PMA announced that 1,046 examinees out of 9,609 qualified examinees composed of 643 males and 403 females successfully passed the PMA Entrance Exam (PMAEE) last August 21, 2016 in 38 different testing centers nationwide. All passers had been qualified to continue to the next phase of the selection process to become a Philippine Military Academy Cadet.
The PMAEE measures the mental ability of applicants in the areas of MATH (Algebra and Geometry), ENGLISH (Grammar, Composition, and Reading and Comprehension) and Abstract Reasoning (Verbal and Numerical Reasoning and Pattern Analysis).
This year, currently enrolled college students were allowed to take the PMA entrance exam. In previous years, graduating high school students were encouraged to take the exam. However, with the implementation of the K+12 Program, interested students enrolled in senior high will have to take the exam by 2017.
These young men and women will take the Complete Physical Exam (CPE) which will be conducted at the Armed Forces of the Philippines Medical Center in V Luna, Quezon City. This phase will test their medical, physical, and psychological potential to belong to the members of PMA Class of 2021.
PMA Entrance Exam is the first stage in the selection process for cadetship in the premier leadership training school in the country.
Benefits of the PMA Cadets
PMA Cadets may enjoy a full government scholarship. It means that they do not have to pay any single centavo during the entire duration of their training in the Academy where they will earn a Bachelor of Science Degree. This covers the salary he receives every month, the initial clothing allowance, and the support for the services in connection with his stay in the Academy. They are also commissioned as 2LTs and Ensigns in the Armed Forces of the Philippines upon their graduation.
Cadets are welcome to experience the state-of-the-art training facilities and equipment in PMA. Such as model classrooms, new cadet barracks (student dorms), computer rooms, simulation rooms, fitness center and PMA hospital.
After the series of examinations, the PMA Cadet Procurement Board will deliberate and select the most qualified candidates to compose PMA Class of 2018 who are expected to report to Philippine Military Academy on April 1, 2017 for the Oath-taking Ceremony and Reception Rites.
