STAT - Preparation
STAT involves a series of tests that assesses a range of competencies considered important for success in tertiary study. STAT is a significant component of the admission process that is being used by many Australian tertiary institutions, for certain categories of applicants.
STAT: Preparation Tips
- Go through the preliminary information given in the free STAT Candidate Information Booklet thoroughly and familiarize yourself with the pattern
- Solve as much as possible practice papers.
- Time-management is the most important skill to work on. Learn to manage time.
- Read the questions carefully and thoroughly.
- For STAT Written English: The candidates are accessed on their writing patterns, hence they must focus on the language, the usage of words and phrases and the flow and structure of writing.
Essentials required on the test day are as follows:
- Admission Ticket being issued by the Tertiary Admissions Centre: The Admission ticket has all the indispensable details of the STAT exam viz, the test location, date, time and most importantly, the candidate number.
- Photo-bearing identification like current passport, Australian driver’s license, photographic proof of age card or key pass card.
The identification document must contain the following:
- Your name: that must match the name used on the Admission ticket.
- Your date of birth
- A recent photograph (embedded in the card i.e. not laminated)
- your signature
- Compulsory Stationery
- Two pencils (B, 2B or HB)
- Pencil sharpener
- Blue or black pens (if sitting the STAT Written English)
If the candidate does not posses any of the above named forms of photo-bearing identification, then in that case, the candidate must obtain a statutory declaration, supplemented by a photo which has been signed on the back by the witness to the statutory declaration.
If you have asked for special arrangements as a result of a disability or other condition, adjustments will be made for you on the test day.
