Test day

Taking your exam online

For information about the online test day experience, please refer to the online testing section of this website and the Complete Guide to STAT for Online Sittings.

Online Platform Demo

In order for you to familiarise yourself with the online test delivery platform, the STAT Office has provided an online demo for you to navigate and explore.

The purpose of this demo is not to provide additional practice questions but rather, to provide candidates with the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the online test delivery platform. We encourage you to try the demo so that you understand the functionality of the platform and know what to expect when you undertake your STAT exam.

To access the online Demo, login to your ACER user account, and click on the ‘Manage test booking’ button.

Near the top of your registration dashboard, under the header ‘Online Platform Demo’, click on the ‘Online Platform Demo’ button. Then click on the ‘View Demo’ button.

Please note:

None of the questions that appear in the demo will be marked. This is for familiarisation of the delivery platform only, so please do not contact the STAT Office seeking feedback or results. The answers to these questions are in the Complete Guide to STAT.

This demo is only available once you have registered to sit the test online.

If you are sick on your test day (ACER sittings only)

If you are sick on the day of your scheduled online test session(s), you have the following options based on the time remaining until the end of the test window:

  • more than 24 hours - reschedule your test with ProctorU via live chat only or defer your test to the next window
  • less than 24 hours - email the STAT Office immediately with your reason and supporting evidence for consideration.

Requests must be supported by a medical certificate within one week of your scheduled exam.

Your registration and payment will be forfeited should you fail to contact us, or contact us outside of this time frame.
