      1. PMA: At least 17 but not older than 22 years old on April 1, 2020

        Technically, you're still 22 years old and there's should be no issue. But it is better to clarify directly from PMA:

        For more details, applicants may call the Office of the Cadet Admission at (074) 442–5520, (0906) 546 6989(Globe), (0919) 068 0877 or (0919) 068 8078 (Smart).
