Indonesian students head abroad due to complicated domestic university entrance process
Indonesia may lose prospective students due to the timing of its state university entrance test.
“Universities abroad started entrance tests in November and December 2015, while Indonesia began the selection process for state university in February 2016,” said Technology, Research and Higher Education Minister Muhammad Nasir.
The minister added that many students are reluctant to participate in the state university entrance test (SNMPTN or SBMPTN) because they have already been accepted at universities abroad. The Jakarta Post
