Following Mr. Sulardiyono remark, the Vice Dean of Academic, Research, and Student Affairs FEB UNS, Prof. Dr. Izza Mafruhah, SE, M.Si., at the beginning of her virtual speech representing the Dean, welcoming Al-Azhar 8 Islamic High School’s leaders, teachers, and students through Zoom Cloud Meeting.

In front of more than 200 Al-Azhar 8 Islamic High School students who attended the visit virtually, Prof. Izza also conveyed a trick to achieve students’ target, namely SMART. This SMART method is not only meant smart in a literal way, but also stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time Bounded. “To achieve a target, we must be specific in determining the study program we are going to. We must also be able to measure our own abilities, measurable. Achievable refers to setting an achievable target, do not dream too high. Your target must be reasonable considering your ability. Realistic means that the target we set must be adjusted to the provisions we have. Lastly, a target must be time-bounded, referring to a specific time period. When we have about 3 or 4 months left to compete in a university admission selection, we have to increase our study time and reduce playtime. With SMART’s, we will be able to determine what targets to achieve,” she explained.
Meanwhile, Yaman Umaran, S.Si., from UPT SPMB UNS, detailed the stages of choosing the right State Universities (PTN), admission channels, opportunities, and strategies for the PTN admission test. Briefly, Yaman conveyed three strategies that students must prepare to get enrolled in PTN, namely, determining the field of study they are interested in, choosing a reputable university that supports success, and preparing themselves seriously in participating in the selection to enter PTN.
