Preparation for the NBT
You should register to write the test(s) at your own choice of venue and date, at least one month prior to the date on which the test(s) is/are to be written. Please note that seats are limited at venues. If you do not register and pay for the test(s) in advance, you will not be able to write.
Registration to write the NBTs is done through the Internet and takes about five minutes to complete. Open your browser to www.nbt.ac.za. After reading the general information and the FAQs, select the "Register to write" tab and follow all instructions. Note that you will need your official South African ID or foreign passport in order to complete the registration process.
If you do not have access to the Internet, or encounter problems during the registration process, you may either call 021 650 3523 or send an email to [email protected] for assistance. The NBT Project helpline is staffed from 08:00 to 18:00 on weekdays and from 07:00 to 10:00 on national test day over weekends.
UP Test Dates
Registration for all NBT sessions opens 1 April 2017.
All NBT fees must be paid through EasyPay. Take your NBT registration letter with you to an EasyPay paypoint near you to pay. You may also pay on the EasyPay website: www.easypay.co.za and then print out your receipt.
EasyPay paypoints are found throughout South Africa at food stores, including Pick n Pay, Shoprite Checkers and Spar, as well as many other merchant sites.
Registered applicants who do not report for scheduled tests, must again register and pay in order to reschedule a missed test. Please note that you may not write only the MATHEMATICS test.
Please visit the NBT website or contact the call centre for confirmation of the abovementioned dates and for information about the test venues.
Do you need to be more prepared for the National Benchmark Test (NBT)?
