The registration for Joint Selection for Entry to State Universities (SBMPTN) 2013 is planned to be opened tomorrow (15/3). The Minister of Education and Culture, Muh Nuh, said that SBMPTN is different from the National Selection for Entry to State Universities (SNMPTN).
He said that SNMPTN is based on grades in report card, whereas SBMPTN is based on the mechanism of a written test. He also said that it makes sense if many students are not accepted through SNMPTN as the capacity is limited. But they should not be discouraged as there is still a chance for them to resort to the SBMPTN.
