From the total of 5.619 student candidates at University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) who registered through invitation line only 1.808 candidates are accepted. They were who selected from academic achievement or extracurricular. Now all candidates who accepted just wait for interview test and re-registration.
It was stated by Vice rector I UMM, Prof Dr Bambang Widagdo, MM, when observing entrance test to UMM for 1st cohort, Monday (11/5). From the total of 4.302 candidates followed test at GKB I and GKB II to compete a place as UMM student.
“Totally, who already registered up to this 1st cohort reached 9.921 people,” said Bambang. This number increased more than double in the same period last year.
He said, for those who accepted in invitation line were very lucky because in addition to not have to follow written selection, also obtained a scholarship in the form of tuition discount. It was to attract earlier the candidate of student who has achievement in their school.
The registrants in invitation line and at 1st cohort are believed as student candidate who really determined to make UMM as the main choice. This is because they registered before attending National Test and obtaining announcement from the result of test at PTN. “This is an advantage for UMM because can select the best candidates and earlier. Therefore, the percentage who is accepted in this cohort will be greater than in 2nd and 3rd cohort,” said Bambang.
UMM will open registration for 2nd cohort on May 14 up to August 1. While cohort III will be opened on 6 to 29 of August this year. “The total who are to be accepted not far from last year, it is around 7000 students,” said Bambang. (zul/nas/t_zuh)
