Registration for Computer-Based Writing Examination (UTBK) and Joint Test for State Universities Entrance (SBMPTN) will be closed on Saturday, June 20, 2020. This means that the registration time will soon end in a matter of days. Rector of Syiah Kuala University (Unsyiah), Prof. Dr. Ir. Samsul Rizal, M. Eng., IPU appealed to all participants who had registered to immediately finalize the data and print the examination card. However, before printing the card the participants are asked to ensure that the data filled in is correct and correct.
"Because if the card has been finalized and printed, the data cannot be changed anymore. Although participants re-register or pay back the registration fee. For this reason, caution is needed to avoid things that are detrimental to participants, "said Prof. Samsul, Monday (6/15/2020).
SBMPTN registration, which began on June 2, 2020, is considered valid if participants have finalized. Students who do not finalize are considered not yet or have not registered for the SBMPTN 2020.
He hoped, the remaining narrow registration time could be put to good use by participants, especially for those who had not registered at all. Rector also appealed for those who have not yet registered, to immediately log on the https://portal.ltmpt.ac.id page. Then choose the UTBK-SBMPTN registration menu and pay a registration fee of Rp150 thousand through Bank Mandiri, BNI, or BTN.
In this year, Unsyiah provides a quota of 45 percent of the total new student admission path. This means Unsyiah provides greater opportunities for participants to graduate than the SNMPTN and Mandiri pathways, which are only 25 and 30 percent.
"Unsyiah opens a bigger quota through SBMPTN compared to other reception lines. This is intended to open up greater opportunities for participants to be accepted on this campus, "continued Prof. Samsul.
He also added, Unsyiah this year is ready to become the location of the SBMPTN exam. It provided 22,200 test seats for participants divided into 30 test sessions. This amount is quite large in order to be able to accommodate many participants so that they do not have to choose test locations outside Aceh. Later, the test location was centered in a number of computer laboratories located in the campus environment.
Prof. Samsul also ensured Unsyiah would try to be a good test location for participants. He promised to provide comfort during the test, including electricity stability and the application of health protocols to provide comfort and safety.
It is scheduled that the UTBK will take place on July 5-12, 2020 and the announcement of the SBMPTN on July 25, 2020. (Humas Unsyiah / fer)
