INDUSTRY.co.id - Minister of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reforms Tjahjo Kumolo has issued Decisionof Minister of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reforms on Passing Score of Basic Competency Test (SKD) for Civil Servant Candidates of the 2021 Fiscal Year to ensure that the candidates meet the required competency standard.

According to the Ministry’s Acting Assistant Deputy for Planning and Procurement of Apparatus Human Resources Katmoko Ari Sambodo, participants who apply for general need vacant posts must meet the passing score of 65 for Civic Knowledge Test (TWK), 80 for General Intelligence Test (TIU), and 166 for Personal Characteristics Test (TKP), higher than that of the previous passing score at 126.

Ari also revealed that the change in the passing score was made due to the additional total question in Personal Characteristics Test from 35 questions to 45 questions.

In the meantime, the total number of questions for Civic Knowledge Test remain the same as that in the previous period of 30 questions and General Intelligence Test of 35 questions.

“For that reason, we have increased the passing score. However, there is a slight increase in proportion due to 10 additional questions,” Ari said, as quoted from the Ministry’s website, Friday (30/7).

Ari went on to say that the passing score will be excluded for participants who apply for special need vacant posts.

For persons with disabilities and participants from Papua and West Papua provinces, they must achieve a minimum cumulative passing score for Basic Competency Test at least 286, while a minimum passing score for General Intelligence Test at 60.

Exceptions to minimum passing score are also granted for certain positions in the determination of general needs.

The minimum cumulative passing score for Basic Competency Test should be at 311 and a minimum passing score for General Intelligence Test at 80 for doctor, specialist, dentist, specialist dentist, and clinical educator positions.

For other positions such as ship crew member, rescuer, and volcano observer, a minimum cumulative passing score for Basic Competency Test should be at 286, while a minimum passing score for General Intelligence Test at 70.

Regarding weighted scores, Civic Knowledge Test and General Intelligence Test carries the value of 5 for each correct answer and wrong answer/no answer carries the value of 0.

There are five levels of weighting score for Personal Characteristics Test, the most appropriate answer has score5, the lowest score is one, and no answer has zero.

Ari also underscored that Basic Competency Test will be carried out in a duration of 100 minutes. However, the test for participants with blind sensory disabilities will be carried out in 130 minutes.

“The additional 130-minute test time does not apply to participants who suffer from color blindness or low vision,” he said.

For the record, the implementation of Basic Competency Test is based on a Computer Assisted Test (CAT). The 2021 Basic Competency Test consists of Civic Knowledge Test, General Intelligence Test, and Personal Characteristics Test.

Civic Knowledge Test aims to assess the mastery of knowledge and ability to implement nationalism, integrity, state defense, the pillars of the state, and the Indonesian language.

The questions tested related to verbal skills include analogy, syllogism, and analysis. Numerical skills will test those related to counting, number series, quantitative comparisons, and story questions. Meanwhile, for figural abilities, participants will be given problems related to analogies, inequalities and serials.

In addition, Personal Characteristics Test is intended to assess the mastery of knowledge and ability to implement public services, networking, social culture, information and communication technology, professionalism, as well as anti-radicalism.
