How IJMB Works

IJMB is a one-year intensive program to be used to gain admission. Almost 90% of Nigerian universities accept 200L and to study any course.
With IJMB you do not need JAMB or write one unless if you want to use it to leverage other D.E students.
Leverage means you register for IJMB the same year you register for JAMB. If JAMB fails you, you fall back to IJMB, if JAMB pass you can decide to leave your IJMB studies and proceed to accept your JAMB admission.

Some other things to consider as a person who is interested in the IJMB programme
  1. You can decide to register for JAMB while you are also registering for IJMB or doing the programme
  2. You buy D.E form the same year you are writing your examination, with the current JAMB calendar, you do not wait till you write your IJMB exam before you buy the D.E but buying it anytime is out the same year you are writing the examination.

    For example, if I am writing the final IJMB examination in 2021 February, and the JAMB D.E form is out by January 2021, I won’t need to wait till after the exam to write it, it might be too late then which might costly.

  3. JAMB has frowned with practices of applying with D.E and at the same time registering for JAMB. So while is not advisable, if you must do, apply using a different email, different course and different institution.

Does IJMB Requires NIN

Yes, from the IJMB 2022 registration, IJMB now requires NIN, at the point where you will register for the IJMB exam (6 months into the program, your National Identity Number card must be ready.

But while registering currently, you do not need National Identity Number – NIN to register but when your centre is ready to submit your name. Then NIN will be required.

To apply for IJMB, inform your parents and explain to them what IJMB is all about if they give their blessings and you have your IJMB registration fee,  then start your IJMB registration.

Do Not start your IJMB if don’t have the registration fee and have informed your parents as your data is automatically deleted within 24 hours if you do not complete the registration and pay for your registration fee.
