STAT Results (A record for when I lose the letter)

Posted by electricaxe on January 19, 2010

I just recently went to complete the STAT which is a test for those who do not have the educational experience to go straight into uni from their results from other insitiutions i.e didn’t do any TEE subjects in high school and only went as far as Certificate III’s in TAFE aka me.

The results arrived in todays mail. Here is an except for the letter detailing my results:

SPECIAL TERTIARY ADMISSIONS TEST – STATEMENT OF RESULTS

The results you obtained in the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) in 2009-2010 are listed below:

STAT Multiple Choice

Quantitative score 161 (a score higher then 71.9% of candidates)

Verbal score 156 (a score higher then 58.5% of candidates)

Overall score 158 (a score higher then 66.4% of candidates)

Written English Score 153 (a score higher then 65.3% of candidates)

STAT scores are reported as a mark between 100 and 200. Scores are comparable across different versions of the test and between years. There are three different scores given for the STAT Multiple Choice. These reflect the measurement of your mathematical/scientific, verbal and overall ability.”

Overall it’s a not too bad result, I think I’m happy with it. 141 is the minimum score for each part to be able to get into uni but is no actual guarantee that you can get into the course. Tomorrow I go to TISC (Tertiary Institutions Service Centre) and actually apply for my course and hopefully get into the second round of offers for the course that I want (fingers crossed).

Wish me luck.

EDIT: As pointed out to me by Mike, this means little to anyone that isn’t me without the conversion from STAT result to TER (Tertiary Enterance Rank). So my TER is 78.5 and the cut-off for my course is 70. So looking good so far. Stay tuned.
