Number of Test Participants of UMM New Students Phase I Increased in 2018
University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) conducted selection of New Student Admission (PMB) Phase 1 in 2018, Monday (14/5). A total of 2856 prospective students participated in written tests and interviews in UMM Campus III. The exam locations are spread out in Lecture Building (GKB) 1, 2, 3, 4 and General Administration Bureau Hall.
Head of Technical Implementation Unit (UPT) of PMB UMM, Saiman, said that at the reception of this first phase, the largest number of applicants were still in Faculty of Medicine. "Out of a total of 2,875 applicants at this stage, 1,119 prospective students apply for admission to the Faculty of Medicine," he said.
The number of applicants this year were increased by 4% when compared to last year in the same period of acceptance, ie 2,771 prospective students. Saiman also added that the enrollment interest is still quite large on five faculties, namely Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, Faculty of Economics and Business, Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Social and Political Sciences.
"Registrars this year are still dominated by East Java," he added.
UMM Rector, Fauzan said, although the number of applicants for Faculty of Medicine has increased, but no additional student quota has been received. "The quota for medicine does not increase, still the same as last year's 150 seats," he said.
To anticipate the fraud, UMM has alerted 50 police personnel from Malang City Police during the exam from 08.00-10.30. Physical examination when already in the room is also done as one of prevention efforts.
As for participants who are late, the committee has provided a special room to take the exam so as not to disturb other participants.
This year, UMM will receive 7,500 new students. The results of this stage selection will be announced on 18 May. For participants who pass can register from 18 to 23 May.
