Ketua Pelaksana LTMPT Budi P. Widyobroto menyebutkan, jenis soal bahasa Inggris yang diujikan adalah seperti yang diajarkan di sekolah. Hal ini disampaikannya dalam Sosialisasi PDSS, SNMPTN, dan SBMPTN 2022 pada Jumat (24/12/2021) lalu.
"Kita itu basisnya adalah basis Bahasa Inggris yang diajarkan di SLTA, jadi bukan TOEFL dan yang lain-lain," jelas Budi.
Tes kemampuan bahasa Inggris menjadi materi tes kebaruan dalam UTBK-SBMPTN yang sebelumnya hanya mengujikan tes potensi skolastik (TPS) dan tes kemampuan akademik (TKA). Penambahan materi tes pada tahun ini dilatarbelakangi faktor kebutuhan kemampuan berbahasa Inggris dalam perkuliahan.
"Ada tambahan di bahasa Inggris karena keputusan para rektor itu semua setuju dan semua menganggap perlu bahwa bahasa Inggris ini. Karena sekali lagi bahasa Inggris sangat diperlukan untuk mendukung proses pembelajaran di PT," kata Budi.

Contoh Soal UTBK-SBMPTN Bahasa Inggris dan Jawabannya
In the 1930s, Chester F. Carlson was working in the patents department of a large electronics firm in New York City. One of the major problems in his work was the length of time and expense involved in getting patents copied, patents were lengthy legal documents, and the only ways to get them copied were to take them to a typist or to take them to a photographer. Either way of copying patents took a lot of time and cost a lot of money. He came up with the idea for a machine that would copy documents quickly and efficiently. He researched the idea in the library and then worked over a three-year period on developing a machine that used a light, an electro statically charged plate, and powder to duplicate images on paper. The result of this work was a machine that produced the first xerographic copy on October 22, 1938. He named the process "Xerox", which means "dry writing". Carlson felt that he had a good idea, one that would be extremely helpful in the business world. He tried to sell his idea to a number of large corporations, but they were not terribly interested in his machine. A few years later he sold the process to a small family-owned company. This small company grew into the giant Xerox Corporation, and both Carlson and Xerox became rather wealthy in the process.

Although photography was first made public in 1839, the theory behind the principles of the medium begins with Aristotle's description of how light waves behave when projected through a small aperture. This is fundamentally the description of how a lens or camera's aperture operetes when it projects an image onto the film at the back of a camera. In the Middle Ages, Alhazen and 5 Francis Bacon extended the principle to include a large, carkened room with a small opening in one wall. In the 15 to 18" centuries this camera obscura, as it came to be called, was reduced in size and made convenient for artist to use in tracing scenic design and architectural perspective.
The chemical principles basic to photography were also described well before photography was "invented". Johann Schulze, in 1727, demonstrated that silver salts turned dark when exposed to 10 light. Carl W. Scheele, in 1777, showed that ammonia retarded the effects of light and he indicated a possible way of stabilizing the photochemical process. By the end of the 18 century, the necessary equipments (the camera obscura) were available at least to produce semipermanent photographic images.
The artistic style and aesthetics of Renaissance and post- Reneissance Europe placed a high value on a naturalistic render-ing of nature and thus legitimatized the use of machines like camera obscura by artist. By the mind 18 century, a public demand had made itself for realistic portraits, which was partially satisfied by experiments in the automatic; if permanent, recording of portrait silhouettes on photo sensitive paper. Two imperatives the need for perspectively accu rate landscape and architectural scenes and for objectively truthful portraits created a climate for certain types and styles of pictures that, after 1839, would be achieved easily by photography.
