The results of the Police Inspector and Police Superintendent exams will be available soon.


As quoted from Atty. Casurao,

The low passing rate in the entrance exam may be attributed to the Commission’s continuous upgrading of standards on its police examinations in line with its sustained effort to professionalize the PNP by ensuring that only the best and most qualified individuals are admitted in the police service.

The entrance and promotional exams are administered by the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) on April 23, 2017 at NAPOLCOM testing centers in the cities of Makati, San Fernando (La Union), Tuguegarao, Basco (Batanes), Angeles (Pampanga), Calamba, Bacoor, Palawan, Calapan, Sablayan (Occidental Mindoro), Romblon, Marinduque, Legazpi, Iloilo, Cebu, Tacloban, Calbayog (Samar), Pagadian, Zamboanga, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Koronadal, Baguio, Butuan, Cotabato (ARMM) and Bacolod.

The tests are qualifying examinations for the following PNP positions: Police Officer 1, Police Officers 2 and 3, Senior Police Officer (for SPO1 to SPO4); Police Inspector (for Inspector and Senior Inspector); and Police Superintendent (Chief Inspector and Superintendent).


According NAPOLCOM, notification of results for April 2017 NAPOLCOM Entrance and Promotional Exams will be posted at NAPOLCOM Central Office located at DILG-NAPOLCOM Center, NAPOLCOM Building, EDSA corner Quezon Avenue, West Triangle Quezon City 1104 or at NAPOLCOM official website.

A Report of Rating (RR) will be mailed to the examinee’s mailing address while verification can be made at Examination Division, Personnel and Administrative Service (PAS), NAPOLCOM central office.

Meanwhile, examinees who didn’t received RR can request certification from the same office upon payment of 150.00 pesos.


The three-hour PNP entrance examination covered topics from General Information (Philippine Constitution and History; Philippine Law and History; Criminal Justice Systems; Current Events; Social Awareness and Value Judgement), Verbal Reasoning (Vocabulary; Comprehension; Grammar), Quantitative Reasoning (Basic Concepts; Problem-Solving Skills) and Logical Reasoning (Verbal; Non-verbal).

According to Atty.
