      If you can graduate in senior high before April 01, 2019, I think you will be allowed to take the exam this August 19 provided that you have all the qualifications listed in this article. You may call the Office of Admission on the numbers stated above for more information. Thank you.

        Sir, I have the same height issues. My height is 149 cm and will graduate from Grade 12 this coming April 29. Since I was little, this is the school I dreamed to enter. Is there any way to resolve this problem? A height waiver perhaps?

          Sir, how does a height of a person measure one’s dedication in studying? How does it affect the performance of someone who has the passion to prove oneself worthy in the academe of PMA?

          I have read somewhere that height waiver is no longer issued. But to be sure, you may call the Office of Cadet Admission on the numbers posted above.
