The Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) is a national test designed to assess aptitude for learning in a tertiary environment.

It comprises two tests, written English and multiple choice:

  • Written English
    Tests your ability to communicate effectively in writing
  • Multiple choice
    Tests the areas of Humanities, Social Science, Mathematics and Science.
