*Just a gentle reminder, this application process is only for you to be included in the partial list of examinees who will take the PNPA CAT (Cadet Admission Test).
**the dead line of submission of application is normally the 30th of september each year, While the examination date is normally the last sundays of October
3. Take the admission exam.
It is common for each applicant to receive a notice of examination sent by the PNPA registrar. Without such document, you will not be allowed to take the exams.
However, there are several cases that the applicants did not receive their notices.
Some only knew about it too late that they were not able to take the exams.
To avoid this and if you are sure that you have sent your application on time, you may still proceed to the designated testcenter of you region or where you applied and look for the chairman of the examination board and verify if your name is included in the final list of applicants.
examination period usually starts 7.30am, however, be early as the cadet-proctors will do some basic test such as height and weight measurement to eliminate early on those who are disqualified.

**after the exam, wait for the results. This is normally released on the 3rd to 4th week of november. The list of successful examinees is posted in the PNPA Website, facebook pages and in this webblog.
4. Take the neuro exam.
Once the result of cadet admission test is out and you passed it, your next step is to take the neuro-psychological exam.
