Participants Who Have Passed SNMPTN Cannot Register for the SBMPTN

[unpad.ac.id, 05/08/2019] The Universitas Padjadjaran Vice Rector for Academic and Student Affairs, Dr. Arry Bainus, M.A., reminded participants who had passed the SNMPTN to complete their administrative registration. Those who have passed the SNMPTN will not be able to register for the SBMPTN. The system will automatically block participants if discovered that they are attempting to register for the SBMPTN.

When met by the Unpad Public Communication Office in his office on Wednesday (8/5), Dr. Arry said that this policy is an agreement made between several Indonesian university rectors and the Higher Education Entrance Test Institute (LTMPT) as an independent institution that organizes university entrance examinations.

“Read the provisions clearly, the LTMPT has already stated [the conditions], which is backed by the decision of the Rectors from the Indonesian Higher Education Rector Council (MRPTNI),” he said.

Even so, some participants also took the Computer Based Writing Exam (UTBK). This is permitted under the condition that the UTBK value cannot be used as a basis for registering for the SBMPTN. “Even if the UTBK score is high and there is the potential for the participant to enter their desired study program, if they have passed the SNMPTN, then they must take the SNMPTN (option),” added Dr. Arry.

Therefore, continued Dr. Arry, participants are required to accept the results of the SNMPTN. If ignored, then the participant will not have another chance at the SBMPTN.

“In short, don’t waste your chances. Because the SNMPTN choice is a pertinent choice, too,” said Dr. Arry. *
