National Benchmark Tests (NBT’s)

They have been found unhelpful for placement by UNIZULU & are not used. Placement into mainstream or extended (foundation) programmes is dependent on the points score achieved in NSC or NCV and is facilitated by the faculty which houses the particular foundation programme. Foundation programmes are designed to support students who, while qualifying to enter a programme, are considered to be at risk as a result of a weak NSC score. UNIZULU has a science and a commerce foundation programme. Admission interviews are held with students for some professional qualifications like the B Nursing degree and B Social Work to assess the suitability of the applicant for the profession.
