johnmarcel:Very correct @johnmacel. Its so frustrating and discouraging to not be shortlisted after all the efforts of getting those documents signed.

Kindly share your experience
When your name came out
Time given to prep for screening
What to look out for during the credentials screening
How you scaled through medicals
Your experience during the 3.5 kilometers jog/run
Push up and sit up how many and what's the time limit
Apart from the essay about *why you wanna join za army* how was the aptitude test
I heard candidates were re-tagged before they entered the NASB for dssc ...what prompted that,cos now news about that in the SSC
Please expantiate on the anus screening....hope it's only open the buttocks,bend and cough.....Dem no go insert any foreign object in za hole
The Unclad screening.....is it done on a one on a Doctor base or in Mass.....like everyone one go Unclad....or enter a room get Unclad for screening
Did you get in straight or with godfather's assistant.....+you don't have to answer this if you don't want to
What were the amenities provided in the camp at jigawa
For dressing....is the new Dunlop white all stars allowed or it must be a canvass
Heard that the SSC guys 2016 did some huddles and bush testing in NDA.....was it the same for DSSC (or was it only push up,sit up and running)
From the last day of screening to the day the final names came out....what was the waiting duration...(I know it will vary)
Was it only food that was provided during the screening or food and drinkable water
Like SSC,heard they didn't ignore or bypass any fault...but they did in the dssc......what were the minimal faults that was overlooked
Stories of people joining 2 or 1 months/month respectively before pop... how true is that.....
Lastly......can you confirm lebete3000 story.... cos it seems you were in the same set.

ELJC:bros make dem make it 35 years at least African especially Nigeria youth at 35 are very able and energetic
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by ELJC(m): 10:26pm On Nov 08|
enesi009:yeah 35 is okay still falls in the range
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by Sheriff232: 10:46pm On Nov 08|
enesi009:You will not be able to grow in the job,some profession require you enroll at a younger age so you can have a profetting career progression,if you join army at the age of 35 and not with the rank of a major as done for consultants then you are doing yourself a disservice,you will find out that you will retire at a very low rank.This is the only advantage that regular trained officers have over short service,most of them pass out at 20,21 and at most 23,so you find out that at 28 they are already captain and at 33 or 34 they are already major,so the issue of age bracket is good in some professions.But jobs like civil service,NNPC,DPR,NPA etc,i think they should review the age bracket for employment,this is because retirement here is either on attainment of 60 years of age or 35 years of concurrent service unlike the armed forces that each rank has an age ceiling
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by enesi009: 11:40pm On Nov 08|
Sheriff232:I agree with you but the military can still do it if dey want it simply adjusting dear rank and age law dey fixed and increasing retirement age to 65-70 dats all because dats the more reason many Nigerian youth are reducing deir age and still applying for the Armed Forces work like army,Navy and Air Force
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by enesi009: 11:52pm On Nov 08|

|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by Diflun: 11:54pm On Nov 08|
erimakosamuel:You will have to forgive me, my memory is a bit rusty .
I cannot confirm lebete3000's story cox i didn't make the final list, i only went as far as the selection board
if i remember correctly, 15 of us were shortlisted and we were given 14 days ( not really sure about the exact days ) to report to NASI Jaji ( Jigawa was in 2016), 13 of us reported.
Just like NYSC there were male and female hostels and the food was edible , and there was mami market very close to the hostel.
The credential screening began 3 or 4 days after we reported and ended the same day. As long as your papers are intact and you do not exceed the age limit then you are good. In my case my waec has a different DOB from my birth cert, hence i was so nervous when i handed the colonel ( one hansome igbo man with glasses ) my papers, he noticed my fear and asked if i was afraid and i replied no , he scrutinized all the documents and when he came to my cert of birth he gave it to the other colonel ( i was later told he is the military secretary) and said " Oga this is the real thing ba" and the MS (colonel JB Abdulkarim) replied "yes it is and a very young man" ( i was 23 as at that time), and then my documents were returned to me. Those that weren't qualified were announced the next day, 3 people in my stated were sent packing. We have not gotten really acquainted to know the details of their disqualification.
Next is the aptitude test which consists of the almighty " Why do want to join the Nigerian army", it was just like any other tests with objectives and fill in the blanks consisting of maths, english and current affairs, then the psycho test which consists of logic and some really twisted questions about your personality, habits, ideologies, perceptions, etc. After the test then the verbal psychological interview which the questions depend on the psychologists ( A Col, a Lt and a female Squadron leader) view about your physical set up, some were only asked to show their palms, well, i was asked my name, state and how i make ends meet, that's all. I don't remember if anyone was screened out after the psycho test but they were obviously hunting for drug users.
Next is the medicals which took 2 to 3 days to conclude. it was really fun because we got really acquainted with our state member and other state members while waiting hours for each states turn for the medical screening. it started with the stool sample, then blood sample, next is the BMI then the eye screening, there was nothing like getting Unclad or anus screening we were simply asked to raise our shirts above our navels and they didn't check for flat foot, i remember one of us who is now an officer has flat foot, he was also nervous as i was in the credential screening . Finally we proceeded to the final stage which is the full chest scan.
After the medicals have been concluded,a day or two, a lot of candidates were sent packing which includes 2 in my state.
The next stage was the 3.5km jogging which started early in the morning, the females were given a head start and then the males followed, it was already drizzling when we started and ended in a heavy rain, i arrived in the first bus ( there were 4 buses depending on the time one arrives), i cant recall the timing for each bus. Because of the rain the physical exercise and obstacles was postponed until later in the day which starts with 70 push ups in 60 secs/counts, then immediately 70 sit ups in 70 secs, next is wall climbing which looks very easy for a tall person but
extremely hard after exhausted from the push and sit ups, jumping over a large hole, swinging over another hole while holding a rope and another holding iron bars over the ground, then crawling inside mud under a barbed wire and finally climbing a vertical rope to touch its tip. These all sound easy and fun but after those push and sit ups its another story it was so funny watching people trying to climb over that wall immediately after the sit ups , it was easy catching the top of the wall but its another story hauling your body over it
Lastly it was the selection board which was carried out state by state and starts from morning till morning (up to 2am), the board consists of the chairman of the board ( MJ Gen MD Abubakar), a Brig gen,about 3 or so Cols n Lt Cols, the commandant (Major CO Ani), one person gets called inside the room and the next person stays just outside the door, he gets in as soon as the first person comes out. When my turn came to stay near the door, i could faintly hear what was going on in the room , when he came out i heard a voice call out "next" and i entered, i strode in greeted the chairman then handed over my documents ( cant recall who collected them specifically), they where passed from person to person and i was instructed to sit, then i was told to pick a paper by my side and read, i read through a passage and upon ending the chairman asked if i was a journalist or have worked in a radio or tv station, i replied no sir, next i was told to pick a marker and go to a board close to me, i was asked to spell some words, one after the other they started ( i don't recall how many words or how many of them spoke the words), each candidates aptitude and phyco test results were present in the board and next the chairman asked the major to read out my essay " why do u want to join the NA", the major read and when he was halfway through the chairman waved him to stop. Next the brig gen asked me some questions about my field of study which he was clearly browsing through his phone and i answered, then a barrage of current affairs questions from left and right but mostly by the chairman ( i could only answer some ), finally he (chairman) asked me where my secondary school was located while holding my secondary cert and i told him, i was surprised how he knew the location even better than me. he finally said i can go.
After the board all are free to leave the camp anytime.
I might have skipped some details on the account of my rusty memory
A month or two later, out of 8 in my state that faced the board, 4 were shortlisted in the national dailies and 4 were dropped ( me included).

