Nysc streams


Whenever the NYSC mobilization is around the corner, prospective corps members usually ask the following questions;

  • What is NYSC Batch Streams?
  • What is the difference between Stream 1 and 2?
  • How do I know if I am going with stream 1 or 2? 
  • How do I follow Stream1 or 2?
  • Is there a separate registration for Stream 1 and 2?

The questions above are some questions they ask us, but luckily to them, I will give answers to those questions on this page.

Now, let’s start from the first question.

What is the NYSC Batch streams?

NYSC Streams are divisions of NYSC Batches. As the number of graduates, keep on increasing there become a need to divide Batches into Streams.

The NYSC streams are subdivisions of NYSC Batches.

In the past, there was no NYSC Batch Streams.

Streams came into play because of a large number of Nigerian graduates that are being produced every year by tertiary institutions.

The NYSC orientation camps have no enough space to accommodate this large number of graduates at once. So, NYSC had to split the scheme into 3; Batch A, B, and C.

There is always a new registration for each of the three Batches every year.

But the rate by which tertiary institutions across Nigeria produce graduates made the NYSC management to split Batches into Streams.

For example; if NYSC calls for fresh registration for Batch B, about 120,000 or more graduates will register, meanwhile the NYSC Orientation camps can only accommodate 60,000.

So, since 120,000 registered, NYSC would divide it into two; 60,000 will go with Batch B Stream 1, and the remaining 60,000 will form Stream 2.

What the difference between NYSC Stream 1 and Stream 2?

There if no difference between Stream 1 and 2. Both are from same batch, and they register at the same period. Only that NYSC camp is not big enough to accommodate all of them at the same time.

How to know if you are going with NYSC streams 1 or 2?

After NYSC online registration, there is only one way to know which stream you belong; that’s “call-up letter”. When NYSC dispatches call-up letter, those who do not receive will know they are in Stream 2.

NYSC will send Call-up letters to those in Stream1 and ask those in Stream2 to wait. So if you don’t receive call-up letter when those in you are batch are receiving, it means you are in Stream2.

Can I go for NYSC stream 2 rather than stream 1?

The choice is made by NYSC, but there is a way to hack it.

If you want to go for service with Stream1, try to register early, in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd day that online registration start. Doing that will increase your chance to be selected for stream 1.

If you don’t register early, you may not be selected for stream 1, meaning that you will fall within Stream2.

However, make sure you register within the first 5 to 7 days that registration started, if not you may not get available state slot.

    I have strong reasons to believe stream 1or 2 is not determined by the time of registration but the time your institution uploads her senate list.

    • Humphery

      October 17, 2019 at 10:45 pm

      No, you only need medical report if you are sick and wish to let NYSC know. However medical certificate of fitness is compulsory in NYSC camp

    Humphrey I really commend your effort in helping Nigerian students.You will surely reap the reward.
    Pls I want to know if registration time determine which stream you will belong, i mean something like FIFO(First-in, First-out).

    • Humphery

      September 28, 2019 at 4:00 pm

      Registering on time plays a major role in determining stream. For example; someone who registered on the first day of registration is more likely to fall within Stream1 than someone who registered a week after.

      • Ozioma

        October 14, 2019 at 7:40 pm

        Will there still be stream 2 this year? Stream 1 is likely to go for camp it possible to go to camp in December?

    • Humphery

      During onkine registration, NYSC allows you to choose 4 states. From the selected states, they will post you to one. That’s all! Nothing more nothing less.

    Is it true that batch C stream 2 will not take place when the potential Corp members are few in number because I heard that when student are few, NYSC officials always cancel batch C stream 2. Then those who had already made plans for batch C stream 2 will have to wait till next year.
    Some of us might want to register late in order to be part of stream 2. Like you said in your post, those who register early are likely to be part of Batch C stream 1.

    • Humphery

      September 21, 2019 at 9:34 am

      Some times it happens that way, some times NYSC will open registration portal to take more people that will complete the required number for stream2
