Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) Workshops

Not sure about sitting the STAT? Why not try a preparation workshop. Are you sitting the Multiple Choice or Written English STAT?

If you are a bit nervous, have not sat an exam in a while or are looking for some assistance, you may want to consider attending a STAT preparation workshop.

VTAC will be holding a full day Multiple Choice workshop and a half day Written English workshop.

The workshop convener is Dianne Read, an exceptional educator with a wealth of experience in adult education and has helped many people prepare for the STAT. At the workshop:

  Develop test-taking strategies so you walk into the STAT ready to complete 70 questions in 2 hours.
  Avoid the common traps and mistakes that unprepared applicants make.
●  Discover how to create the right psychological mindset
  Learn specific problem-solving strategies for the Quantitative and Verbal questions
  Practice and review Quantitative questions with science and maths contexts
  Practice and review Verbal questions with language and visual contexts
  Understand what the STAT is and how the test is used for admission purposes
  Pull it all together and apply what you’ve learnt in a short practice-test
  Take home a pool of questions to continue your preparation

  1. I am a Year 12 applicant for 2016…. My selected course says, “Selection requirements: STAT (Some)”… Does that mean even I need to sit a STAT Exam to be considered for next year or not. Please let me know asap.

    • If you’re currently studying Year 12, you are not required to sit the STAT. The STAT is only a selection requirement for some applicants – usually adults returning to study.
