The National Examinations for high schools and equivalent institutions, set to commence on 15 April, must be free of all forms of irregularities. This was particularly important given that the National Examinations provided one of the entry points to university through the National State University Selection Process (SNMPTN), in addition to report card scores.
This meant that the value of the National Examinations were recognized by the higher education sector as regards the education process in high schools and vocational schools. Consequently, said Minister of Education and Culture Mohammad Nuh, the National Examinations this time around needed to be free of all forms of irregularities.
