ONLY 419 of the 1,253 examinees who took the recent Philippine National Police promotional examinations for Inspector and Superintendent categories passed, according to the National Police Commission.

NAPOLCOM Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer Atty. Rogelio T. Casurao, in a statement released to the media, said the number of passers represents a total 33.44 percent. He that this percentage is 6.41 percent lower compared to the number of passers who took the promotional test last April.

The low passing rate in both exam categories 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 most qualified PNP personnel are promoted in the police service, Casurao explained.

In a further breakdown of the numbers, Casurao said the passing percentage rate for the Inspector Exam is 35.81 percent (376 of 1,050 examinees) while for the Superintendent Exam is 21.18 percent (43 of 203 examinees).

The list of successful examinees is now posted at the 7th Floor, NAPOLCOM Central Office located at the DILG-NAPOLCOM Center, NAPOLCOM Bldg., EDSA Corner Quezon Avenue, West Triangle, Quezon City and in all 17 NAPOLCOM Regional Offices, and can be viewed at the NAPOLCOM website at

Individual report 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.

The Commission earlier released on January 15, 2018 the list of successful examinees in the PNP Entrance and Promotional Examinations (Police Officer and Senior Police Officer categories).
