December 2023 NAPOLCOM Exam Application Guide Using NOSS

Civilians and PNP personnel who wish to take future PNP entrance and promotional examinations must now register on the new NAPOLCOM Online Scheduling System (NOSS).

According to NAPOLCOM, the NOSS is a simplified online system for the initial processing of the qualifications and requirements of applicants prior to the submission of applications of qualified applicants to the regional offices.

The PNP Entrance Examination is open to all Filipino citizens who are 21–30 years old with a bachelor’s degree. NAPOLCOM gives those who pass this test the PNP Entrance Eligibility. This allows them to be hired as a patrolman or patrolwoman, as required by Section 30 of RA 6975 as amended by RA 8551.

On the other hand, only qualified uniformed PNP members can take the Promotional Examinations. They must meet the minimum requirements regarding rank and eligibility to take the examination.

NAPOLCOM Exam Schedule

The NAPOLCOM will administer the PNP Entrance Exam and the PNP Promotional Exam on December 10, 2023. Applicants must register and apply using NOSS, which will be available for registration and acceptance from November 7 to November 17, 2023 only.
