This paper attempts to reveal the problems concerning the implementation of the National Final
Examination  (UAN)  and  its  solution  for  further  policy.  The  result  of  the    National  Final
Examination  which  is  nationally  conducted   determines  the  graduation  of  the  high  school
students.  This  policy  is  contradictory  to  the  spirit  of  the  School  Based  Curriculum  (KTSP)  in
which every school is given autonomy to set up its  own curriculum, syllabus, lesson plan, and
material  for  the  teaching  and  learning  process.  Therefore,  if  the  result  of  the  National  Final
Exam (UAN) is considered as the main instrument of  deciding the students to graduate without
considering the different status, facilities, and human resources of the schools in Indonesia then it
is improper to be continued. As a matter of fact that many of the schools which have very limited
facilities,  status  and  unqualified  human  resources  fail  to  make  the  students  to  get  satisfactory
result of the UAN even reaching to 100% failure. It is therefore suggested that the government
should reevaluate its policy and the following suggestions can be taken into consideration for
the betterment. First, The result of UAN should not be taken as the main instrument of deciding
the  students  to  graduate  but  can  be  used  as  a  prerequisite  requirement  for  the  enrolment  of
further study. Second, the schools are given their authority to decide their students to graduate by
referring to their portfolio and their result of the UAN.
Key words: National Final Examination (UAN), SchoolBased Curriculum (KTSP).
