Image of Academic literacy: Test your competence 

Are you preparing for

university admission?

Does the university require you to complete a test of academic literacy? In South Africa and elsewhere, senior secondary school learners have to prove that they are able to understand and use academic language before they begin studying at university.

Academic literacy:

Test your competence

Some of South Africa's most experienced designers of language tests have contributed to make a workbook for learners who need to practise and sharpen their ability to use academic language. The workbook is aimed at learners in grades 10-12 preparing to write tests of quantitative and academic literacy, and especially if they are prospective first year university students. [Also available in Afrikaans.
