PMA sets entrance examination Sunday
Manila Bulletin - Friday, August 27


The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) announced that 14,467 youths hoping to enter the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) will take the entrance examination to be held simultaneously at 35 examination centers nationwide on Sunday, Aug. 29. Lt. Col. Arnulfo Burgos, AFP public affairs chief, said the examinees are 4,139 more than last year's number of applicants. According to Burgos, the PMA accepted 13,324 online applicants and 1,143 walk-in applicants for this year. The PMA is the country's premier training ground for the future military officers and leaders of the AFP. The admission office requires that all applicants must be a natural-born Filipino citizen, physically fit, and have never been married. Further, applicants must at least be 17 years old but not a day older than 22 years on April 1, 2011; a high school graduate with a grade point average of 85% or higher, and a minimum of 5'4" tall for males and 5'2" tall for the females. Applicants are advised to review and prepare for the examination which will cover Algebra and Geometry, Grammar and Composition, Reading and Comprehension, Verbal and Numerical Reasoning and Pattern Analysis. "Once an applicant passed, he or she is expected to report to the PMA on April 1, 2011," said Burgos, adding, "Once they graduate from the PMA, cadets will be conferred with a degree of Bachelor of Science and will hold the rank of a 2nd Lieutenant."

More RP youth attracted to join military service

More youths are now attracted to join the military service – as enlisted personnel or as future officers through the Philippine Military Academy (PMA), the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) said on Saturday.

AFP officials said this developed after this year’s PMA hopefuls who will take the entrance exams at 35 examination centers nationwide this Sunday reached 14,467 which is 4,139 higher compared to the number of those who applied in 2009.

Lt. Col. Arnulfo Burgos, AFP public affairs chief, said the PMA accepted 13,324 online applicants and 1,143 walk-in applicants for this year.

The PMA is the country’s premier training ground for the future military officers and leaders of the AFP.

The admission office requires that all applicants must be a natural-born Filipino citizen, physically fit, and have never been married.

Meanwhile, Maj. Harold Cabunoc, 9th Infantry Division (9ID) spokesman, said more youths in the Bicol Region are now also attracted to join the military service as indicated by the influx of young men who lined up for enlistment in the Army.

Brig. Gen. Celso Silvestre, 9ID assistant division commander, on the other hand, said that “due to the excellent performance of the Philippine Army in Bicol Region especially in its peace and development programs, thousands of young Bicolanos apply for enlistment every year.”

“We are very proud about this as the new trend in our recruitment efforts.The 9th Infantry Division is not short of applicants to fill its ranks as we carry out our difficult task of ending the Communist insurgency in the Bicol Region,” said Silvestre, who spoke during a recent closing ceremony of the Basic Military Training for new recruits in the region.

Cabunoc said 350 candidate-soldiers successfully hurdled the three-month long rigorous military training and took an oath as a member of the AFP with the rank of Private.

The newly enlisted soldiers will be given additional military training which will take at least two months.

“These soldiers will be trained on counter-guerrilla operations as well as in performing non-traditional military roles such as disaster response operations,” said Silvestre.

The AFP officials noted some of the new recruits said it is their childhood dream to become a soldier believing that they can make a difference by serving the country as a Filipino soldier.
