What Are Implications Of Reducing Age As Against The Age On WAEC Certificate? by Nobody: 3:00pm On Nov 08, 2019
I would like everyone to contribute to this topic.

I am 29 years old, by next month I will turn 30. But I am not happy that I am turning 30 with nothing to show for it.

There are lots of job opportunities out there for 26 years old applicants only, if you are 27 you will not be considered. Even the outsourcing firms are on this age restriction too. I went to an outsource firm last month for job. One of the guys that work there checked my credentials and said 'you are 30, I told him I am 29 not 30' thinking there could be a chance for me to get immediate attention. The guy told me, there is an IT(information Technology) interview tomorrow which I would have sent your credentials to the HR but your age is against you. I was sad about this.

Now, my question is, "would there be any penalty for age reduction"? I am using WAEC and you know what that mean. I am planning to go to court for age affidavit.

Your contributions is paramount here. Thanks

Simple advice - never adjust your age.

I think embellishing and exaggerating work experience can still be explained away but not outright age falsification.


PS - I exaggerated work experience at the start of my career. As i got better jobs with quality experience, i slowly went back to reduce the fiction.

NOTE - It is unfair for you to put up the certificate of someone else for public consumption. If MODs are active, this should be taken down and you should be banned if you don't desist. This is wrong.

Now you see how our copy copy system kills dreams and sincere minds...meanwhile those enforcing these age crap aren't saints themselves.

My advice: be patient and keep searching or better still try entrepreneurship. God will see you through.

Damnnnnn. Blur that your name or niggarrrs will bomb you before evening. But the age on that certificate is different from the one you stated. Are you a niggarrr or a female?

As a real niggarrr that i am
I would say changing your age will will fuckkk you up overseas. When ever you decide to travel and do something useful there. Probably Education things.

I would advice you to calm down
Let me tell you a secret woman
What will be will be
Don't rush anything when the time comes and when the time is right it will happen

Continue with that age woman
You are who you are
Their approval is not needed
See ehnnnnn sometimes this life get as he be. Wetin go happen go still happen

My interviewer once aske me if i smoke
And i said yes but i smoke the other one. And still my name was on the list of people employed

But for now i might say to you as a real niggarrr
Just do some bombings with updated tools and format and change your IP ( internet protocol)
Women are even good in bombings than niggarrrs

Buhari reduced his age
Tinubu reduced his age
Has anything happened to them?

The mistake you did is by not reducing your age before writing Waec.

That reminds me of my friend that used to brag about his age back then in school, i told him the implication of him using his real age, it was when he was denied NYSC that he valued not using a real age. He can't even apply for some jobs cus of age restrictions ,went to do affidavit but its too late
No implications. Afterall
Buhari is using official Age without implications on him, why will changing of age have implications on you if you do the same wisely.

Op ,after 13 years of writing Waec ,you're still seeking for job and now ,age is now the barrier, sorry oh. Government should cancel NYSC and empower graduates with a reasonable money, come to think of the money used in camping corpers, feeding, uniform , allawee and paying NYSC staff
PrincessGift:
please what is the least Age for NYSC?

I don't think there is any least age.
People are serving at 18
Like having SSCE @ 14, some @ 13.
Depending on how fast you gain admission and how fast the higher institution is

stanliwise:
Not true, age of getting into the University is 16 and above.
it is called NYSC meanings National Youth..... So 21 is the minimum age anyone should be doing NYSC

grin are you saying there is no corpers around 18 years?

When you finally get a good job and it was later discovered you falsified your age, that results into integrity issue and you will likely lose your job due to that.


Bankers can bear me witness. cool

The Nigerian labour market is ageist. Once you are approaching 25 and still job hunting, just learn a skill and be self employed. If you are in a serious relationship, get married and start a family. Develop other areas of your life too while you await a job slot as a civil servant. This is your only saving grace of ever being a salaried worker.

Ps... You know that you don't have sense sha abi? You posted your original certificate. So that future employers can search for you, trace it to nairaland and know that you lied about your age to get the job.

I reduced 2 years out of mine every year for the last 4 years and it has been wonderful experience so far.

The joy of looking at your birth certificate reading '22' for 4 conservative years, it's amazing.

No implications my dear op, do whatever you have to do. Las Las no Nigerian is going to heaven.

Remember the longer you wait to reduce that age, the OLDER you'll get and the more jobs you'll miss.

If they're heartless enough to denied me a job because of my age, then I should be heartless enough to cut a little tiny teeny number out my age.

You might get the job but, retaining it might need extreme care.

You must keep keeping under the radar.

I know a bank BM that lost his job for this.

Having age discrepancies may be a ground for visa rejection. That is if you have plans of pursuing studies abroad.

Don’t let your age bother you. If you think deeply, you have achieved much over the years. Just that you aren’t where you want to be yet.

You’ll be fine in the end with your real age!
