Good evening
On my SHS cert, there was a mistake with the date of birth in stead of 1993 it was 1994
I have done affidavit of the correction and gazetted it.
Is that going to be a problem?

The U.S embassy don't accept affidavits from commissioner of oaths. Its useless to them.But you can do it just in case.
Since the error with your D.O.B has to do with the DAY but not MONTH or the YEAR.I believe it might not even come up in your interview. I know because I had the same problem.And remember, WAEC don't change D.O.B.Also don't try to alter it for you it will end up worsening your case.
I have similar problem instead of 1993 it was made 1994 is that going to cause a problem for me? ? I have affidavit and I have also gazetted it.. but I have a university degree also.. my interview date is near and the error in the date of birth is giving me headaches

There are often errors in details in SHS certificates it seems. As long as they can be sure it is actually your certificate, and all your official documents (birth certificate, passport) are correct you should be fine.

The card is not necessary. If all your other documents bears the correct date of birth, you should not worry. You'll be fine. All the best and don't forget to share your interview experience as soon as possible.

Interview experience 02/04/2019

It all begun with dumsor, as I couldn't get electricity(power) to press my African wear, latter on changed to my normal working dress.( as normal for our Ghanaian perspective)

6:00 am, I left the house by dropping at the embasy at 7:15am. Just for a while, I saw a long queue marching under the tree heading towards the entrance near the security check point.
I became curious and run to fix myself just behind the last.
A lady came to check our appointment letters and later our passports were checked at the outside gate before we entered the first entrance.
At the first entrance, our bags were put on the wheel belt and moved ahead for scanning.

Our bodies were scanned and latter asked to further our journey to the second entrance.

@ the second entrance, the lady took our appointment letters and we were asked to comfortably sit.
Just within 30 minutes our names were called by order of submission of our appointment letters.
We all got to the last Boot (13) to pick the currency rate form (1 $ = 5.30p) and wrote our names and currency to be paid on the paper.


After this, another queue was formed to window 1 to pay our money ($ 330, or GHC 1749.00)
afterwards, the reciepts were taken and proceeded to the next round where our documents were sorted out for further interview.


Around 9:00 am, I was called to window 4.
( White man).
I was praying to ESCAPE the black American man @ window 6, because he denied the first guy this morning on educational requirements wassce .

Now at the burning furnace time.

CO: . Good morning young guy, welcome.

Magic: good morning sir how are you?

CO: Raise up your hands and swear this ............blablabla?

Magic man: I responded yes.

CO: I can see, u have a bachelor's degree from valley view university, is that true?

Magic man : Yes.

CO: when did you complete your high sch?.

Magic man: pardon?


Note: I internally pardoned in order to rememer by the time He would have finished asking the second time.

CO: I mean your high school year?

Magic man: 2003

CO: what ? 2010?

Magic man : no I said 2003.
CO: okay sorry.

CO: after high school year, what did you do?.

Magic man: I was a teacher ( private).

CO: which pupil do you teach ?

Magic man: elementary or basic school.

CO: thus nice.

CO: what work will you do in USA

Magic man: since teaching is my profession and had had an experience for 8 years plus 3 years teaching in private schools, I will further to teach in America.

CO: oh thus nice

CO; which state are u going.?

Magic man :...........

CO: whom are u going to stay with?

Magic man: my friend.

CO: you are a young brave man, congratulations, you are in America today, but take this printed form and read to follow the instructions for your visa in two weeks.
Bye bye.

Magic man: I just gave a smile back to him and thanked him.

CO: I like your gentle dressing too.

Magic man: thank you.

( note: dress to impress , not too much but look natural African, it counts, when I got der, he greeted me and welcomed me by my dressing: white Long sleeve - saint Phillip shirt, with my bow tie, and and designed belt). - dress your documents too with truth and that one will qualify you more.

Also don't forget your prayer, .......may God see anyone tru after reading my experience... Goodluck

Good evening, my quest

Good evening, my previous question has already been answered concerning the year of birth on my wasse certificate instead of 1993 it was printed 1994. please i need further clarification; when i go for the interview should i point it out to them that i have a mistake with my year of birth and that i have affidavit and have also gazzerted the correction or i should just allow them to figure the error themselves and ask me questions about it. am a little nervous at this moment. i have a bachelors degree to add to the wasse cert(i completed uni just last year). Guys please i need advice. i can not afford to f*ck this up lol. Thank you very much as you reply to this.

You have been answered already. Keep your affidavit to yourself until until it comes up. Reposting the same question won't change anything. As we said, if all other documents are fine, then you will be fine so be calm.
 
You must stop this behavior. What help can you offer him? Are you the CO or kcc official?. We all got help from this platform and if you have any contributions, you put it here. Stop putting your number on a social platform like this and behave.

Tuga thanks for the advice, ur a brother, wen we go wrong we need correction. God bless you more tuga. Keep correcting us.
