PMA entrance exams set on August 26

The Philippine Military Academy will conduct the PMA Entrance Examination (PMAEE) on August 26, 2012 in thirty-seven (37) examination centers nationwide.

The PMA Entrance Exam is the first stage in the selection process for admission in the premier leadership training school in the country.
 The PMA accepts applicants with  minimum height of 5 ft, both for male and female.

The changes in the minimum height requirement came about when it was observed during the conduct of the Limited Physical Examination (LPE) in different exam centers, that many are denied the chance to go through the first phase of the selection process, solely for the reason of not meeting the height requirement. 

Addressing one of the major issues that usually deters interested applicants from entering the Academy, PMA has made a firm stand on its policy against maltreatment in the Cadet Corps, Armed Forces of the Philippines (CCAFP).

The Academy is aggressively implementing a “No Maltreatment Policy” among the cadets.

It teaches cadets strict adherence to the provisions of human rights, the international humanitarian law (IHL) and the rule of law, starting from their cadetship during which they are moulded to become future military leaders.

Other requirements for cadet admission are the following: Natural-born Filipino citizen, physically fit  and of good moral character, single and has never been married, at least high school graduate,  no administrative/criminal case, must pass the PMAEE, and should be born from April 01, 1991 to April 01, 1996.

Being a PMA cadet gives an individual a noble privilege of serving the country. As a cadet, one can avail of a free college education with a well-rounded curriculum.

Cadets also receive monthly pay and allowances as  members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

After graduating from the Academy, one is guaranteed a progressive career as an officer in the Army, Navy or Air Force, and a distinct privilege of serving the country through the military profession.

Successful applicants will compose the PMA Class 2017 which will be officially received as cadets in an Oath-Taking Ceremony and Reception Rites on April 01, 2013.

Walk-in Applicants: Those who were not able to submit their application forms on time may apply as 'walk-in' applicants. Usually, the processing of walk-in applicants is in the morning of the examination date, except, when the OIC of the Examination Team in the area schedules a separate date for them. It is also heavily dependent on the availability of testing materials.
