Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is IJMB
A. IJMB means Interim Joint Matriculation Board. Is a federal government program that is being supervised by Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. Before, it's only program used by students to gain admission into Nigerian universities, before federal government comes up with JAMB. But now, we can say IJMB is a program to set up to put an ease to students admission difficulties, as it's easier to gain admission with it, than JAMB.

2.You need to come with your 'student mattress' food items and other necessary personal belongings
Q. How Easy To Pass An IJMB Exam?
A. Personally, the percent rate of people passing IJMB are much higher than any other exams despite being seen as very difficult. Every year at least 70% of people writing the examination do have up to 8 to 10 points while at least 88% do have the minimum point to gain admission into any Nigerian universities which is 5 points. Just like I have always tell students, be sure of what you are coming down for, don't come in a way that when we start asking you questions you are not even sure of what you want for yourselves.

A.Well, if it's just the two or one of the two you don't have in your Ordinary certificate, you have the opportunity of writing them during your IJMB exam without necessarily writing another WAEC, NECO, GCE or NABTEB. So I think is a plus one for you
Can I Write JAMB while Doing IJMB?
Yes, in fact we do advise our students to do so, at least it help them to kill two birds with a stone.
Does It Mean If I Don't Get Admission With IJMB After Running The Program Is A Waste?
A. No, IJMB is an impact you will forever felt in all through your lifetime. Because when you go through it, most things you will be thought in your year one and two, will mostly be like a revision to you. If later you don't get admission with it, is never being a waste. But, you can have my words that the possibility of you being admitted through IJMB in Nigeria institutions is very much higher than using JAMB. Trust my words for that, I have being in this IJMB for few years now. I have reached a point where someone will just come up and say I don't know what I'm saying.
What Is The Possibility Of Gaining Admission With IJMB?
A. Very few students know about IJMB, I think every year ABU Zaria registered less than 20,000 IJMB students comparing to JAMB that over 1.5 million students sat down for it annually. Comparing to universities, over 80 percent of federal universities accept IJMB including states while we all know that all universities accept JAMB but comparing the them, I'm sure you can figure out the possibility.
Q. Does IJMB Have Official Website?
A. Till now, IJMB doesn't have official website all their university programs are being listed on the ABU website Any website claiming that they are official IJMB website are FRAUDSTERS, and you need to run away from them as fast as possible. And never pay any money/ school fees to personal bank account, that is the easiest way to run from them.
