The Interim Joints Matriculation Board, also known as IJMB, is one of the best alternatives to gaining admission using JAMB in Nigeria.
The statement of IJMB exam result which contains information about the candidate’s name, registration number, center, subjects, and grades is an important requirement when it comes to gaining admission via direct entry.
Candidates who are interested in checking their IJMB results should follow the guidelines in this article.
How to check your IJMB result
Checking IJMB results will be as easy as ABC if you follow the steps outlined below:
- Go to the institution or study center where you completed the IJMB program.
- Pay for the result checking token which costs at least 3,000 naira.
- Collect your IJMB result and make photocopies for reference purposes.
- Plan how you are going to use it to gain admission.
Please make sure you are not given a fake result and it should be stamped & signed by the Principal Coordinator.
If you have already enrolled for direct entry, you can scan the result and upload it to the JAMB portal.
Here’s what the IJMB result looks like:
Can you check your IJMB result online?
Unfortunately, there is no way to check your IJMB result online. If due to one reason or another you can’t visit your center, you can contact them to send you a scanned copy of the result.
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get the original copy. After spending more than 9 months on the program, I don’t think there’s any valid reason why you shouldn’t collect your result.
How long does it take for IJMB result to be released?
It takes about 2 weeks to a month for IJMB result to be released. This is due to the time the board takes to mark the exam scripts, grade the scores and process the results.
It can even take longer depending on your IJMB center and other factors. For example, if you have not completed payments for the program, you won’t get your result unless you balance the payments.
IJMB Grading system 2022
The grading system used for IJMB results is similar to that used by JUPEB. The maximum points you can score in each subject is 5.
|70 – 100||A||5|
|60 – 69||B||4|
|50 – 59||C||3|
|45 – 49||D||2|
|40 – 44||E||1|
|39 or lower||F||0|
Note that not having any ‘F’ gives you an additional point. Make sure you know the IJMB points requirement for the institution you intend to choose in direct entry.
