The National benchmark test (NBT) is a set of tests that measure a student’s readiness for university study. These tests act as a complement to a student’s national senior certificate results. There are 2 sets of tests which consist of 3 aspects. They are as follows:
- AQL which is split up into Academic Literacy (English) and Quantitative Literacy
Candidates write two 3-hour papers. The mathematics test is generally pursued by students who are looking to study further in any mathematics and science fields at university level (Please visit the NBT website directly or liaise with university to understand this better).
The National Benchmark Test project does not make any test papers available to the public. Students are advised to prepare adequately for these tests in spite of this constraint.
