NATIONAL BENCHMARK TESTs (NBTs)


Considering the uncertainty regarding the timeline of NBT testing and logistical challenges of testing due to COVID-19, Stellenbosch University will not utilize NBT scores for selection and placement purposes for the 2021-intake. Also see communique from the NBT team that was published on 4 May to all applicants on their website (www.nbt.ac.za). Applicants who were requested to write the NBTs before the end of June for selection consideration in the faculties of Law and Medicine and Health Sciences, will no longer be required to do so. NBT will not be taken in account in the calculation of the selection score. In accordance, the NBTs will not be required for admission or placement purposes in any other faculty.

The only exception is applicants from the School of Tomorrow (SOT). All SOT applicants for Stellenbosch University should write the NBTs before the end of 2020 to ensure that their results are available before registration in 2021.

SU apologises for any inconvenience caused for applicants who have already made a booking.
