This article is written to guide every Prospective Corps Members (PCM) on how to choose 4 states during NYSC online registration. Every information about the NYSC zoning and selection of Four (4) states of choice during online registration is well explained on this article.
How it works
You will only be allowed to select Four states from the six (6) Geo-political zone in Nigeria.
Note: You are not allowed to select your State of origin and State of Institution of graduation for those who studied outside their state of origin. Also, only one state is allow to be selected from each zone.
Although there are six (6) Geo-political zones in Nigeria, you will not be allowed to choose 6 states, but only 4 states.
Now, let us look at Geopolitical Zones In Nigeria and states within them.
1. North Central(NC) Zone
Federal Capital Territory
2. North East(NE) Zone
3. North West(NW) Zone
4. South East(SE) Zone
5. South West(SW) Zone
6. South South(SS) Zone
Remember that from the 4 selected states, NYSC will deploy you to one of the states, and it usually done randomly by the NYSC system.
HOW TO CHOOSE
This is how to make the selection:
1 state from the NC zone
1 state from either NE or NW zones
1 state from either SE or SS zones
1 state from the SW zone.
No NYSC human official will look at your registration, It is Automated by their system. So it does not matter where you live, the number of states you chose as visited.
When Corps Members are being posted the algorithm automatically selects the Prospective Corps Members (PCM) choice of state randomly in successive order.
It is not about the first to register, the machine do rank PCM registration in Batches for example: The first 5000 members to register might complete the first batch (am not sure on the number though).
With the information provided on this article, Prospective Corps Members (PCM) will no longer be taken unaware when they are to select states to serve.
We hope this article is helpful to you, kindly share with your friends.
