Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT)

By completing STAT, applicants without a recent or satisfactory Year 12 qualification can demonstrate their ability to succeed in tertiary studies. STAT assesses a range of competencies considered important for successful tertiary study, evaluating skills such as critical thinking, and understanding and analysis of given information. It does not test knowledge of curriculum or specific academic content. Tertiary institutions use applicants’ STAT scores, together with other information available to them at the time of selection, to make decisions about offers of places in their courses.

WHO USES STAT?
  • Mature applicants who don’t have a recent or standard Year 12 qualification
  • Applicants who completed their previous studies outside Australia
  • Applicants who did not gain a satisfactory ATAR
