University of Pretoria NBT Update

For many years, all universities have required learners to take the National Benchmark Test to qualify for a place at their university. However during this pandemic, certain universities have not made it compulsory for certain courses.

University of Pretoria has decided not to use the National Benchmark Test (NBT) as an admission requirement for any undergraduate programme for 2021. This decision was made due to the lockdown measures in South Africa.

For those who have already applied for the NBT, their faculties will be in contact with them in a week.
