43 Indonesian students pass the mute exam in Lombok
JAKARTA: Forty-three Indonesian students participated in the Malaysian University English Test (Muet) in order to obtain a “ticket” to continue their higher education in Malaysia.
The exam was held in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara from August 3-6 by Education Malaysia Indonesia (EMI) and the Malaysian Examinations Council (MPM).
The Counselor (Education) of the Malaysian Embassy in Jakarta, Mohd Mubarak Shamsuddin, said it was the second time he was held in Lombok after the first time in July 2019, at a fee of two million rupees or 600 RM.
“The hope of EMI and MPM is that Mute continues to be well received here and can be continued from time to time in other regions depending on demand,” he said.
Mute is similar to the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam for universities in Malaysia and also for most universities in Singapore.
Mohd Mubarak said Malaysia continues to be the choice for students from all over the world, including Indonesia, to pursue their higher education.
“This is proven by the presence of 170,000 foreign students in Malaysia from more than 160 countries around the world including 11,000 from Indonesia,” said Mohd Mubarak. – Bernama
