Prospective NSS applicants should abreast themselves with the underlisted information
- THE AGE ON MY VOTER ID IS DIFFERENT FROM MY AGE, CAN I STILL USE THE ID FOR THE NSS REGISTRATION?
Yes. only your ID NUMBER will be needed therefore the age on the ID CARD is irrelevant for NSS registration.
2. IF YOU DO NATIONAL SERVICE IN A PRIVATE SCHOOL, WHO IS SUPPOSED TO PAY YOU?
Personnel posted to private schools fall under non-subverted categories meaning the private school is supposed to pay their monthly allowance. Usually, such persons are paid more than the GH559.04
3. IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN TWO NAMES AND INSTEAD OF USING ALL, YOU LEFT SOME OF IT OUT WHEN REGISTERING WITH YOUR SCHOOL, IS IT POSSIBLE TO ADD THE REST OF THE OTHER NAMES WHEN REGISTERING FOR NSS?
For NSS registration, you won’t provide your name again. The name which you use in your school is what has been sent to NSS. When you check on your PINCODE, your name, programme of study will appear. This explains the fact that your name has been captured by NSS from the data sent by your school.
4. IN SCHOOL, MY NAME IS MATHEW KWAME AFARI BUT ON MY ID CARD, THE NAME STIPULATED IS MATHEW TAKYI. CAN I DO THE ONLINE REGISTRATION WITH THESE TWO DIFFERENT NAMES?
Yes, you will be able to do the registration.
Even if the registration system refuses to verify your name because of the names do not match, you can still do the online registration by using different option.
5. WHAT IS SPECIAL POSTING, DIRECT POSTINGS OR REPOSTING?
Special posting is the same as direct posting. It is a term mostly used by students. Since NSS does not post students to their preferred organizations, prospective personnel can seek help of some NSS officers to work out for them to be posted to companies or organizations of their choice. And this is done every year. It is the surest way you can be posted to your school of choice.
So, when postings are released, these students are posted directly to the schools they sought from the NSS officer. This is what we call direct or special posting.
Some prospective personnel do not also seek help from anyone to be posted to their preferred organisations but when postings are released and do not like the places they have been posted to, they seek assistance to change to a preferred organisation. This is what we call reposting.
6. CAN NSS POST ME TO ANY SCHOOL OF MY CHOICE?
During online registration, you are only required to choose three different regions. There is no such provision on the online portal for you to choose a district or even the name of a school. You can only get posted to an organisation of choice if you know someone in NSS or you do special posting. With that your preference is guaranteed.
