How is the STAT test scored?
STAT scores are reported as a mark on a scale ranging between 100 and 200, with a mean of 150. Scores are not represented as a percentage as there is no "pass or fail" score for STAT. The STAT score scale reflects the differing abilities of the candidates and the different degrees of difficulty of the test items.
STAT scores are intended to provide a relative estimate of a candidate's ability compared to other potential or past applicants. Although STAT scores are an objective measure of a candidate's academic capacity, other factors play a key role in the final determination of academic success. Such factors include the candidate's motivation, application, determination and perseverance.
What is a percentile ranking?
Institutions are provided with percentile rankings in relation to scores achieved by each candidate. For example, a candidate with an overall STAT score of 160 will have a percentile rank of 81.4, so has achieved a score that is as good as or better than 81.4% of the test-taking population. Percentile ranks provide information about how well a candidate has performed relative to the test taking population in the reference year.
How are results provided to you?
Results are issued by the organisation with which you booked your STAT test; either via post and/or your online applicant account. Results are never released over the phone.
How long will it take for your results to arrive?
Expect to receive your results several weeks after your test date.
How does the university receive my STAT results?
If you applied to university through a Tertiary Admissions Centre, your results will be issued to the university for you.
If you applied directly to a university, you must provide your statement of results to the university yourself.
What are the minimum STAT scores for entry into university?
Universities set their own minimum scores for entry into each course; ACER does not have access to this information.
STAT results are not comparable to ATARs and ACER cannot provide an ATAR equivalent score.
Do you need another copy of your results?
You should contact the organisation that you booked your STAT sitting with to request a duplicate copy. You may be charged a fee for this service.
