  3. If someone's age in his NECO database is above 30 but his age on jamb certificate is below 30, would NYSC go as far as verifying from NECO database?

    2. You graduated (02/18) at 29 and you are already 30 this February. Oga, you will go to service. Except you graduated this year February when you are already 30 that's when you are not eligible but if it was last year, forget am you are serving. If you like, postpone am til 2-3yrs time, you will serve

    What if I was born in 1980, and my WAEC date of birth, I use 1990, Jamb too, I keep using 1990, and based on that my graduation date was below 30 years, but I know myself that am above 30 years. Will I still serve?

    1. Inasmuch as you graduated before 30 years, so can still serve. NYSC doesn't go about asking whether or not someone is older or not. They only make use of the age you submitted while filling JAMB or WAEC or NECO

    1. Inasmuch as you have been previously mobilized, I heard you will have to be renobilized and I also think the registration will send soonest (if not expired sef). Go to NYSC official page, locate news and event and check it out

  15. Pls I my date of birth is 16/04/1988 what is my fate to serve next year 2019

    ReplyDelete
  16. It's your year of graduation that matters. If you graduated in 2017 you can go for service, if you graduated in 2018 I think you still can cos the law says you shouldn't be more than 30 when graduating (but the chances are slim), but if you graduated in 2019, it's already over 30

  17. My date of birth is April 1989 and I graduated at 29 in 2018. Since the service year has spilled to 2019 (I will be 30 by April 2019), can I still serve?
