Ujian Nasional tingkat SMA-SMK serentak dimulai hari ini (13/4). Guna memantau aktifitas tersebut,  Wali Kota Rukmini sidak ke SMKN 4 Kota Probolinggo didampingi Sekda Johny Hariyanto, Kadispendik Zainullah dan sejumlah kepala satuan kerja. Pasalnya, Rukmini ingin menyaksikan langsung proses ujian yang tengah berlangsung tiga hari ke depan.

National exam for High School has been started today (13/4). In order to observe the exam, Mayor Rukmini did an unannounced inspection to SMKN 4 of Probolinggo City, accompanied by Regional Secretary Johny Hariyanto, the Head for Education Agency Zainullah, and several head of agencies. It was implemented since Rukmini has an intention to watch herself the process of the exam.

 “Meskipun unas tak lagi jadi prioritas, anak-anak masih tegang. Mungkin karena mereka belum tahu soalnya,” tutur Rukmini. Seperti diketahui, unas tak lagi menjadi tolok ukur kelulusan siswa. Sesuai dengan Permendikbud No 144/2014 tentang Kriteria Kelulusan Peserta Didik Dari Satuan Pendidikan Dan Penyelenggaraan Ujian Sekolah/Madrasah/Pendidikan Kesetaraan dan Ujian Nasional, dijelaskan kriteria kelulusan bagi peserta didik tahun ini lebih berimbang antara ujian sekolah maupun ujian nasionalnya.

“Although the exam is no longer being a priority, the students were still nervous. It might be because they haven’t known the exam questions,” said Rukmini. As is known, national exam is no longer being the one and only assessment to graduate as it was. Based on the Regulation of Education and Culture Ministry No. 144 of 2014 on National Examination and the Graduation Requirements, it is stated that this year, the graduation criteria for the students is based on the school exam and national exam.

Singkatnya, jika ingin lulus, mereka harus menyelesaikan seluruh program pembelajaran, memperoleh nilai minimal baik, lulus ujian sekolah dan ujian nasional. Dalam hal ini, sekolah yang menentukan apakah siswanya bisa lulus atau tidak. Tahun ini, unas hanya menjadi pemetaan pemerataan kualitas pendidikan nasional.

Briefly speaking, if they want to graduate, they have to finish all educational programs in their school, to have minimal “good” grade, to pass the school exam and national exam. In this case, it is the school’s authority to determine whether the student is graduated or not. This year, national exam is just being a mapping to implement the equalization of national education quality.

Kepala Sekolah SMKN 4 Suryono menyatakan bahwa sebelum unas, para siswa telah mengikuti berbagai metode latihan pembelajaran. “Kami sudah memberikan kisi-kisi soal yang mungkin keluar di unas nanti. Selain itu mereka juga telah mengikuti berbagai try outuntuk lebih mempersiapkan diri,” jelasnya. Sebanyak 204 siswa mengikuti ujian nasional di SMKN 4. 187 siswa merupakan siswa SMKN 4 dan sisanya siswa gabungan dari SMK Mutho’alimin. (fien)

Besides, they have implemented some try out to be well prepared,” he explained. As many as 204 students take the national exam in SMKN 4. 187 are the students of SMKN 4 and the rest are the students of SMK Mutho’alimin.
