The National Benchmark Tests (NBTs) are assessments for first-year applicants into higher education institutions.
The NBTs were designed to measure a writer’s ability to transfer understanding of Academic Literacy, Quantitative Literacy and Mathematics to the demands of tertiary coursework.
The National Benchmark Tests comprise three multiple choice tests, written as a combined Academic Literacy and Quantitative Literacy (AQL) test, and a separate Mathematics (MAT) test. Both are three-hour, multiple-choice tests.
- The Academic Literacy (AL) test targets a writer’s capacity to engage successfully with the demands of academic study in the medium of instruction of the test.
- The Quantitative Literacy (QL) test targets a writer’s ability to manage situations or solve problems in a real context that is relevant to higher education study, using basic quantitative information that may be presented verbally, graphically, or in tabular or symbolic form.
- The Cognitive Academic Mathematics Proficiency Test (CAMP / MAT) is a three-hour test that targets a writer’s ability related to mathematical concepts formally regarded as part of the secondary school curriculum (Mathematics Papers 1 and 2) relevant for Higher Education studies.

I have enjoyed working as a tutor under ASA. It is really fulfilling to watch my students reach their goals and gain pride in themselves.
My son is a perfectionist who was very shy and afraid to ask questions to the teacher in front of his friends. You guys have surely helped in building his self-confidence.

My son was struggling with Maths and for the first time he seems to not only understand the concepts but has also started enjoying the subject.
I enjoy tutoring and being a part of ASA. The staff are friendly, helpful and very efficient. There is a great sense of professionalism in the company and they also look after their tutors and pay on time.
