Standard Bank South Africa is funding a project that is increasing the number and quality of learners entering into South African universities. The R5,7-million funding will go towards further implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the National Benchmark Tests Project.
The project is headed Higher Education South Africa (HESA), which is the association of universities in the country, and administered by the University of Cape Town through the Centre for Higher Education Development.
The National Benchmark Tests were commissioned by HESA as a supplement to the school-leaving examinations written at the end of the matric year. The tests assess the potential for educationally disadvantaged students to succeed in a higher education setting.
Standard Bank's contribution will enable the National Benchmark Tests Project to:
