In this article, we are going to teach you how to change your date of birth during NYSC Mobilization.
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has provided the opportunity for every Prospective Corps Member (PCM) to adjust or correct mistake in their Date of Birth. Therefore, PCM who are having any issue with their date of birth can now be able to change, correct or adjust it with just some few clicks. Below is how to change your date of birth during NYSC mobilization
How to Correct NYSC Date of Birth Issues
If you wish to change your date of birth during or after the NYSC registration, just follow the steps below:
- Purchase the WAEC Results Verification PIN,
- Go to the NYSC portal at portal.nysc.org.ng
- Login to your NYSC dashboard with your e-mail and Password;
- Clicking on “Resume Registration” link
- Click on “Change date of birth” button. Once you click on “Change date of birth”, a page with a form will pop-up.
- Fill the form and submit your entries.
Note: The reason NYSC ask for WAEC results verification PIN is for them to be able to confirm your age with your WAEC age. So, what will happen is that NYSC will import the age on your WAEC profile to your NYSC profile.
Exemption due of Age mistakes
If you are exempted because a mistake was made on your date of birth, you can use the methods described above to correct it by importing your WAEC Date of Birth to your NYSC profile.
But if you are really above 30 yrs, and NYSC exempted you as due to your age, we sorry to say that the method described above may not help you since the age you used in WAEC is also likely to exceed 30 yrs, so importing your WAEC age would still give you exemption.
What then is the solution for those exempted due to age, and their WAEC age still above 30
There is no explicit solution for that unless your Institution is willing to help you; that is illegal though! But we are going to show you for Educational purpose!
Warning: the information we are about to disclose is only for Educational Purposes.
Since, since NYSC calculate age from the information used in JAMB registration, you can go ahead to do JAMB Regularization, normally you may not need it, but now you will need it since you are looking for means to serve your fatherland.
Go to JAMB office the Regularization, tell them your purpose is only to reduce your age.
Once the Regularization is completed and you your data validated, go back to your school and inform them of the change. You school will have re-upload your data on the NYSC portal. Once it is done, you are good to go.
