Students who are now in Grades 10 to 12 will soon face the challenges and demands of using academic language in the world of tertiary education.
Many universities require prospective students to complete academic literacy tests, such as the Academic and Quantitative Literacy component (AQL) of the National Benchmark Tests (NBTs), or others.
Why is it important? For a definition of academic literacy, see the ‘What is academic literacy’ page on Albert Weideman’s website.
You cannot study and memorise any specific subject matter. But by doing exercises and studying the correct answers, you can of course hone your academic thinking skills. And you can get used to the format and types of questions, which are quite different from tests and exams that you are used to.
Our workbook with practice tests and answers will help you achieve the best possible results for these tests.
