“In 2022, we have three selection schemes, namely, the SNMPTN, SBMPTN, and SM,” explained Prof. Jamal.

Through this dissemination, Prof. Jamal wishes to provide information to teachers and students regarding the new students’ admission schemes available at UNS. “Hopefully, the 12th graders and those who graduated two years ago can participate in the entrance selections we have provided,” added Prof. Jamal.

The LTMPT Executive Director, Prof. Dr. Ir.

The eligible school must submit students’ score data into the PDSS. LTMPT will retrieve this data without making any amendments or transformations to the data.

Regarding the Computer-Based Written Examination (UTBK), the 2022 written test section will follow a similar procedure to the previous year. However, there are differences in the material section. The exam material in 2022 will include an additional English exam that has separated scoring. “Thus, compared to last year, there will be additional English tests, yet there is no English test last year,” said Prof. Budi.
