Update on activation of 2013 Napolcom OLEASS

Applicants for the PNP entrance and promotional exams scheduled in April 2013 were supposed to get access to the On-Line Exam Application Scheduling System since February 1 but for an unknown reason, the activation of the OLEASS has been delayed.

Napolcom vice chairman and executive officer Eduardo Escueta earlier revealed that the period for online scheduling will be until February 13 while the physical filing of exam application is set from February 14 to March 16, 2013.

The commission’s web portal does not show any sign that it has been updated for the activation of the OLEASS. Thousands of applicants can’t do anything but express dismay, complain and criticize the agency online.

Per Napolcom’s policy, walk-in applicants who have not gone through the OLEASS will not be accepted during the actual filing. Applicants said they’re worried that slots for the exam will be limited.

There was word that the reason for the delay is the alleged postponement of the April exam due to the upcoming 2013 midterm elections in May. However, no relevant information or press release from Napolcom has officially come out and the report cannot be independently verified.

Update: The online application system is now available.
