Ferdinand Fabella of Manila Standard Today reports that on Monday, October 8, the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) "announced that it had uncovered massive cheating in the Philippine Natiopnal Police (PNP) Entrance Examination held in April 2011." It turns out that "387 examinees produced the same pattern of answers in their test papers." There were 18,996 applicants who had taken taken the PNP exam on that date and a total of 1,643 passed. It was said to be "the lowest passing rate ever recorded by the Napolcom in recent years."

 

The report quoted NAPOLCOM Vice Chairman Eduardo Escueta, who said that they had already "invalidated the test results of the 387 passing examinees as they launched a full-scale investigation into the source of the possible ’leak’ of test answers." The report added that Escueta said he would "ask the PNP to terminate the 387 police applicants, who were already undergoing training" and also "ban them from ever taking a similar examination."

 

The report also noted: "While saying that the irregularity was still being investigated, Escueta pointed out that the examinees’ high percentage of similar wrong answers was regarded as prima facie evidence of the existence of examination cheating, in violation of Section 4 of Republic Act No. 9416, or  the Anti-Cheating Law of 2007."
