What is covered in this workshop?

The National Benchmark Tests are split into two tests, the AQL and MAT. This workshop prepares learners for the AQL test or Academic and Quantitative Literacy test. It is a common misunderstanding that this test is only testing a learner’s ability to read and interpret written texts as it also tests a learner’s ability to apply mathematical literacy concepts to questions.

This workshop, like the AQL test, is split into Academic Literacy (AL) training and Quantitative Literacy (QL) training. The workshop is delivered by one of Advantage Learn’s expert teaching team members using modern technology and teaching methods to make the content come to life in a memorable way for the learners who are getting ready to sit the NBT test which can define their future.


This workshop includes a print version of our AQL NBT Preparation Workbook!


4-hour in-person workshop covering all the crucial AQL concepts.
12-month online access to our highly sought-after AQL mock tests for you to assess your knowledge.
Our physical workbook that covers the workshop content.
Mock tests with video answers to help you with the questions you struggled with.

Very useful. Considering I had absolutely no idea what to expect from the NBTs I do truly believe that this helped me massively when I finally wrote them. If you are in two minds about utilising this product, but like me have no real idea what to expect then I highly recommend it.

It was enjoyable and I learnt a lot. I feel like I'll be prepared to write my NBTs now. It felt a bit fast paced, but all in all it was a good experience.

- Thede Tshabalala -

The advantage learn NBT course was extremely helpful. The videos are short but straight to the point, the exercises and practice questions are similar to the ones we're tested on, in the NBT. Many say that you cant really prepare for the nbt but with advantage learn you can.

- Ziyanda Lembethe -

The course is well presented and the examples are challenging. Teacher is well informed and makes the lessons easy to follow.

- RIZA -

The lessons were easy to follow and the platform is user friendly. I feel prepared to tackle the AQL part

- Lené Kellerman -

- tnagdee -

Excellent course

- Safwaan Nagdee -

Both teachers truly helped me fully understand the concepts that I was rather lacking understanding in. The preparation was beneficial.

- Tsholofelo Bokako -

Trish is an absolute genius, with the further studies Math program. I understand the content real well when she teaches it . She was just as dynamic with the NBT preparation. She went step by step through the material and put my fears at ease. It was a privilege meeting her in person and attending her NBT preparation session. I feel confident now .

- Rowan Gounder -

helped me understand the gaps

- naidoodivyeshen -

We needed a few more breaks as there was a lot to process. The lecturer was superb.

- Joss Alexander -

This workshop made me feel more prepared to write the NBT Maths paper. The book will help me to revise the materials again before the test, and it is also great that I can take a mock exam on your website to complete practice questions. I did a similar workshop with my usual extra maths teacher, and her examples seemed trickier than yours. So I am hoping that the test is more like your questions :-)

- talisa.rademeyer -

The teachers dip really put of effort into taking the time to teach us however in terms of properly and effectively learning, the management of time is weak, in that it is too chunked and leaves you mentally exhausted instead of leaving students with a feeling of understanding and in need of practising what was taught.

- Zanamuhla Nzimande -

It was really a fantastic course that prepared me so well for the NBTs. I highly doubt I would’ve done as well I did if I had not had the preparation of this course. Personally I think I would have managed with just the MAT course, which was in and of itself brilliant for even my matric maths. Thank you advantage learn!

- samlister45 -

From the training itself to all the notes and additional resources online I could not have been more well prepared to write my NBTS.

- kmarkoulides -

Great content explained very well and a great way to prepare for NBTs.

- miteshsa101 -

advantage learn, NBT preparation package is helpful as it is helping me understand many concepts of MATH and again i get to develop new skills on how to tackle problems when doing my MATH homework's and again during the examinations in both mathematics papers and with lessons provided for the AQL, I get to develop a better understating of other English vocabularies. it is very useful I recommend it to every person who needs help with NBT preparations .

- Jesutofunmi Ifeoluwa Adewumi -

The videos were extremely helpful and made so much sense. The content of the videos mimicked that in the NBT and as a result I got 78% in my Math NBT. The teachers answer quickly and I’m so grateful to advantage learn for all the help.

- matanhirefadzai -

This course is EVERYTHING you need to ace you NBT's. Trish teaches not only content for the NBT's but a way of thinking that you can carry through to your final matric examinations. This course was a delight to take part in and made a massive difference in my understanding of mathematics.

The teacher wasted a lot of time in the beginning. We didn’t finish what needed to be done within the 2 workshops. However the recorded version with Trish Pike is a lot better

- Gabi Davis -

Thank you.The workshop was really helpful and fun. At school I can still use what I learnt there to help me.

- Reabetswe Mohlaka -

The MAT workshop was definitely worth my time. After being so used to using a calculator, the workshop really helped open my mind to methods I would never have thought of on my own. The workshop helped me understand the ways in which I could analyze different questions and how to approach them. The teaching was easy to understand and the response to questions was clear and efficient.

- Yusuf Hajat -

Great course! Teachers are very helpful and thorough.

Trish was great

- Christina Katakuzinos -

The workshop really helps in putting you in the mind set and way of thinking that is needed when tackling the test. I recommend doing it and learning as much as you can from it. NBTs offer a very different way of testing than we are used to. It’s worth it

- Lunani Gamede -

I found the course unbelievably helpful and I can honestly say I am now well prepared and confident for the test.

Great interactive experience. Makes you even wonder why you needed a calculator in the first place!

- Philile Shelembe -

Very helpful and makes me feel more prepared and confident for the NBTs

- Kayuri Chetty -

The first session (Saturday) was very insightful however I felt that the the second session (Sunday) was very rushed also considering that this was a topic I'm struggling on. With any questions that needed to be answered, I ended up just guessing as I couldn't keep up.

- Michaela Van Der Berg -

Despite not being able to see her students during the livestream the teacher knew which specific sections we would struggle in which is indication of her experience and allowed us to trust her fully in preparing us.

I really enjoyed the lessons, if we wanted to ask a question, the question would be answered immediately and the tricks given by the teacher was very helpful.

Excellent tuition, many topics covered which we haven't even had covered by our teachers in school. Feel more prepared (and a little bit scared because now I know NBTs aren't as easy as they're made out to be.)

- Adrienne Addinall-Kokkas -
