Re: Nigerian Navy Direct Short Service Course Aspirants(dssc) 2015 by Derekyayo(m): 2:41pm On Jun 21
This has been bugging for quiet sometime now and need further clarification on it. Does the SSC recruitment happen the same time with the DSSC recruitment or do graduates apply all at once then during screening SSC and DSSC are differentiated? My reason for this question is that I graduated with a strong 2:2 sadwhich I still lament till date if not for some C's embarassed, and in the general requirements it clearly states that only graduates with first and upper class are allowed to apply otherwise calls for automatic disqualification; also I prefer being a combatant so there is that. So will like to know when the difference in SSC and DSSC application so as to know when to be on high already.

Sorry for the long write up get carried away when am on my keypads

nelkon9999:

Yes. The only reason I'm putting that out here is to encourage someone, anyone, to try and be better. Don't try to compete with anybody, just be better than the person you were yesterday.
For screening purposes you don't need more than 3.2Km or 3.5Km max, but make it a lifestyle and the screening will just be a breeze.

Stop the assumption based on your thoughts.. Some of you do not know how hacking or websites works.. Bvn can be requested for to curb age falsification and I think navy requested for it in the last recruitment too.. More so, after registering there was access to their database to print documents..

Please be sure of what you are posting.

Stop saying what you don't know.. I have gone for Airforce interview before, BVN was requested..

Further more, talking about the purpose of this, hacking can be done for couple of hours to steal necessary data and information, for it to be done for days then the hacker has access to your Web hosting database or server which is very rare and would be detected after couple of hours.

Please TemmE how a scammer would have access to an army database?

If this was the case the website would have been down between I'm a web developer, designer and a programmer.. Cyber security education should be incorporated into tertiary curriculum now a days.
