Depok-Two students from the Universitas Indonesia (UI) won the First Best Student title in the Regional Level Most Outstanding Student Selection (Pilmapres) within the Higher Education Service Institutions (LLDikti) Region III DKI Jakarta in 2023. Shakira Amirah, a student at the Faculty of Medicine (FK) UI, became the First Best Student at the Undergraduate Level, while Putri Anindya Ravinta, a student at the UI Vocational Education Program, became the First Best Student at the Vocational Level.

The awards won by the two were announced at the 2023 Regional Level Most Outstanding Student Award Ceremony in LLDikti Region III DKI Jakarta which was held in the 3rd Floor Hall, Prasetya Mulia University, Cilandak Campus, May 9, 2023. On that occasion, the Head of Region III Higher Education Services, Dr. Ir. Paristiyanti Nurwardani, M.P., said that later the winner would represent LLDIKTI Region III in the National Level Most Outstanding Student selection.

Shakira and Putri were selected as the best students after going through a rigorous selection process. The Pilmapres assessment component includes a portfolio of excellent achievements, creative idea scripts for the Undergraduate Program, innovative product scripts for the Diploma Program, and English proficiency. Both of them managed to beat 18 other finalists, namely 11 finalists for the undergraduate level and 7 for the vocational level.

Meanwhile, Putri managed to beat the finalist at the vocational level, namely Moch. Ismail Gading Pambudi (Universitas Negeri Jakarta), Mahessea Wira Madha (Universitas Pembangunan Nasional Veteran Jakarta), Michael Natanael (Politeknik Negeri Jakarta), Rifqi Herdandi (Politeknik Negeri Media Kreatif), Oktaviani (Universitas Trisakti), Abdul Rozak Maulana (Universitas Esa Unggul), and Ayu Ajeng Pratiwi (Sekolah Tinggi Pariwisata Trisakti).

Both wins were recognized by the judges with the highest score. The jury involved in the event included Prof. Teddy Mantoro from Universitas Sampoerna; Dr, Tipri Rose Kartika, S.E., M.M. from the Politeknik Negeri Media Kreatif Jakarta; Dr. Wahyu Hari Haji from Universitas Bina Nusantara; Prof. Dr. Suswandari, M.Pd. from Universitas Muhammadiyah Prof. Dr. Hamka; Dora Angelina Aruan, S.Pd., M.Hum. from Universitas Katolik Atma Jaya; and Dr. rer. pol. Ied Veda R Sitepu from the Universitas Kristen Indonesia.

According to Prof. Teddy as a representative of the Judge, in the largest circle in this competence, there is an ethic to respect others and oneself, as well as knowledge and skills. “This needs to be fixed. With sufficient knowledge, when there is a strong problem, we can produce an implementable solution. Besides that, to become an outstanding student, there are three important points that must be considered, namely foundation, consolidation, and impression,” said Prof. Teddy.

Shakira said FKUI lecturers and friends from Mapres UI also provided assistance and encouragement. “Don’t forget my parents and sister who always pray for me,” she said. In line with what Shakira said, Putri said that proper preparation was needed to take part in the Pilmapres series. Participants must understand the design of innovative products to be presented. Presentation exercises are repeatedly carried out to correct weaknesses and hone speaking skills. In addition, time management and mentality must also be considered during the Pilmapres process.

“After this Pilmapres event, I hope to continue to develop my potential, both in the academic and non-academic fields. I will also use my abilities to contribute to the surrounding community,” said Putri.
