The senate of Nigeria’s Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has listed the documents that every National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member has to show up at the camp with.
Nigeria has two distinct organisations: the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board and the National Youth Service Corps . The two work together during every batch and stream of the compulsory one year service to country.
The government organisation administering the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination is called JAMB (UTME). Every Nigerian citizen must take this exam in order to be admitted to any higher institutions in Nigeria.
On the other hand, the Nigerian Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is a federal government organisation in charge of the 12-month national service required for Nigerian graduates after school. The main purpose of NYSC is to promote unity after the civil war of 1967 to 1970.
There is a connection between NYSC and JAMB, which is why JAMB’s mobilization list is necessary for NYSC. If your name is not on this JAMB matriculation list, you cannot sign up for the NYSC. All it needs is your name, and you are good to go.
The goal is to ensure that everyone participating in the NYSC programme has successfully completed the JAMB examination.
What does NYSC senate list mean?
The short answer to the question is, the senate list is a special list by an institution that contains the names of graduates qualified for the National Youth Service Corps programme for a particular batch or stream.
During every batch and stream of the NYSC, every accredited institution always releases a list called the senate list. This list is what the NYSC management will process and once it’s added to the portal, every graduate whose name is that senate list will be able to do the online registration to enable them go for NYSC.
The National Youth Service Corps is a mandatory programme in Nigeria that every graduates must participate in. Once you are a graduate of an institution, your school will mobilise you for NYSC. All you have to do is your registration and NYSC will take it up from there.
The National Youth Service Corps management does not know who you are, until your school submist a list which is called the senate list. On that list, your school will compile the names of graduates who are qualified and send them to NYSC.
If your name is not on the senate list, you will not be able to do your NYSC registration or follow the coming batch. The senate list is very important and if you notice your name is not on this list, you can contact your school and ask for more updates.
