ITS Campus News – SNPMB Preparation Team held a Press Conference regarding the changes in the selection of new student admissions in 2023 which is now called The National Selection of New Student Admissions (SNPMB) in State University (PTN). The press conference which was held at Auditorium D Building, 2nd floor of the Ministry of Education and Culture Jakarta on Thursday (1/12), reviewed some system changes and the latest information regarding the upcoming PTN admissions.
The General Chairman of SNPMB for the Responsible Team, Prof Dr Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng, said the system that will take effect in 2023 is not much different from the system that has been implemented in the previous years. “The substance remains the same, the only difference is the adjustment of the system so that the selection process can be more inclusive and increased,” said The Rector of Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS).
Furthermore, Ashari also explained, there is only the change in name towards PTN selection route that will take effect such as The National Selection Based on Achievements (SNBP) for the invitation route and The National Selection Based on Tests (SNBT) for the written test. “The independent exams for each university will still be enforced, but they must be transparent and refer to the SNBT values,” he stressed.
It was also explained that prospective new students would rather have the right to choose two study programs from two different universities or the same university. In addition, prospective new students also have the right to choose cross study majors, but taking into account the requirements and policies applied in each university.
The Electrical Engineering professor of ITS revealed that the subtest applied to the SNBT has undergone a reconstruction. If the previous one it was consisted of a Scholastic Potential Test (TPS) and an Academic Ability Test (TKA), now it will be developed into TPS, Indonesian Literacy, English Literacy, and Mathematical Reasoning. This reconstruction, which was carried out by eliminating TKA, brings forth to seven new subtests.
In addition to changes of the tested subtests, a new innovation that was born by The Educational Testing Management Center (BP3) in lieu of the Higher Education Entrance Test Institute (LTMPT) for PTN admission 2023 is to add Diploma III (D3) as a new option. So that the majors that can be chosen by prospective new students are increasingly varied from Diploma III (D3), Applied Bachelor (D4), to Bachelor (S1) levels.
Furthermore, Ashari explained that the mechanism applied to SNPMB 2023 had no significant differences, starting from the socialization of PDSS in December 2022 until the announcement of SNBT in March 2023. Ashari and all SNPMB organizers expect that the changes pf the system can be more effective and accommodate prospective new students to determine their future based on their personal interests and talents.
