The universities in South Africa require students to have a National Senior Certificate (Matric) and a National Bench Mark Test (NBT) score to determine whether the students are suitable to attend their university. Here’s how you can register for your NBT.

The NBT consists of 2 separate examinations. The first exam is the Academic Literacy and Quantitative Literacy (AQL), which is a 3 hour multiple choice exam. The second test is a Mathematics (MAT) test, which is also 3 hours long and multiple choice.

How to Register for The NBT Test

Step 1:

Visit the NBT website at https://www.nbt.ac.za/, click book now and follow the prompts, you will receive a NBT reference number once registration is complete.

You can pay using an EasyPay paypoint (AQL only R125) or (AQL and MATHS R250). Your NBT reference number is your EasyPay reference number which you can use to make payment.

You will need your ID number to register and your ID Card or Book to write the test.
