Challenged Student in SNMPTN Quota
A challenged student from SMAN 8 Surabaya and SMAN 10 Surabaya deserved to be proud of themselves as they were included in SNMPTN quota this year. The data of SMAN 10 Surabaya showed that its challenged students (inclusion class) have registered to state to university even in the previous years. Last year, they were admitted in various universities in Indonesia such as UNAIR, UNESA, UI, ITB and Ubaya.
Meanwhile, schools’ officials were monitoring their students’ admissions. They made sure that the registration has been finalized by the committee; they also helped the students to map their competences in order to determine their majors. The headmaster of SMAN 1 Surabaya, Johannes Mardjiono, suggested if there is tight competition at school, students were expected to choose different programs or universities. But, he gave students freedom to choose their majors based on their interests.
