NBT Preperation

The National Benchmark Tests (NBTs) were commissioned by Higher Education South Africa (HESA) with the task of assessing academic readiness of first year university students as a supplement to secondary school reports on learning achieved in content specific courses.

The NBT's assess the ability to combine aspects of prior learning in competency areas - Academic Literacy (AL), Quantitative Literacy (QL) and Mathematics (MAT) - that directly impact on success of first year university students.
