utbkStarting in 2019, The Research, Technology and Higher Education Ministry have set a new regulation concerning the Joint Selection of State Universities Admission (SBMPTN). The UTBK took place from 13 April – 04 May 2019 for Batch 1 and Batch 2 on 11 May – 26 May 2019.

The Faculty of Engineering is one of the locations of the UTBK exam in UB. In the implementation of UTBK, FT provided 130 computers spread over five points; Civil Engineering Computer Lab, Computer Lab in Electrical engineering C Building, PWK Computer Lab, and Industrial Engineering in the Simulation Lab and Computer Lab.

Bagus Royan Mardiansyah, ST as IT Network administrator at FTUB, revealed that there were still obstacles during the process but still within reasonable limits.

“There is a laptop/PC error or the internet connection suddenly off, but it is still within reasonable limits and has been anticipated, so when it happens it can be handled immediately without taking any given time from the participants,” said Bagus who is also the staff of Administrator of Information Systems and Public Relations (PSIK) FTUB.

For information, UTBK is followed by students graduating in 2017, 2018, and 2019 from secondary education (SMA/MA/SMK) and equivalent, and graduates of Package C in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

UTBK uses exam questions designed according to academic rules to predict the success of prospective students in all study programs.

The UTBK executor was conducted by the Institution of University Entrance Exams (LTMPT). The advantage of implementing UTBK compared to the previous system is that the test can be done more than 1 (one) time (maximum two tests), and the test results are given individually 10 (ten) days after the test.

In addition, this system also provides opportunities for prospective students to take the test flexibly in choosing the time and location of the test. In total there are 20 sessions offered for all prospective students throughout Indonesia.

“Actually I’m a little bit nervous taking this computer based exam, but it’s good that I can choose when and where my exam as I please, and I will get my result immediately 10 days after the exam, it becomes more open,” said Sri Wahyuni, one of the participants from Nganjuk when questioned after the exam (25/May/2019).
