Why You Need To Write IJMB Before You Even Think Of JAMB

IJMB Before Jamb

This is the modern technique by which those who have the means and resources gain admission into Nigerian tertiary institutions with little or no stress at all Yes, people now write IJMB before even thinking of JAMB. The reasons are not far-fetched, this is the surest means today to gain admission without wasting any year at home, or being frustrated by JAMB. According to our research, average Nigerian secondary leavers write JAMB
three times before gaining admission to the university of their choice.
before gaining admission to the university of their choice.

Today, we are not here to prove facts, we are here to tell you reasons secondary school leavers need to consider the Interim Joint Matriculation Board before writing the JAMB at all if needs be. When you see a student whom you finished with at the same secondary school, the same year now at 200 level and you know that JAMB does not accept awaiting result. You, as a distant friend begins to wonder how come?
Wonder no more, the reason why he/she is now in 200 level is because that your so friend has gone to enroll in an A’level programme like IJMB, and used the result to apply for his/her university of choice that accepts IJMB. And we are here to explain today, what the programme is all about, and how you can use the same result to gain admission, and by next year November, you too must have been admitted in 200 level.

Why You Need To Write IJMB Before Even Before Creating JAMB Profile

Most O’level leavers do not even know any program being called A’ level. A level program means an Advanced programme, and the most common A’ level programs in Nigeria as of today are IJMB, Cambridge A Level, JUPEB and NABTEB A Level. These programmes when undertaken by a student, such student has the opportunity to combine the result with Direct Entry form that is obtainable at JAMB office and banks and used it to gain admission into any of the candidate  choices of university, and now he/she gains admission into 200 level and they can study any course being Medicine, Law, Accounting etc.
Why we are here today is because of IJMB, IJMB is a 9-month programme, the programmes is moderated and supervised by Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. The exam is usually February every year, and the result is released between late April or early May. Again, lectures usually commence between March and April every year.

Why You Need To Write IJMB First Before JAMB

Now that the JAMB does not accept awaiting result, most O’ level leavers who do not know the existence of any A-level programmes such as IJMB or any of the A’ Levels, ending up wasting the opportunity they have to apply for IJMB in order to gain admission with IJMB result the following year into 200 level, and by this means they waste no time at home at all. So the number reason is that you do not have waste any time at home

Secondly, the chances of students to gain admission into 200 level is higher than JAMB we have over 1.5 Million competing for few spaces every year but with IJMB, only a few people use Direct Entry method to gain admission. It is far less competitive.

Furthermore, when you wait for the following year to write JAMB, if you refuse to go for IJMB program, the chances of candidates have to gain admission with JAMB is less than 50%. But when you write IJMB first (immediately you finished secondary school) is more than 80%. At least, 80% of people who write IJMB every year do use it to gain admission.
When you are lucky to know about IJMB and apply for the program, your result has 90% to be better than those who use JAMB, because your CGPA start counting from 200 level unlike those who their CGPA starts counting from 100 level. Greater chances of graduating with 2.1 (Second class upper)

Again, applying with IJMB result does not automatically stop you from applying with JAMB also. So when yo are done with your WAEC, NECO, GCE, NABTEB examinations and you decided to go for IJMB, when you are done and you come out with a good point from IJMB and decided to buy your Direct Entry form from bank/JAMB office. It does not stop you from buying JAMB form also. So why you are using IJMB result in one hand, you are using JAMB form in another. So one more opportunity. But does it necessary? Your decide

Another point we must mention here before telling you steps to register for IJMB is that with your Direct Entry form, you can apply to as many universities as you want. Up to 6 universities (If you buy 3 Direct Entry forms), But do you need that? Your decides
When you are in 200 level, there is no different between those who use IJMB and JAMB to gain admission. 
IJMB gives you first-hand experience of Campus life, hostel and different people from different states, region and religion.
Parents should start encouraging their wards to go for IJMB first, before thinking of writing JAMB if at all he/she must write one.
