I am glad to tell you that you don't need to imagine any longer. I am going to take you through the future so that you can know everything about NYSC before the next mobilization. Get a cup of water and let's take a walk to the future. 

NYSC Mobilization

The first thing that comes up before anything is the NYSC Mobilization. This is when the NYSC management will mobilize all qualified graduates from every accredited institution in the country. The Mobilization always comes as breaking news by the NYSC officials who will then release a Timetable that will show the schedule of what will happen from uploads of Senate list till registration date.

The Senate List

The Senate list is an official list of names and details of graduates who are eligible for NYSC from every institution in the country. The NYSC management always specifies a whole month for various institutions to upload the names of their candidates who are qualified. After the uploads of Senate list, prospective Corps members can then check their names. Once your name is on that list, you are good to go.
