I attended your workshop on the 2nd July, and I wrote my NBT on the 6th July. The workshop was a great help, some of the questions were similar and I definitely felt confident going into the NBT after the workshop and the practice I did on the Olympiad website. My maths score was an 82%. Thank you so much for all the help.

I took your course to prepare for the NBT to allow me to study at the University of Pretoria and you have asked me for a testimony.
The prep session had helped me by showing me at what level I was at, at that time. The real NBT was easier in my opinion than the Purple Pepper Maths which is a good thing as it meant the preparation and the advice given had helped. My result was 87%
This result allowed me to gain admission at the University of Pretoria to study BEng (Chemical). I would recommend this preparation course for anyone who has to write the math portion of the NBT as it is insightful as to how the paper will look and gives you a clear idea of how much preparation you will need.

Earlier this year (2015), I attended the Purple Pepper NBT prep session to get a better idea of what to expect in the National Benchmark Test. Besides my straight-A average in school mathematics, the practice paper made me aware of the fact that I was not ready for the intensity of the real NBT. It showed me what level I was on at the time and that it wasn’t where I wanted to be. After working through the exercise book and learning from the examples I went into the NBT with a sense of understanding. Many of the actual questions in the NBT MAT paper felt familiar and this helped me stay calm throughout the harder questions. I scored 87% for my MAT and have been accepted to study Medicine at Stellenbosch University next year.
Thank you, Duard and Reinette le Roux. Your course has helped me successfully achieve this important building block towards my future.
