Before booking your test

To sit your test online, you MUST ensure that you have read the test room and equipment requirements as outlined in the Complete Guide to STAT.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your computer meets the minimum technical requirements before you book your test with ACER or schedule your test time with the online proctoring service.

Booking your test

  1. First register and pay for your STAT test with ACER.

This must be completed at least 72 hours prior to your chosen date (e.g. if you want to sit your STAT at 5 pm Saturday you must select this session before 5 pm Wednesday). If you do not schedule your test in time, you will need to defer your test to the next available testing window at a cost of $65.
