There is no pass or fail score for STAT. Universities decide on the appropriate minimum required scores for different courses.

STAT scores are reported as a mark on a scale ranging between 100 and 200, with a mean of 150. The scale score reflects the differing abilities of the test takers and the different degrees of difficulty of the test questions. Results are calculated using complex algorithms. It is not possible for candidates to work out how many questions they answered correctly.

The Total (Multiple Choice) Scale Score is calculated using the following formula:

Overall Score = (Verbal Reasoning + Quantitative Reasoning) / 2.

The Written English Score is treated separately as not all test takers sit both tests.

STAT scores are intended to provide a relative estimate of a test takers ability compared to other test takers.

Universities are provided with percentile rankings in relation to scores achieved by each test taker. For example, a test taker who receives a total percentile rank of 81.4 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 test taker has performed relative to the test-taking population in the reference year

Currency of results

STAT results have a 3-year validity from the date of issue.

Some universities may impose their own limit on the length of time for which they consider a STAT score valid. Test takers are advised to check each university and course requirements carefully.

Appeals

Candidates are advised that STAT results are released only after careful calculation and extensive checking.

ACER will not enter into appeals regarding STAT results. Requests for re-marking will not be considered. There will be no consideration, such as adjusting test results, for perceived or actual impaired performance on the test day caused by illness or other unexpected personal situations. Test takers are encouraged to contact ACER prior to the test to arrange an alternative test session.

Please note that test takers will not be provided with any additional information regarding scores or the scoring process.

Any complaints or difficulties should immediately be brought to the attention of the proctor. Issues that cannot be resolved by the proctor at the time of the test should be reported to the STAT Office at ACER by email (stat@acer.org) on the day of the test so that the issue can be addressed without delay. As much information as possible should be provided in the email to ACER.
