DAGUPAN CITY -The Philippine Military Academy (PMA), the premier leadership training school in the country, will hold its qualifying examination for cadetship at the University of Pangasinan-PHINMA here on August 25.

All interested applicants are advised to be at the testing center by 7a.m., bringing with them the following: two pieces 2X2 pictures, two pieces number 2 pencils, National Statistics Office-authenticated birth certificate, form 137 and valid identification card.

PMA said in a statement that this year, it will accept interested applicants with a minimum height of 5 feet, both for male and female.

The lowering of the height requirement from 5 feet and 4 inches for male and 5 feet and 2 inches for female is expected to bring about increase in the number of applicants.

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

With the previous height requirement, many Filipino youth, who have a good educational background and are physically fit, are disenfranchised from the opportunity of being able to take entrance examination.

With the adjustment made in the height requirement, PMA will be increasing the pool where the best candidate for PMA cadetship will be selected.

Other requirements for admission in the PMA 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 PMA entrance exam, and should have been born from April 01, 1992 to April 01, 1997.

Being a PMA cadet gives an individual a noble privilege in serving the country. One is able to avail of a free college education with a well-rounded curriculum as well as receive monthly pay and allowances. After graduating from the Academy, one is guaranteed a progressive career as an officer in the Army, Navy or Air Force.

Successful applicants will compose the PMA Class 2018 who will be officially received in the Academy in an Oath-Taking Ceremony and Reception Rites on April 01, 2014. (MCA/AMM/PIA-1, Pangasinan/PMA)
