Jakarta. Hundreds of students have taken the entrance test for state universities, or SBMPTN, while wearing face masks and plastic gloves at the State Senior High School 3 Jakarta in South Jakarta on July 5-14, as a precaution against the Covid-19.
The Education Ministry earlier decided to move forward with a plan to conduct the entrance test amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The test committee implemented a very strict health protocol to prevent transmission of the disease. Test participants had to wash their hands and sterilize their bodies inside a disinfectant chamber before entering the classroom. Each person including teachers and supervisors were also required to wear a mask, face shields, and gloves.
