The programme was envisioned as stop-gap or bridge after secondary school education, to prepare candidates academically, mentally and socially for the challenges of university education.
he IJMBE is a qualifying examination concluded annually, mainly for Advanced Level (A/L) subjects for admission into 200 level in Nigerian and foreign Universities. In addition, two Ordinary Level (O/L) subjects (English and Mathematics) are also offered as equivalent to WAS and or NEO O-Level, for candidates who may be deficient in the subjects. Candidates are presented for the IJMB examination through affiliated institutions which are saddled with the responsibility of providing facilities for training candidates for the examination under the control of the IJMBE Governing Board.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has, from 1978 been the moderating agency to the IJMB Examination.
