According to Act no. 24 of the Nigerian constitution, it is mandatory for all Nigerian graduates either home or abroad to partake in the compulsory service to the nation. This program is referred to as the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
NYSC wasn’t created only for the purpose of your fatherland, it equally serves as one of the major criteria that guarantee whether you will get a paid job or not.
This is because every government-owned organization or company and some private companies will ask for your NYSC certificate before you can stand a chance of working with them.
However, There are some steps that your institution (the school you graduated from) will have to take before you can be qualified to engage in the one-year national service. These steps include:
* Providing the list of graduating students to the sector/organization in charge of mobilization. This list will include everyone’s matriculation number and JAMB registration number.
In some cases, student’s Jamb registration number and records are not in Jamb’s archive which means such students/graduates are ineligible for the Youth Services until the carry out some certain steps.
Steps To Take If Your Record Isn’t Find In Jamb’s Archives :
You don’t need to panic if your records isn’t included in Jamb’s archive because the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has come up with Regularization process for students whose records are not in the board archive.

- Check and Correct Any Error In The Record Update: After the confirmation of your admission with JAMB, then a list will be sent back to the school from NYSC to check if there is an error in your name and correct it. This list is called the correction list.
The Senate List
Once the corrections are effected, your school will send the corrected list of students’ information back to the body in charge of the NYSC mobilization process.
After a while (possibly two or three weeks), the National Youth Service Corps will compile the names and send them back to your school in batches.
This last list is called the Senate List. It is the list that reveals the batch you belong to when mobilization begins. Therefore, The senate list contains the approved institutions that their students can be mobilized to serve the nation.
