The rules around STAT exams change from state-to-state, so if you’re applying to an institution outside of Victoria, it is possible that you will need to sit a STAT. Check with the institution you’re applying to. If you have read all of the information available on the course and it’s still not clear to you whether you need to sit an Admissions Test, you will need to contact the institution directly as to whether you need to sit or not and get their response in writing. VTAC has a strict refund policy, so if you incorrectly book a test without checking first, you may not be eligible for a refund.
Preparing for a test
If you are a bit nervous, have not sat an exam in a while or are looking for some assistance, you may want to consider attending a STAT Workshop. VTAC will be holding a full-day Multiple Choice workshop on Saturday 16 May 2015 and a half-day Written English workshop on Sunday 17 May 2015, to coincide with the test sitting dates.
The workshop convenor will work through test-taking techniques and strategies, run through example questions or essay prompts, and help you familiarise yourself with the content and prepare you for the STAT.
