About Us


The Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination (IJMBE) is a qualifying examination into Nigerian and Foreign Universities. The IJMB examination is primarily for Advanced Level subjects for Direct Entry into 200 level in the Universities. The syllabus for the IJMB Examination is compiled in line with international standard educational requirements and admission requirements of various Universities, Nigeria and overseas. The IJMB syllabus is designed to be covered in only one (1) academic session over a period of two (2) semesters. The content of the IJMB syllabus is structured in such a way to ensure that all the topics in the IJMB subjects are covered within the two semesters. A list of relevant IJMB reading texts is provided at the end of each IJMB subject syllabus to guide the institutions, lecturers and students in the course of running the IJMB programme. For effective coverage of the IJMB syllabus, a minimum of 8-10 lecture hours per week is recommended, IJMB practical and field works included. The IJMB syllabus may be revised every eight (8) years.


Candidates for the IJMB Advanced Level Examination should refer to the current JAMB brochure for appropriate IJMB subject combinations leading to the proposed course of study in the University. Each IJMB candidate shall enroll and sit for only three (3) subjects for the final IJMB examination.
