When you have issues with your date of birth while going for NYSC, it may have a series of effects that may not be pleasing eventually.

One such effect is, it may lead to over-age (more than 30 years) which disallows NYSC to mobilize you for the one-year national service scheme.

Graduates should, also, be curious to get all their information to align with one another because of what may crop up in the future such as screening, appointments etc.

Official NYSC Correction of Date of Birth Guide

The new procedure for the PCM is to Submit a request for correction of date of birth following the following steps
  • Login to your dashboard and click on the link to Date of Birth
  • Enter WAEC Verification PIN, select WAEC Type, Year of exam and enter your Examination Number; and
  • Click on Verify button
  • Click SUBMIT

  1. What NYSC will eventually do after the submission is to verify the date of birth used during your WAEC registration and use that date of birth instead.
  2. WAEC verification card contains PIN produced by WAEC to verify a WAEC May/June or WAEC GCE candidate's submitted details while registering with the exams body.
  3. This card is different from WAEC online result checker.
  4. You can buy this PIN at various WAEC offices or designated banks across the nation. You can also call or text me to buy (08077155623)
  5. Using this method for the correction of date of birth may only work for WAEC candidates only.
