NYSC Batch C 2013 Timetable is OUT!!!

Hi guys!

I'm back from the beyond (aka my other blog, Berry Dakara) to announce that the Timetable for Batch C 2013 prospective corps members is officially out! This was my batch in 2012 - ahhhh, the memories :-|

Anyways, if you want the full table, it can be found here: NYSC Website Batch C Timetable.

For YOUR ease, just use the dates in the table below. These are most relevant to you.

Registration of Foreign-trained Nigerian Graduates 12th August - 11th October, 2013
Delivery of Call-up letters to Institutions / NYSC Secretariats 29th - 31st October, 2013
2013 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Course aka CAMP 5th November - 26th November, 2013

I remember registering as a foreign grad, and having to fly from PH twice because I didn't have the correct document (very annoying, but I kinda like Abuja, so I didn't mind too much). 

I've copied and pasted the requirements for registration below, so please start making sure you have all the necessary documents.

      prospective Corps Member who lost his/her passport would be required to present;
    • Police and Immigration reports from the country where the Passport got missing
    • Sworn Affidavit
    • The above documents should contain the same information as contained in the lost passport.

  • Special Note:
    • Registration of foreign-trained graduates commences on 12th August and closes on 11th October, 2013
    • Foreign-trained graduates enlisting into the Nigerian Youth Service are not obliged to choose their State of deployment. However, married women would be deployed to the state where their husbands are domiciled provided their marriage certificate and evidence of change of name are attached to their forms
    • Registration is not done by proxy. All prospective Corps Members must therefore appear physically at the Evaluation Division of the Corps mobilization Department for registration.
Okay, I think that covers it. BEST OF LUCK!
