UNAIR NEWS – As of Monday, January 18, the National University Admission Selection(SNMPTN)in 2016 commences. On that day, the headmasters can submit their schools and students’ database (PDSS). In this SNMPTN process, every school has been given different quotas to submit their students’ data.
Universitas Airlangga Rector Prof. Dr. Mohammad Nasih, SE., MT., Ak, in his statement to journalists at his office, stated that schools with Accreditation A will get 75% quota to submit their students for SNMPTN 2016.
“It means, if there are 100 students of class XII, then the schools with accreditation A can submit 75 students from their schools,” said UNAIR Rector.
Schools with Accreditation B will get 50% quota of their class XII students. Similarly for schools with accreditation C about 20%, and others accreditation get 10%.
Unlike SNMPTN, University Admission Joint Selection (SBMPTN) is conducted in two ways, computer based testing (CBT) and paper based testing (PBT). UNAIR Rector stated that the quota of CBT of SBMPTN is limited at 10,000 submissions.
“Why 10,000? We haven’t been able to manage the computerized equipments yet. Each university has limited numbers of computers,” Prof. Nasih said.
The regions for SBMPTN with CBT have not been determined because there are some things in need of evaluation. But regarding this, UNAIR is ready to assist 500 computers for SBMPTN with CBT.
UNAIR Admission Capacity
For S1 degree student admission in 2016, UNAIR has 5,200 seats capacity. Even though it is not certain number but in percentage, seat allocations for SNMPTN have been regulated nationally for all universities in the national selection. The SNMPTN quota was at least 40%, SBMPTN 30 % and independent admission at most 30% from each maximum capacity of the universities.
One new regulation of this student admission, different from the previous admissions, students with financial shortage can apply through independent admission but they will be charged tuition fee category one (I).
“It is also applied to students in 3T (Terluar, Terdepan, Tertinggal) areas. They may not focus at school because they have to help their parents and all. If they apply through SNMPTN, they will be eliminated because of inadequate achievement at school. Through SBMPTN, they will also be eliminated because the selection process is stricter,” Prof. Nasih said.
Thus, UNAIR Rector encouraged the headmasters to submit the financially inadequate students who have good academic or non academic potential in Bidikmisi scholarships, also in the independent admission.
Two years ago, appointed by the Ministry of Education and Cultures, UNAIR was tasked to start study program out of the domicile (PDD) at Banyuwangi Regency, which so far have four study programs, Accounting, Public health, Veterinary Medicine, and Fisheries and Marine. For this year admission, Prof. Nasih added, UNAIR PDD Banyuwangi only admit students through SBMPTN and independent admission.
“It is because the infrastructures, the capacity cannot be increased more than the previous year,” he said. (*)
