Jayapura, Jubi – Head of Papua Education and Culture Office, Elias Wonda said based on their field monitoring the first day of National Examination for General and Vocational High School in Papua was running well.
“We conducted monitoring to several high schools, in particular those who applied the Computer Based Test system, and concluded it was running well. We’re just waiting for the monitoring report from several regencies,” Elias Wonda said on Monday (12/4/2015) in Jayapura.
According to him, Papua has 5,270 CBT participants, which put in the second place for having the highest CBT participants among other provinces.
“The number of students participated in the CBT system in Papua defeated DKI Jakarta which only has 4,080 participants. Hopefully it would be running well for today and tomorrow,” he said.
He admitted although the electricity was off for couple of minutes during the examination in SMKN I Jayapura (Vocational School), it didn’t impact its implantation. “The students are motivated. Hopefully they will pass the exam through this CBT system. Because some of them could complete the exam before the time was over,” he said.
Related to the electricity, he expected the Electricity State Company (PLN) for Papua, West Papua and Maluku Region to guarantee the power supplies during the National Examination.
“The minister has instructed to PLN for not drop off the electricity during the National Examination included in Jayapura City,” said Wonda.
Separately, a final grade student, Fernando said the examination was running smoothly in his school and each student could complete it very well.
“Today it was running safe and smooth. But we are just worried about the power outage during the examination, hopefully PLN could anticipate it,” Fernando said. (Alexander Loen/rom)
