Philippine Military Academy is conducting the PMA Entrance Examination for PMA Cadetship today, August 28 on 37 examination centers nationwide, the 6th Civil Relation Group of the Armed Forces of the Philippines announced.

In a press statement, the military said that getting accepted in the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) entails getting a well-rounded education in academics, leadership, teamwork and physical fitness while receiving a salary and allowances higher than those received by the highest ranking enlisted personnel of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP)—all these while studying.

Moreover, a guaranteed job awaits every PMA cadet after graduation and each is assured to have a progressive career as a Regular Officer in the Philippine Army, Philippine Air Force (PAF) or the Philippine Navy (PN).

Most importantly, it bestows a rare privilege to serve his or her country.
For one to become a PMA cadet, he or she must be a natural born citizen, single and has never been married, stands at least 5’4” for male and 5’2” for female, graduated high school with a general average of 85 percent or higher, physically fit for training and has no administrative or criminal case.

Applicants must at least be 17 years old, but not a day older than 22 years old and a day younger than 17 years old, on April 01, 2012. And more importantly, they must pass the PMA entrance examination.

The military further noted that an exemption has been made that allows 16-year-old applicants for cadetship who meet the aforementioned qualifications to take the qualifying examination since its result will be valid for two years. — PIA
