The Joint Selection of State Universities Admission (SBMPTN) through written examinations has shown various advantages and benefits, both for the national interest, PTN, and participants. For participants, the benefits of joint selection are that it is more efficient, inexpensive, and flexible with the existence of a cross-regional mechanism. This SBMPTN from year to year is always improved and developed in accordance with the times and technological advances. In 2016 the SBMPTN was also introduced using the Computer-Based Written Examination (UTBK).

The 2019 SBMPTN was a selection of new student admissions using only UTBK results or UTBK results and other criteria that are jointly determined by the state universities. UTBK can be followed by students graduating in 2017, 2018, and 2019 from secondary education (SMA/MA/SMK) and equivalent, as well as graduates of Package C in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Management and processing of data for the purpose of selecting the SBMPTN pathway is carried out by the University Admission Test Institute (LTMPT). LTMPT is the only institution that administers standardized higher education tests in Indonesia.
