On this occasion Prof. Rai conveyed that this activity was expected to be a forum for sharing knowledge and gaining new understanding for us together regarding the management system of the academic field and the mechanism for selecting new student admissions in 2023. Referring to Permendikbudristek No. 48 of 2022 concerning Admission of New Students there are three pathways namely the National Selection Based on Achievement (SNBP), the National Selection Based on Test (SNBT) pathway, and the Independent Selection pathway. This policy aims to link the transformations, changes, dynamics that have been developed through the Merdeka Learning policy from primary to secondary education with the transformations carried out in higher education and the Merdeka Campus.

This policy is also expected to encourage students in secondary education to study as a whole, focus on reasoning abilities, be more inclusive and more accommodating to the diversity of students, be more transparent, and be more integrated. Based on directions from the Inspectorate General of the Ministry of Education and Culture's Monev Team and the Deputy for Prevention and Monitoring of the Corruption Eradication Committee of the Republic of Indonesia who have conducted studies on the governance of the government system in an effort to prevent criminal acts of corruption in the campus environment.

"We hope that all of us can observe and participate in this activity as well as possible in order to gain comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the education management system and the pattern of new student admissions," said Prof. Rai.
