FORT DEL PILAR, Philippines — The Philippine Military Academy announced yesterday that 1,506 examinees passed the PMA Entrance Examination (PMAEE) conducted last Sept. 9 in 41 testing centers nationwide.

(See full list of passers in the October 15, 2018 issue of The Philippine Star.)

Making it to the next phase of the selection process for PMA cadetship are 1,138 males and 368 females, whose complete physical examination is to be conducted at the Armed Forces of the Philippines Health Service Command on V. Luna Road in Quezon City. They will be notified through their email addresses, registered mail and phone numbers.

Successful applicants will go through medical, psychological and physical examination to determine their fitness to undergo the four–year military training in the academy. After the series of examinations, the PMA Cadet Procurement Board will deliberate and select the most qualified candidates to compose PMA Class of 2023 who are expected to report to the PMA on June 1, 2019 for the oath-taking ceremony and reception rites.

The conduct of the PMA Entrance Examination this year has registered the highest turnout in the history of the Academy with 28,366 applicants completing the Cadet Qualification Test.

The influx of applicants, mostly grade 12 students and graduates of senior high school, was said to be the result of a collective strategy employed by the academy to attract and engage prospective applicants, mainly through the use of social media.

Despite projections of fewer examinees due to the approval of the free college education bill, the exodus of applicants evidently speaks of PMA’s undiminished market value.

Even with the implementation of the bill this school year, PMA has undoubtedly positioned itself on sturdy ground in terms of what it can offer to cadet-aspirants, providing not only free college education but also offering more incentives and benefits than what any of the full scholars of state-run universities and colleges are getting.

Being a PMA cadet gives an individual the privilege of serving the country through the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ three branches of service – Army, Navy or Air Force.
