PimNas 2012: UGM Teams Break First and Second
Universitas Gadjah Mada fielded their top debaters in the 2012 National English Education Debate, which is part of the annual National Science Week or popularly known as Pimnas, and took the two top spots on the preliminary tab, opening the chance for an all-UGM final. Other universities chose to send their strong teams to the 2012 Java Overland Varsities English Debate that is going on at the same time. Universitas Indonesia, for instance, sent freshmen debaters in one team (UI A) and English literature students without debating experience in another (UI B) to Pimnas, known more as an event for Indonesian students to showcase their scientific research.
