She revealed that she had prepared for the UTBK exam for two months. After the UTBK implementation, she hopes to be accepted as one of the Undip students.
Similar like Annisa, another participant, Fara (graduate of SMA IT Bina Amal) said that when she first entered the room she felt anxious but after passing the exam she felt relieved.
“Now I am a bit relieved even though at first the feelings were mixed, but Alhamdulillah it can be handled well,” said Fara.
