75 Athletes Take Civil Service Exam
As many as 75 Indonesian athletes took competency test (SKD) by using Computer Assisted Test (CAT) system as a part of a civil servant recruitment process, at the National Civil Service Agency (BKN), Jakarta, Wednesday (28/11). The SKD is the second batch following the first batch which was held on 31 October in Cibubur.
Youth and Sports Ministry Secretary Gatot S. Dewa Broto who accompanied the athletes assserted that the 75 athletes cannot attend the first batch test because they participated in international competitions. Thus, the Government gives them another opportunity by holding the second batch.
Gatot also said that Athletes with International Achievements formation is a token of the Governments appreciation to the athletes who make our country proud and it can also be a motivation for the junior athletes and young generation.
For junior athletes and young generation, be internationally recognized athletes because the Government will ensure that your hard work pays off, Gatot said.
For the record, Athletes with International Achievements is one of civil servant special formations, yet those applying for this formation still need to follow the 2018 civil servant recruitment process in accordance with the Regulation of Minister of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform (Permenpan) Number 36 of 2018.
Tontowi Owi Ahmad, a badminton player who took the test said that he appreciated the Government for establishing a special formation for the athletes.
On that occasion, Owi admitted that he was nervous before the SKD because he practices badminton every day. I can operate the CAT system, but facing the test is harder than facing China mixed doubles badminton, he added.
Besides the SKD, the athletes must take another test in the 2018 civil servant recruitment process, namely the skill test (SKB) which includes interview and administration process. The two tests were held on the same day because the athletes must participate in various international competitions, so it will be hard to arrange the schedule if the tests are held in different time.
