Will they make me do mil service if come as an exchange student?

Dear Switzerland enthusiasts,
I am a swedish person with dual citizenship who may be going as an exchange student to Romandy in a year from now. I will be 23 at that time.
As the title suggests, I am afraid I will have problems with the government if I go, as military service is mandatory for all men deemed fit.
How should I go about this? Is there a chance the swiss authorities will not even see that I am a swiss citizen and thus obliged to serve?

As soon as you register you will probably be asked to do the service, or try and find your way out through an exception.

If you are older than 25 you won't have to anymore, but you will have to pay the tax or do zivilschutz
