Is NBTs compulsory?

NBTs is not compulsory across all Schools in South Africa.

The National Benchmark Tests (NBT) measure your academic readiness for University.

The NBT Project is a national initiative run by Universities South Africa (formerly known as Higher Education South Africa: HESA). Some South African universities use the NBTs in addition to the National Senior Certificate (NSC) for access to higher education, while others use the tests to determine the kind of learning support a student will need during their studies.
