The Computer-Based Writing Exam (UTBK) is a selection to enter State Universities (PTN) through the joint selection to enter State Universities (SBMPTN). The UTBK test material consists of a Scholastic Potential Test (TPS) and an Academic Competency Test (TKA) consisting of Science and Technology and Social Sciences. The UTBK material has a high level of difficulty, but not many high school students have prepared themselves from the start. This study aims to analyze the correlation between the ability of the Scholastic Potential Test and the academic competence of the 12th graders of SMA Negeri 1 Situbondo. This research is a survey research, with respondents from all 12th grade students majoring in science and social studies who are willing to take part in the UTBK Try Out, namely 65 science students and 50 social studies students. The results of the t-test statistical analysis showed that there was no significant difference (p > 0.05) in the ability of science and social studies students to the ability of TPS in the components of General Knowledge, reading and writing ability, and English language ability. Meanwhile, the reasoning and numeric abilities of science students were significantly (p < 0.05) higher than social studies students. The results of Pearson's correlation analysis show that there is a significant positive correlation (p = 0.000) between TPS scores and science and technology academic competence in science students. However, TPS scores on social studies students do not correlate with Soshum's academic competence. Conclusion: the readiness of science students is higher than social studies students in facing the 2022 UTBK.
