UNAIR NEWS – Registration procedures of State University Joint Entrance Test (SBMPTN) in 2018 can be viewed through a video available to download since 29 March. There are some differences with last year’s regulation. It was disclosed by Dr. Imron Mawardi as Secretary of Information and Public Relations Center (PIH) of Universitas Airlangga after attending a meeting with the central committee in Jakarta.
On Monday, April 2, Imron said that this year, the differences are in the naming of exams and registration period. If last year, added Imron, the exams of SBMPTN were divided into paper-based test (PBT) and computer based test (CBT). This year, SBMPTN’s exams are divided into Printed-Based Written Exam (UTBC) and Computer Based Written Exam (UTBK).
“This year there is a difference in the naming of SBMPTN exams,” he said.
The registration schedule is also different. Imron revealed that UTBK registration will begin on April 5. Meanwhile, for UTBC registration will be opened on April 18.
“Last year, the registration was the same. This year is distinguished, “he explained.
Regarding the schedule difference, Imron added that it was intended to provide access to participants who signed up for SNMPTN this year. They can have the same opportunity to register UTBK.
“If this UTBK is opened together with UTBC. It’s too bad for prospective students who are still waiting for SNMPTN results to be announced on April 17. Furthermore, participants who follow SNMPTN this year will also follow UAN, “added Imron.
