This post is basically on the Nigerian universities that accept Ijmb programme for direct entry admission. There are many of them, but we will list those that we remember this moment, and keep updating the list as new developments arise.
I have been receiving a lot of questions. And these questions are about the list of nigerian universities that accepts IJMB as a requirement for admission into 200lv without JAMB. Ijmb prospective candidates who are about to register for Ijmb programme have many fears. And one of the fears is if there are good Nigerian universities that accept Ijmb programme. So to settle their fear, we have compiled a list of Nigerian universities that accept Ijmb programme.
And to be accurate, I took my time making inquiries, both online and off- line and finally came up with the list of some major universities. So make sure to check the list thoroughly. And for those who keep asking whether they will still need to sit for JAMB Examination after doing IJMB programme. The amswer is No. There is no need for writing JAMB, once you do IJMB. And this is because IJMB is enough to help you secure admission into the university.
IJMB results are virtually acceptable to major universities in Nigeria. But NOTE that not all the Nigerian universities that accept IJMB programme are listed below. There are more. And also, discussions are going with some top universities to add them to the list of Nigerian universities that accept Ijmb programme for direct entry admission. And also note that not all Nigerian universities that accept Ijmb. Some top universities do not accept Ijmb for admission.
The university of Ibadan, Obafemi Awolowo University, University of Lagos, do not accept Ijmb programme programme direct entry admission. If anybody tells you they do, be careful, it is fraud.
