Special tertiary admissions test

Special tertiary admissions test


The Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) is an alternative entry method to Macquarie University that is a series of tests designed to assess a range of competencies considered important for success in tertiary study. It assesses your ability to think critically and analyses the material given, rather than testing your knowledge of specific academic subjects.

There are two versions of STAT: Multiple Choice and Written English.

At Macquarie we accept the Multiple Choice version.


The STAT is available for non current school leavers. It is applicable for all degrees except:

  • Bachelor of Actuarial Studies and its double degrees
  • Bachelor of Actuarial Studies with Professional Practice (Honours)
  • Bachelor of Professional Practice and Bachelor of Professional Accounting
  • Bachelor of Clinical Science

Please note, STAT does not satisfy English language proficiency (ELP). For more information on ELP requirements, please visit our English language requirements page.
