Special Tertiary Admissions Test Preparation

STAT Preparation Tutoring


Special Tertiary Admissions Test
The Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) is a two-hour aptitude test that demonstrates your capability of undertaking future tertiary study. The test results help institutions decide which applicants to consider for their courses. Tertiary institutions use applicants’ STAT scores, together with other information available to them to make decisions about offers of places in their courses. As a general guide a STAT result can combine with the following qualifications:
  • Queensland Senior External Subject Examinations
  • Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation (CATP)
  • Professional Qualifications in Defence and Emergency Services
  • Competency-Based Training (Such as Certificates and Diplomas)

The Test

This version has 70 multiple-choice questions, half verbal (like English and English comprehension) and half quantitative (like maths and science). The questions focus on your ability to process, analyse and understand information presented in different ways, like graphs, tables, diagrams, poems and cartoons.
