A total of 3,742 or 11.37% passed the Philippine National Police (PNP) Entrance Examination while 4,410 or 34.99% hurdled the PNP Promotional Examinations conducted by the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) on October 21, 2018 in designated schools in Metro Manila and other testing centers nationwide.
This was announced by NAPOLCOM Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer Atty. Rogelio T. Casurao as the Commission released the list of successful examinees in both examinations categories.
Out of the 32,912 civilian examinees who took the PNP Entrance Examination, a requirement for initial appointment to the rank of Police Officer 1 (PO1), only 3,742 (11.37%) passed the test. On the other hand, only 4,410 (34.99%) of the 12,602 police examinees who took the promotional tests successfully passed, with 1,826 in the Police Officer Exam; 2,189 in the Senior Police Officer Exam; 312 in the Inspector Exam; and, 83 in the Superintendent Exam.
“The immediate release of the results of police exams is in consonance with the Commission’s commitment with the PNP and the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) to make the examination results in sync with the police recruitment process,” Atty. Casurao said.
Vice-Chairman Casurao reiterates the Commission’s earlier warning for applicants of the PNP Entrance and Promotional Examinations not to commit any form of examination irregularity, such as cheating, impersonation, perjury or violation of examination rules, since the NAPOLCOM has a computer system that keeps track of the answer patterns of examinees.
The list of successful examinees can be viewed at the NAPOLCOM website at http://www.napolcom.gov.ph. Individual reports of rating will be mailed to all examinees. Verification of test results will be entertained at the NAPOLCOM central and regional offices within the month.
