In his socialization explanation, Dr. Ismaini Zain MSi, who was lined up as a guest speaker, explained the technical implementation of the 2023 SNPMB later. “In principle, the system for implementing the selection of new students is not much different from the previous year,” said the ITS Statistics Department lecturer.

Ismaini explained that the admission of new students this time could be through the National Selection Based on Achievement (SNBP), National Selection Based on Tests (SNBT), and Independent selection. For the acceptance quota, the SNBP line is set at a minimum of 20 percent, a minimum of 40 percent for SNBT, and a maximum of 30 percent for Mandiri. Except for PTN Legal Entities (PTN-BH), the SNBT quota is set at a minimum of 30 percent and a maximum of 50 percent for independent selection.

Furthermore, Ismaini explained in the SNBT line there are fundamental differences in the aspects tested. Literacy and logic are the main benchmarks in assessing the selection of new student admissions this year. “The types of literacy tests in Indonesian and English that will be tested at the SNBT this time are proposed with the hope that prospective students will be able to face problems in the future,” said Ismaini.

It also explained the filling system for the School and Student Data Base (PDSS) and the flow for SNBT and SNBP registration by first creating an account. Ismaini also explained the various requirements that students needed to fulfill, the time of implementation, and the provisions of each selection pathway.

Socialization participants were also allowed to ask questions and answer with the speakers. One of the questions arose from Aini from SMAN 2 Surabaya regarding the criteria for selecting students entitled to an eligible SNBP quota. “For the criteria for selecting students, our management team gives each school the freedom to select students,” Ismaini answered.

Specifically for ITS, ITS Director of Education Dr. Eng Siti Machmudah ST MEng explained the Academic Potential Test (TKA) material for the Independent selection route would be tested. At the same time, the SNBP and SNBT paths will follow a way that has been determined nationally. “In the coming year, there may also be several new departments that will be opened in certain pathways,” added the lecturer of the Chemical Engineering Department.
