  10. Hi Lola, i am seeing my name and that of my colleagues who have been cleared on the graduation list on nysc portal but it still showing no record found on the senate list.

    • Senate list and graduation list are two different list. The graduation list contains the names of all graduates of an institution.

      The reason why the graduation list is on NYSC portal is just for NYSC to see if it correspond with the Senate list.

      The Senate list is the most important and if your name is not in that place saying no record found, you won’t be able to register.

      Senate list is the most important, so forget graduation list and contact your school to upload your senate list.

    Good evening Lola, thanks for giving everyone this much attention. My question is, does ones call up unique number determine his or her stream? For example your unique number is 277,994, does it mean you won’t be in the first stream ?

    My second question is, I finished from Uniben and on our statement of result surnames are Capitalised …
    So My name appeared as David Omotola, AJAYI.(surname indicated in upper case alphabet)

    On my green card and Nysc dash board it appears as
    Ajayi, David Omotola.( Surname punctuated by a comma)

    Hope it’s no issue?
