Thousands sit for state university admission test

Some 390,000 high school graduates across the country sat for state university tests on Wednesday, competing for only 60,000 seats. Results for the tests to 57 universities are to be announced on Aug. 2. 

Those who are not accepted will seek places at private higher education institutions or will join the country's job seekers. 

Those who sat for the Wednesday tests made up barely 18 percent of the 2.2 million students who sat for high school national examinations, from which over 90 percent graduated. A total of 180,000 seats are available at state owned universities, but only 60,000 of them were offered through national selection qrtests. Five universities earlier had joint admission tests, saying these were better methods than the national entrance exams. 

Acceptance into state-owned universities is believed to be a ticket to the best paying jobs, although private institutions with better paid teaching staff have improved in the past years. 

As in previous years some students attempted to cheat, with police arresting five suspects in Medan, North Sumatra, following reports by supervisors. Two of the suspects were caught text messaging during examinations, reported. 

Security was tight in Kendari, Southeast Sulawesi, which has recently seen a number of student fights involving sharp weapons. 

However exams ran smoothly for the 6,000 participants, Antara reported. A number of students were late as they were caught in traffic caused by long queues for gasoline, resorting to using motorcycle taxis instead.
