It has been officially confirmed that 2020 Batch B is the batch that will enter orientation camp on 10th November. All the registered Batch ‘A’ Stream 2 prospective corps are now automatically the Batch B.
So, 2020 Batch ‘A’ Stream1 is now 2020 Batch A (without Stream). They will NOT return to camp but shall continue their service from their Place of Primary Assignment (PPA).
However, another question bothering Prospective Corps Members is “when will 2020 Batch C enter orientation camp?”
When will 2020 Batch C enter Orientation Camp?
The question should rather be, will there be 2020 Batch C?
According to the NYSC official Facebook Page, Batch C will enter orientation camp next year (2021), but did not specify if that is 2020 Batch C or 2021 Batch C.
However, it is practically impossible to have 2020 Batch C. There is likely not be 2020 Batch C. The next batch after 2020 Batch B will be called 2021 Batch A. See how NYSC camp will be from 10 November.
Let’s do this simple calculation:
There are no fewer than 90,000 registered Batch ‘A’ Stream 2 prospective corps members (Now Batch B).
NYSC is to call about 25,000 out of 90,000 to the orientation camp; 600-700 corps members per camp.
The first group of Batch B which is about 25000 in number will enter camp on 10th November, and will round up on 1st December 2020.
If all things being equal, the second group (another 25,000) will enter Camp around 3rd December, and will finish around 24th December 2020. Making the total number of 50,000 Corps members that have gone to camp.
The remaining 40,000 out 90,000 Batch B, will observe their orientation camp in January 2021.
So, around February/March 2021, there will be another new Batch which will either be called 2020 Batch C or 2021 Batch A.
So, it is more likely that NYSC will call them 2021 Batch A. See how NYSC calculate age limit for mobilisation.
After this 2020 Batch B, the next batch is next year, which we believe will be called 2021 Batch A. So, we don’t believe there is anything like 2020 Batch C.
