NYSC BATCH C 2018: Everything You Need To Know + Registration

NYSC BATCH C 2018: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW + REGISTRATION

The NYSC (National Youth Service Corps) scheme is a program yearly for every Nigerian graduate which gives a platform to serve their country for a full year. It was started in the year 1973 and the first Director General appointed was Ahmadu Ali, who received his appointed in the year 1973 and was in power for two years (till 1975). There are many reasons why NYSC is necessary for every Nigerian and would be listed at the later part of the article.

Before I go into the history of how NYSC started, the requirements and the reason why this very important program should not be neglected by most Nigerians, let us look into the upcoming batch C registration process and the schedule for each of the activities coming up this year.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL POTENTIAL CORP MEMBERS FOR THE NYSC BATCH C

There are so many information that you need to know before you start your registration for this year’s batch C. Before I begin, there was a rumor in the recent past that the Federal Government of Nigeria wants to increase the allowances of all corp members from N19,800 to N49,800. That has not been confirmed yet, so it is better to disregard such information until you get the alert of N49,800 in your account , so you would not end up disappointed and your expectations would be cut short. So for now, it is better you still have the N19,800 in mind. Since that is clarified, let us go a bit further.
There are several criteria that must be put in place before one is approved to serve for the NYSC Batch C which would be listed below:

SENATE LIST

The school where every prospective corp members (PCM) finished from must send the names of their students who are qualified to serve to NYSC and to JAMB, after which the names would be uploaded to the NYSC portals, where all prospective members can check their names. If the name of any graduate is not uploaded, such a person should contact his or her school immediately for clarification, else such a person would not be permitted to serve. On the portal, you would be asked to provide the following information
The matriculation number of the candidate.

  • Candidate’s surname.
  • Also a place for date, month and year of birth, some are having issues with putting the year of birth. The solution for that is that, you either use a computer system to check it, or you use the opera browser, then you would be able to input the year of birth.
  • For batch C, 2018, the uploading of the names is still ongoing till September 30th, once it is that date and your name is not found on the list, contact your school immediately.

CREATING A JAMB ACCOUNT

Those prospective members that have not created a Jamb account yet should go to a designated JAMB centre to create one. That would aid such candidate in the printing of his or her JAMB admission letter, and other important document that would be needed in camp.

INFORMATION FOR ALL THOSE WHO STUDIED ABROAD

For all those who did not school in Nigeria, the first step to take is to check if his or her university is accredited and to do that, such candidate should move straight to the office of the federal ministry of Education in Nigeria for confirmation, once that is fully clarified, such PCM is to have all the following documents as it would be required.

  • Their leaving school certificate having not less than five (5) credits in just two (2) sitting or external WAEC certificate otherwise known as GCE also with nothing less than five (5) credits and other approved exam certificates such as NECO, NABTEB, High school Diploma (for PCM that did their high school abroad).
  • Transcript from the University, Polytechnic that such candidate finished from.
  • International passport
  • Those who studied in non English speaking countries are to ensure they translate their documents to English before uploading to avoid mistakes and confusion while processing..

DATES FOR THE PROGRAM FOR NYSC BATCH C PCM

*NOTE THAT PCM REFERS TO PROSPECTIVE CORP MEMBERS

  • - The uploading of the senate list, which started on the 3rd of September and would end on the 30th of September.
  • - Revalidation lists for students whose complains have being resolved takes place from the 2nd to the 5th of October.
  • - Online registration of PCM starts on the 6th of October and ends on the 15th, so all PCMs are to take advantage of this short period so as not to fall under stream to, or the next Batch which is after election next year (2019). Also all complains about the registration are entertained during this period. The help lines for NYSC office is not farfetched, it is right there on their website.
  • - Processing of data takes place from the 16th to the 18th of October.
  • - PCM starts printing their NYSC call up letters from 19th to the 22nd of October.
  • - Camp starts on the 23rd of October for stream 1 and on the 20th of November for stream 2. Camping for Corp members lasts for three (3) weeks, which is 21 days.

Note that in camp, you would be engaged a lot so as to prepare you for what you are going to face outside. So prepare your mind for whatever is coming. At the same time, you should not be afraid because it is also fun.
