BRIEF HISTORY OF JUPEB
JUEPB was established by a group of ten (10) Universities headed by the University of Lagos. The board was approved by the Federal Government of Nigeria in Dec 2013, but was formally setup in April, 2014. JUPEB is certified by the Nigerian university commission (NUC) as a standard examination that qualifies student to 200level admission through JAMB Direct Entry into Nigerian Universities and Foreign Universities.

Do You Know?
Approximately 1.6 million candidates write Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted by Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) annually, it has been estimated that 65% of those who write the examination fails and 60% of the 35% who passes end up failing post UTME again. In other to reduce this menace, IJMB was initiated to offer a solution.
This also indicates the annual population of prospective 100 Level students in Nigerian Universities. The competition is high owing to the limited vacancies available in these institutions. On the other hand, DIRECT ENTRY mode is less competitive. The entry requirements for this mode include A/Level Exam, NCE, ND, HND and Bachelor Degrees. A/Level Examination offers the best of both sides: duration and admission; and IJMB/JUPEB programme has a leading edge. Hundreds of thousands of students have gone through the programme since its inception, and had completed their degree programmes in their chosen universities, both home and abroad.
IJMB and JUPEB is valid for life (it has no expiry date) compared to JAMB(UTME) that expires immediately after the admission and matriculation
