In addition, he also considered the existence of a transit room as UB’s creativity in implementing CBWE. “Other centers are not necessarily able to provide similar facilities since they have to prepare a completely empty room to be used as transit,” explained the man who serves as a lecturer at the Bandung Institute of Technology.

Body checking before entering the exam room

According to Riza, the implementation of exams at UB is more conditioned. “Body checking at UB is also more serious, which I saw earlier at the Faculty of Medicine, they are very concerned about this things,” added Riza.

In addition to safety factor, he also sees the comfort factor as important. “We have to strike a balance between keeping the temperature of the device maintained, but also providing comfort for participants when taking the exam,” explained the 2024 SNBP Coordinator.

Overall, according to Riza, the implementation of CBWE in UB is the best. This is because there are many things to pay attention to, including security, smoothness and comfort for both participants and committee members.

This year, it is recorded that there are more than 20.000 participants who will come to UB to take part in CBWE. These participants will be spread across 16 points in various faculties, during 14 sessions held over one week. (VQ/ UB PR/ Trans. Iir)