Sheriff232:bro are trying to say if one should get in (nda ssc) at 26 he wont atain good rank b4 retirement?
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by hausadreturn(m): 7:32am On Nov 09|
Sheriff232:It's quite hard to believe genuinely that a person of 20/21 will pass out of Nda and be an officer.
Are the 20/21 year old people in NDA particularly different in body size and shape than people of same age in the university?
Does the NDA give them so much balls at that age to become officers ready for battle?
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by enesi009: 8:12am On Nov 09|
hausadreturn:age bracket to gain admission to nda is (17-21)

|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by Sheriff232: 11:13am On Nov 09|
johnmarcel:If you enter with that age,you will rise very well but anything above 28,will be difficult,then dssc,if you can get at exactly 30,then you will good
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by Sheriff232: 11:15am On Nov 09|
enesi009:I have seen 22,23 even 21 though air force and navy because they spend 4 years in NDA,so no matter what,they must reach the peak of service and still very young

You are very right brotherly. The hausa guy that graduated from NDA last year or so as the overall best graduating cadet was 23 years old

Sir, Many thanks for your contributions on this thread, only the Almighty can reward you. I am an engineer and 26 years of age till september next year. I have applied for SSC. I have always admired the military police and wish I would be one someday. Please can you tell me more about selection criteria for MP's and if SSC can become an MP?
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by Sheriff232: 2:14pm On Nov 09|
Rangis0:Unless you chose MP,i don't see them posting you to the Corp,you will be posted to the Engineer or Electrical and mechanical engineer corp depending on your discipline,there's no much criteria,if you like the Corp you will be chosen,gud luck
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by Sheriff232: 3:23pm On Nov 09|
teametwin:SSC or dssc?,the number is small compared to 2016 that was 67 thousand and above,the number doesn't really matter,what's your own will locate,you will even be surprised how you made it,most of us got it without knowing anybody because of fear of the president,like joke like joke the thing was done by merit,pray for your luck

For someone who studied psychology, what law enforcement is the best to join?
The Army (dssc) or the police?
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by Gentlelord(m): 5:43pm On Nov 09|
wow thanks oga Diflun for sharing your experience with us, if I may ask, what happened to those persons who couldn't do the 70 sit up or push ups, or completely scale through the obstacle challenge, where they out rightly disqualified? And as regards the sit ups was someone made to apply pressure at the bent knees so that the buttocks doesn't leave the ground, or one was left to do it alone. I pray you would be successful this time.
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by Gentlelord(m): 5:54pm On Nov 09|
hausadreturn:You can try out Army DSSC apply under The Corp of Military Intelligence. if you are within the age bracket for SSC you can apply and you can also be sent to either Intelligence or Military Police (MP),Note that when applying for Army you are to choose either DSSC or SSC. if the form for police comes out and you are qualified, you can also apply, even try out Air Force and Navy, you never can tell.
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by hausadreturn(m): 6:30pm On Nov 09|
I'm past ssc that's why.
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by hausadreturn(m): 6:32pm On Nov 09|
It seems I'm the only one who have been following up, that's yet to apply.
I just want my mind to direct me, such that when I go in, I won't want to look back.
|Re: Nigerian Army SSC And DSSC 2016/2017 Forum by Diflun: 6:33pm On Nov 09|
Gentlelord:No more disqualification after medicals, all activities afterwards are graded with points and accumulated for every candidate. My brother forget about being able to do all the physical activities perfectly, i know candidates who performed poorly and are now officers and i know someone who was came first in the race and didn't make the list, just pray and if you are destined nothing can stop you.
Yield to nothing. Victory is from God!
