2020 LCaT Academic literacy workshops for matrics

Soon your son or daughter may have to complete an academic literacy test as part of an application for admission to university. In view of the scarcity of places on offer, universities are increasingly using such tests as an additional criterion for access. Such tests include the Academic and Quantitative Literacy component of the National Benchmark Tests (NBTs).

If they prepare for these tests (yes, it is possible!) they will give themselves an advantage of scoring up to 15% more. For this reason our old customers keep on returning: our workshop is an annual event at Waterkloof, Crawford and other top schools over the last five years.
