In 2016, Lungi Mkhize from Maris Stella High School Durban found herself in the same situation as most learners who are applying for university, she needed to write the National Benchmark Tests (NBTs).

These tests results would decide if she would make it into university or not. With her future education plans at risk from her results, she decided to prepare for these tests. Lungi was successful in her NBT results and went on to study Engineering at the University of Johannesburg. Watch her NBT journey above.

If you want to prepare for the NBTs you can by going to our NBT pages.
