It is then realized in the form of Computer Based National Examination (CBNE). However, the implementation of CBNE in 2018 was still facing various problems including problems related to technical issues and problems related to the content of the examination. Those problems might cause different perceptions towards CBNE 2018 among students. Thus, the aim of this study is to describe Junior High Schools studentsÔÇÖ perceptions towards CBNE 2018 in Malang Municipality; identify problems related to technical issues and problems related to the content of the test encountered by students when taking CBNE 2018; and also investigate strategies used by students to overcome the problems. The data in this study was quantitative and qualitative data. The quantitative data was about studentsÔÇÖ perception, while the qualitative data was about problems related to technical issues and the content of the test; and strategies used by students to overcome the problems. The studentsÔÇÖ perception was described based on three dimensions of Computer Based Assessment Acceptance Model (CBAAM) which were Perceived Ease of Use (PEOU), Perceived Usefulness (PU), and Content (CT). The design of this study was an Internet survey using cross-sectional design. The data was collected through a questionnaire which was administered by using an Internet survey service called Google form. The participants were 140 Junior High School students in Malang municipality who had taken CBNE 2018. The quantitative data was analyzed using percentage, while the qualitative data was analyzed using interpretation. The results show that the majority of the respondents in this study had a positive perception towards the implementation of CBNE 2018 based on PEOU, PU, and CT. In other words, they had a strong perception that taking CBNE 2018 was free of effort, the CBT system for English NE 2018 could enhance their job performance, and the questions in English CBNE 2018 were useful, clear and understandable. Despite the fact that most of the respondents in this study had positive perceptions towards the implementation of CBNE 2018, various problems related to technical issues were identified, such as inadequate computer devices including the mouse and keyboard, problems with adjusting the screen brightness, unstable v Internet connection, problems with login, token was delivered late, supply electricity interruption, server down and insufficient time allocation. In addition, the main strategy used by students to overcome those various technical issues was asking for help from the proctor, technician, or test supervisor. It implies that the role of proctor, technician, and test supervisor is very important in the implementation of CBNE 2018. Besides problems related to the technical issues, problems related to the content of English national examination were also identified in the implementation of CBNE 2018. The problems include more difficult questions, unable to understand the reading passages, more difficult vocabularies, the pictures were not clear enough, the font was too small, inability to take notes or underline some words, incompatible with the blueprint, and low English proficiency. In addition, various strategies used by students to overcome those problems were also identified such as thinking harder, answering randomly, cheating, answering as they can, answering the easiest one, reading the passages more than once or skipping it, guessing the meaning by relating the words with the context, wearing glasses, taking distance slightly from the computer screen, taking a short break, and praying. Moreover, the respondents realized that they should study English harder in order to perform better in CBNE in the future. In summary, the implementation of CBNE 2018 was considered good enough even though there were several things that should be improved for better implementation in the future.
