LESS than 20 percent of all who took the Philippine National Police Entrance and Promotional Examination for 2017 passed.

According to the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM), a total of 5,236 or 18.27% out of the 28,654 examinees passed the PNP-EPE conducted by the commission on October 22, 2017 in designated schools in Metro Manila and other testing centers nationwide.

NAPOLCOM Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer Atty. Rogelio T. Casurao said the Commission already released a partial list of successful examinees in the PNP-EPE for Police Officer (PO) and Senior Police Officer (SPO) categories.

Casurao added that out of the 5,196 who took the PO Exam, 2,545 (48.98%) passed while 2,427 (34.45%) out of the 7,045 examinees hurdled the SPO Exam. The results of the Police Inspector and Police Superintendent exam categories shall be released soon.

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,” Casurao said.

At the same time, 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.

Casurao said that the list of successful examinees will be posted at the NAPOLCOM central office located at the DILG-NAPOLCOM Cente Building, Edsa Corner Quezon Avenue, Barangay West Triangle, Quezon City. The results can also be viewed at the NAPOLCOM website at

Individual reports of rating will be mailed to all examinees. Verification of test results is being entertained at the NAPOLCOM central office and its regional offices nationwide.
