To increase your selection rank, you may be able to complete a:
- bridging program,
- tertiary studies pathway, or
- Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT).
Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT)
The Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) is a multiple-choice test that can be used to gain a selection rank.
You can only use the STAT if you:
- are 18 years or over
- are not currently completing high school
- have not completed one full year of bachelor or higher-level studies.
The STAT test can be used on its own or combined with employment experience or vocational qualifications.
The maximum selection rank you can gain from the STAT and combined qualifications is capped. If you're applying for a program with a high entry score threshold, you may want to consider undertaking a tertiary studies pathway instead.
