National Benchmark Test (NBT) Preparation

Advantage Learn don’t simply care about getting their students to their desired Matric Results. They find joy in seeing them succeed and make their dreams come true. As such AL.com has pioneered an NBT preparation course to help students Trish holding an NBT workshop at the GreenDoorbest prepare to take the National Benchmark Test to get their coveted spot at a tertiary institution. An entire page of their site is dedicated to guiding learners through how best to book, prepare and write the NBTs. Advantage Learn runs in-person NBT courses for schools and individuals across the country. These courses run from April to August and all information will be on the information page. While the information page will show you all the NBT related material provided by AL.com, below are direct links to their course pages.

Want to go above and beyond? These resources will help you

While courses may make up the bulk of Advantage Learn’s focus, the aim is to support students in any way possible. Thus there are many resources available on the AL.com site. Some are permanent and some are temporary for the appropriate time of the academic year.

  • One of the most useful resources to a Matric learner is an NBT Preparation – Test Yourself quiz. This quiz allows you to answer some mock NBT style questions put together by Trish Pike. This can serve as a reality check to those who think that your usual schooling prepares you for the NBTs. It also helps to let you know where you are at, and how much prep, if any, you will need to do.
  • The Past Papers Resource Page provides learners with the opportunity to download all past papers. Practice is the name of the game for successful Matric results. As such, providing this resource means preparing AL.com learners as best as possible.
  • In the internet age, blogs are a way that we get ‘on the ground’ discussions about many topics. As such, AL.com’s blog aims to produce posts that discuss and reflect on many topics relevant to high school (and sometimes university learners) and their parents. The blog also often provides insight into the working of AL.com and introduces the team. Check it out here.students paying attention in class

I have watched the development of AL.com for years and marveled at the ingenuity and passion shown from the start. As a Linguistics major, university lecturer and burgeoning copywriter, the Advantage Learn story is one close to my heart. I hope to add to the development of educational thinking in South Africa by helping to relate topics and create spaces for thought on the challenges and opportunities facing South African learners, students, and parents.
