Application for 2013 PMA exam
The Philippine Military Academy will be conducting the PMA Entrance Examination (PMAEE) on August 25, 2013 in thirty-seven (37) examination centers all through-out the country. The PMA Entrance Exam is the first stage in the selection process for cadetship in the premier leadership training school in the country.

The applicants must pass the PMA Cadet Qualification Test (PMACQT) which covers Algebra and Geometry, Grammar and Composition, Reading and Comprehension, Verbal and Numerical Reasoning and Pattern Analysis before they will be able to proceed to the next phase of cadet selection which is the Complete Physical Examination (CPE). In the said phase they will undergo medical and physical fitness test to comply with the requirements for the military training they will undergo in the Academy.
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). PMA advocates “Zero Tolerance to Maltreatment”. The Academy is aggressively implementing a “NO-MALTREATMENT POLICY” among the cadets. PMA adheres to the respect of human rights, and observance of the principles of International Humanitarian Law and the rule of law.
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.
