Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT)
The Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) is developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER).
There are many alternative pathways into university; however, the STAT test is a quicker option than undertaking a foundation/pre-tertiary bridging course and may be suitable for:
- mature-age 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
- applicants to any course for which STAT scores are considered (check current course guides).
