On the most recent exams conducted by NAPOLCOM on October 2017, 5,236 out of 28,654 (18.27%) passed the entrance exams while 419 out of 1,253 (33.44%) hurdled the promotional tests.

On April 2017, 2,026 or 7.63% out of the 26,561 examinees passed the Philippine National Police (PNP) Entrance exams while  5,610 or 35.59% out of 15,763 combined examinees hurdled the promotional exams.
