WHEN AND WHERE TO WRITE THE NBT:
You will be asked to choose a test date and venue when you register to write the NBT (see the table of test sites and dates). You may write at any test site and on any date provided.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: What does NBT assessment involve? There are two NBT tests:
The Academic Literacy and Quantitative Literacy (AQL) are combined into one multiple-choice test. The AQL Test is written by ALL UFH applicants.
The second test is Mathematics (MAT), and is written by applicants to
Faculties of Science and Agriculture and Management and Commerce. The Mathematics test is also multiple choice.
The AQL and MAT Tests are written on the same day. Each test has a time allocation of three hours. The AQL test is written during the morning session, and applicants should be at the test venue by 07:30 (or earlier) on the test date. The Mathematics (MAT) test is written in the afternoon session with a short break between the two tests.
How can I prepare for the test?
No special preparation is required for any of the NBTs, However:
The Academic Literacy test (one of two components of the Academic & Quantitative Literacy test) assesses capacity to engage successfully with the demands of academic study in the medium of instruction.
The Quantitative Literacy test (one of the two components of the Academic
& Quantitative Literacy test) assesses ability to manage situations or solve problems of a quantitative naturein real contexts relevant to higher education. It is closely related to the intended outcomes of the NSC subject Mathematical Literacy.
The Mathematics test is based on the Curriculum Statement for the NSC
subject Mathematics, Papers 1 & 2 only.
What if I can’t write on a Saturday?
As shown on the NBT test schedule, there are writing sessions scheduled on
Fridays and Sundays.
What if I miss my scheduled test?
Registration for the NBT is specific to the date and the site you selected.
If you miss your scheduled date, or change your mind about the test
session, you must register and pay again.
Should there be an emergency, you must send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. NBT Project staff will contact you the following week to explore your options for a make-up test. With documentation of a legitimate emergency, you may not be required to pay a second time. Legitimate situations that have occurred in the past include taxi accident on the way to the test site, hospitalization, broken collar bone, and family funeral.
Writers that become sick during the NBTs are always offered the next available writing session. However, the entire test must be written at the make-up session as partial answer sheets are not scored.
The best way to prepare yourself is to have a good night’s rest before the testing, eat a healthy breakfast and make sure that you arrive for the testing in good time.
What must I bring with me to the tests?
On the morning of the test, you must bring with you to the venue:
You will meet the test administrators at the test venue at least 15minutes before testing is scheduled to begin.
Administrators will identify the tests you will be required to write and show you where to sit.
The test administrators will check your identity book for security reasons. After each test, question papers and answer sheets will be collected, and you will be given a break before continuing with the next one.
No prospective student shall be registered as a student at the University for any programme unless he / she meets the general entrance requirements and has written the National Benchmark Test (NBT).
