Another Bidikmisi Story, Best Friends Graduated with Identical Grade

What could happen when two friends are so united in carrying out their activities? Ririn Susanti and Nurul Rusmavita, these two women were brought together since their first semester of studying at FE UNY, specifically the bachelor of accounting education. Their friendship led them to assignments, organizational meetings, and competitions in various regions.

They have shown high motivation to study before they became students. Nurul, a graduate of SMK N 1 Depok, Sleman, got a score of 10 in Mathematics in the Vocational National Examination. Meanwhile, Ririn, although she had to work for one year after graduated from Vocational High School, but her experience when participating in the Accounting Competition (LCCA) and her work as an accounting staff made this graduate of SMK N 1 Godean still motivated to prepare for the Joint Entrance Test for State Universities (SBMPTN) the following year.

Both of them have the same challenges when they want to continue their education. Ririn's father is only a farm laborer, while Nurul's father earns a living as a construction worker. Both pairs of parents had doubts that their children could continue their studies. But thanks to Bidikmisi, both of them could be accepted into the Accounting Education Study Program, FE UNY.Nurul Rusmavita

Ririn and Nurul met at UNY before they became students at FE UNY. When they were still in Vocational High School (SMK), they met several times in accounting competitions. Being in the same class, the brainy duo then formed a friendship. They both joined the Accounting Education Students Association (Hima Diksi).

Ririn said that when they became a competition committee at FE UNY, they received information that there was a competition on another campus. They took part in the competition as a team with the aim of only promoting the competition that they held themselves to other participants on the campus. Since then, they have achieved at least five achievements in various national accounting competitions during 3 years working together as a team.

The surprise emerged at the end of the study when they graduated simultaneously in the period of June 2021, with the exact same grade, which was 3.93. In response to this, both Nurul and Ririn said they were surprised. Ririn believes, this achievement is certainly God's Will. "If we find the right people to collaborate at the right time, it might lead to the right results," she said. (fdhl)
