COVID-19 (Coronavirus) advice

The Special Tertiary Admission Test (STAT) brings together large groups of people, which presents potential risks for community transmission of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). 

ACER takes the health and wellbeing of everyone we work with seriously and recognises its duty of care to support attempts to limit the spread of the virus. Although heightened health restrictions designed to prevent community transmission of COVID-19 imposed by federal and state authorities have eased this year, this can change very rapidly. Consequently, venue-based sittings scheduled for Vic., NSW, ACT and QLD are subject to last minute cancellation

We we continue to offer the online test option to candidates based in Vic., NSW, ACT and QLD.

Candidates in the NT, SA or WA should contact their local Tertiary Admissions Centre for information about venue-based STAT sittings in their state or territory. Candidates in SA and the NT should contact SATAC to determine their eligibility to sit STAT online and to gain written permission from them to do so. Candidates based in WA are ineligible to sit STAT online.

ACER will continue to follow government advice and the recommendations of the Chief Medical Officer and other authorities. If any changes are made to these advertised test sittings, updates will be posted to our website here
