Wrong Date of Birth on Your Transcript: The Ways Out of the Problems it Causes
Having different dates of birth on your documents like NIN, international passport, licenses and transcripts might not be a big deal if all you do is local, but the time you decide to go international, like get a job abroad or try to get an admission abroad or a visa to travel abroad or something, then is when you’d realize the problems having different dates of birth on your needed documents can cause you. Although your name and age are two things most countries are able to afford to allow you claim as they suite you; Nigeria is one of the countries that can afford leaving your name and date of birth to you to determine (we might or never get to when Nigeria allows you to determine your gender), but still, the authorities in Nigeria, for understandable reasons, still make claiming different names and different dates of birth regrettable for you. Example of this is when you, for some reasons, leave one date of birth with your school when you got admitted and you leave another date of birth on your national and international identification documents; every institution that would be involved in fixing these differences for you would make you regret you let this happen to you.
You don’t want to go to Immigration office to change the date of birth on your passport to match the one on your transcript, because then they would ask you to go change the one on your NIN first and that one would cost you so much money and time; trust that Immigration office would charge you high too, and everything would take a while to complete. Not that trying to change the date of birth on your transcript is allowed by your school, but people always have their ways around things like this (this is Nigeria); so, schools might insist they don’t change dates of birth on transcripts, but nothing is impossible if you know you ways. You can call us on +2348139534187 to know if we are able to offer such help in your school; it’s not many schools we can do this at, but we have enough resources at some schools to be able to pull a cat out of a hat for you on modifying your date of birth to the preferred one.
