We are providing you with the PMA long course initial test preparation online. The initial test means that the test is taken at your nearest Pakistan Army Selection and Recruitment Center (AS&RC). First of all your eligibility will be checked out for your qualifications, age, and physical standards. One who passes the eligibility and physical test then he is called for the online computer-based written/intelligence test. The written/intelligence test is based on three sections; verbal-intelligence test, non-verbal intelligence test, and general knowledge test. Each of these sections has its further headings which are described below. When a candidate passes all these tests at his nearest AS&RC, then he has to pass through the final selection which is held at the Inter Service Selection Board (ISSB test). ISSB took the medical checkup, personality analysis, and some other tests which I have discussed in the other post. It is because we are talking about the PMA long course initial test preparation online so that is why we are giving a brief introduction about how to prepare for this test for guaranteed success.
