First initiated in 2005, the National Benchmark Test is now used by the majority of South African Universities and Higher Education Institutions to inform the selection and placement of prospective students in competitive degree programmes such as Medicine, Engineering, Commerce and Science.

Advantage Learn developed the first NBT Preparation Course in the country in 2013 to assist learners to prepare for this important assessment. Since then, together with the constant development of our courses to offer the most helpful preparation to learners for both the AQL and the MAT tests, we have helped thousands of learners to NBT success.

I am grateful for this programme as I am more prepared for the test. It gets tricky in the beginning, but you gradually get the hang of it .

I have not written the test yet but the information and the knowledge I have already has made a huge difference and also the confidence I have towards the test is really amazing, I don't want to count the chickens before they hatch let us wait for the test date before I praise you fully.
