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!

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 naked 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).

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

Gentlelord:� Those with colored printing were the first to be screened out�. it adds no value whatsoever.
You can search the Chairman's photo online since he's a public figure and print it then attach, and about the declaration by parent only 1 copy is needed, no need to print another as long uv already have a signed 1.

Gentlelord:*1 I printed 2 copies of the local government attestation form (reference form) which i got 1 signed by a military officer and the other by the LG secretary which he refused to affix his photo insisting that's how does for all other applicants. Next is the attestation for Local government of origin ( which contains my photo ) , this was also signed by the LG secretary.
*2 I gave two to the LG secretary, one that requires his passport and comment in a box specified ( the reference form/ local government attestation form), then the attestation for local government of origin ( this already has my photo on it).
*3 I don't really remember if the court had collected a copy from me, all i remember is i simply made copies of the signed form afterwards. NA only requires the original signed form.
*4 Mine also wouldn't part with his passport as i stated earlier but signed the two forms ( attestation for LG of origin and reference form).

ugo4u:i was at NASB 2014, i had my local government form filled by my loc gov sec bt couldn't get him to part wit his photo n got my referee form filled by an army colonel, while at d screening dey paid no attention to d local gov form rather only d latter. My guess is one should suffice bt its better to have d two jst in case.

lekzzydo:Sorry bro! it also seem to me they only shortlisted Information technology and all other computing courses (despite advertised on their site) were not considered. I was tld an automated system is designed to screen out all without the requirements, I stand to be corrected especially considering som1 said ppl with 2:2 got shortlisted. This ain't our first time n it sure as hell won't b our last. Victory is from God! Congratulations n Best of luck to the shortlisted.

Reader1988:Guy i gotta be honest wit u its a real issue cox they r lookn for d slighest excuse to get u disqualified. I happen to have d same issue, i got as far as the Army dssc 2014 selection board n as luck would have it no one mentioned anything about my waec n date of birth age difference only that while my credentials were being screened a colonel took his time to scrutinize my cert of birth n then asked his colleague who's another colonel " this is a the real one abi?" and he said yes it is, my heart was pounding to d extent he (the first colonel) noticed and made a joke bout it lol but that was it. So my advice is just pray. Victory is from God!
