NBT Results 2023-2024
According to the NBT Test Schedule, results will be given to universities three weeks following each writing session.
By 12 noon on the day stated on the NBT Test Schedule, results are uploaded to authors’ NBT accounts around four weeks after the writing session.
This ensures that students who want to write a second time have at least six weeks between courses.
How long will my findings be valid?
- The results of your NBT are good for three years.
However, you should inquire about the specific admission requirements of the higher institutions/universities to which you have applied.
How do I get my results?
- You can get your results by going onto the NBT website with your ID number as your username and the password you created when you registered, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org four weeks following the test session.
- On the date specified on the NBT Test Schedule, your results will be accessible by 12 p.m.
- Your results will not be accessible if you have an outstanding balance on your account, such as if you skipped a previous exam and did not pay for it.
- If you are having trouble accessing your results, you must send an email requesting them.
Staff from the NBT Project are not permitted to discuss your results over the phone.
How do institutions get my results?
- When you apply to a school, you will be added to their applicant list.
Institutions and bursary awarders send the NBT Project a request for scores that match the applicants on the list as they process applications.
Institutions and bursary awarders will only receive your results if they specifically request it.
- Before submitting your registration request to the NBT Project, you must select a box indicating that you agree to have your results sent to requesting universities and used in research initiatives.
- Before clicking ‘Submit,’ make sure you’ve read and double-checked everything.
Can I write twice to try for a better score?
- The NBT Project allows a person to rewrite the tests twice.
Please keep in mind that you must pay the entire fee both times.
- If you take the MAT test again the next morning, you must also take the AQL test again.
- You should first check with the colleges or universities to which you are applying; not all will accept a second score.
How are the outcomes communicated?
- The NBTs yield three percentage scores: AL, QL, and MAT, which indicate actual performance rather than ranking.
The table below shows how the results are categorized by ‘Benchmark Level’ for institutions to use.
What is the pass mark?
- The NBTs do not have a pass mark.
Instead, when processing applications and selecting placement, each institution and program uses the Benchmark Levels in conjunction with other available data.
- Some programs and institutions will accept a broader range of marks, whilst others have established a higher bar and a narrower range.
- You must contact the relevant Admissions Office if you have any issues regarding how your result is used by an institution to which you have applied. The NBT Project does not make policies regarding the usage of results.

THE NATIONAL BENCHMARK TESTS LEVELS:
Assessment of required institutional response
Description of benchmark category
|Performance in domain areas suggests that academic performance will not be adversely affected. If admitted, students may be placed into regular programs of study.||Writers performing at the Proficient Level should be able to: Select and use a complex range of vocabulary; understand and interpret non-literal language; understand and critically evaluate the structure and organization of texts and ideas within these texts; evaluate and use a complex range of different text genres; develop academic arguments; evaluate and interpret the evidence for claims.||Writers performing at the Proficient Level should be able to: Select and use a range of quantitative terms and phrases; apply quantitative procedures in various situations; formulate and apply complex formulae; read and interpret complex tables, graphs, charts and text and integrate information from different sources; do advanced calculations involving multiple steps accurately; identify trends/ patterns in various situations; reason logically & competently interpret quantitative information.||Writers performing at the Proficient Level should be able to: Demonstrate insight, and integrate knowledge and skills to solve non-routine problems and make competent use of logical skills (conjecture, deduction). Tasks typically require competence in multi-step procedures, represented in the framework outlined below: Modelling, financial contexts, multiple representations of functions (including trigonometric), trigonometric and geometric problems (2D and 3D), measurement, representation and interpretation of statistical data.|
|The challenges in domain areas are such that it is predicted that academic progress will be affected. If admitted, students’ educational needs should be met as deemed appropriate by the institution (e.g. extended or augmented programs, special skills provision).||Writers performing at the Intermediate level should be able to: Derive word-meanings from context; recognize non-literal language; recognize the fundamental structural and organizational characteristics of texts; recognize and be able to use a specific range of text genres; understand difference between academic and everyday arguments; make conclusions on the basis of evidence given for claims.||Writers performing at the Intermediate level should be able to: Select and use many quantitative terms and phrases; apply known quantitative procedures in familiar situations; formulate and apply simple formulae; read and interpret moderately simple tables, graphs, charts and text; do routine calculations accurately most of the time; identify trends/patterns in familiar situations; reason moderately in simple situations.||Writers performing at the Intermediate level should be able to: Integrate knowledge and skills to solve routine problems with tasks that involve multi-step procedures and require some information processing and decision-making skills, within the framework below: Estimation, calculation, pattern recognition and comparison (in numerical algebraic and financial contexts); solution of equations; use and interpretation of relevant functions represented algebraically or graphically; geometric properties (2D and 3D); geometric and trigonometric problems (2D); calculation and application of statistical measures; representation and interpretation of statistical data.|
|Serious learning challenges identified: it is predicted that students will not succeed without extensive and long-term support. Institutions admitting students performing at this level would need to provide this support through bridging programs (e.g. FET provision or non-credit preparatory courses).||Writers performing at the Basic level should be able to: Cope with a limited range of vocabulary; summarize key ideas related to the organizational structure of texts; recognize that texts have different purposes; understand the fundamental syntactical features of English language; interpret textually explicit information||Writers performing at the Basic level should be able to: Select and use some basic quantitative terms and phrases; apply some known quantitative procedures partially correctly in familiar situations; formulate or apply simple formulae; interpret simple tables, graphs, charts and text; sometimes do simple calculations correctly; identify trends/patterns in familiar situations.||Writers performing at the Basic level should be able to: Carry out mathematical computations that require direct application of simple concepts and procedures in familiar situations. Tasks involve single-step problems requiring recall and reproduction of basic knowledge or procedures, within the real numbers system; simple algebraic contexts; single representations of relevant functions and recognition of their graphs; identification of objects (2D and 3D); simple geometric and trigonometric calculations; identification and use of some statistical measures; simple representation of statistical data.|
