It’s not about the NBT’s! It’s about being prepared for university

Our Grade 12’s deserve to reach university prepared

“It seems to me,” the mother of a Grade 12 recently wrote to me, “that tertiary institutions no longer expect children to take the NBT’s (for MANY of the programmes)”.

“Is it true?” she asks.

2021 Academic literacy workshops for pupils from all over

What do Grade 12 learners from Sentraal and Oranje Meisies in Bloemfontein, from Curro in Nelspruit, from Alma Mater in Krugersdorp, from Waterkloof High and Afrikaans Hoër Meisies in Pretoria, and from Linden High in Johannesburg have in common with Crawford College and Hoërskool Zwartkop in Pretoria, learners from Middelburg, Hermanus and Vrede?

The book really helped and showed how they [the NBTs] would ask questions, so I knew what to expect, especially after doing all five of the tests. I think that everyone should do some work to prepare as it is a test unlike any normal test at school.

Johannesburg Grade 12 learner

Your book helped a lot – it gave me a lot of confidence. The AQL paper went well yesterday …  I’ll be sure to recommend it to other students.

Slim Lindeniete nou nog slimmer

‘n Klompie vriendelike matrieks het vandag in die saal van die Hoërskool Linden vergader om voor te berei vir die akademiese en kwantitatiewe geletterdheidskomponent van die Nasionale Normtoetse. Hierdie toetse, beter bekend as die NBT’s of National Benchmark Tests, word toenemend deel van universiteitstoelatingsveresistes. En Lindeniete vat nie kanse nie — as so ‘n toets geskryf moet word, wil hulle weet wat om te verwag. Dit was ‘n kwessie van: “Wys ons die hekkie en ons spring oor hom”.

NBT AQL preparation: yes or no?

Can you prepare?

Can or should you prepare for the Academic and Quantitative Literacy (AQL) component of the National Benchmark Tests? Of course you can. Why would you not prepare? Why would you not seek to become familiar with the unusual format of such tests? Why would you not grasp the opportunity to gain an understanding of what academic literacy means? If you do an example test and check the correct answers, you will certainly develop your ability to use academic language. And that ability is exactly what the AQL component tests!
