What is the QTAC STAT?
The QTAC STAT is a two-hour multiple-choice exam (70 questions) designed to test a range of competencies important for successful university study. The test, which is administered by QTAC, is widely accepted and used by most tertiary institutions in Queensland and many others throughout Australia.
Why sit the STAT?
A good STAT result may improve your chance of selection into a university program. It is a way of obtaining a rank for non-school leavers who have no formal academic qualifications and are applying to university on the basis of alternative entry qualifications, such as employment experience. A good STAT test result can also be combined with your Certificate IV Adult Tertiary Preparation results or other VET qualifications to boost your university entrance rank.
See the QTAC STAT page for further information. Please note that individual universities have their own rules about using STAT test results.
Why attend a QTAC STAT preparation workshop?
The STAT preparation workshop is delivered by an expert in STAT exams and will provide students with a thorough overview of the test. The workshop enables students to develop their confidence in sitting the test and provide exam strategies that can help maximise results. Practice questions and a practice exam is included as part of the workshop.
