 100 level curriculum of Nigerian education.

IJMB is a qualifying examination conducted annually, mainly for Advanced Level ( A/L) subjects for admission into 200 level (Direct Entry) into Nigerian and foreign universities. In addition, two Ordinary Level (O/L) subjects ( English and Mathematics) are also offered as equivalent to WASC or NECO O level, for candidates who may be deficient in them.

NO JAMB NOR PUTME is required. Awaiting result is accepted for registration. Certificate obtainable does not expire and guaranteed 200L admission instead of the traditional 100L admission given by JAMB. ALL a student requires to enroll for IJMBE is O level result i.e WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, GCE and we even accept Awaiting Result.
