Eligibility to use STAT in South Australia and the Northern Territory
Results from the STAT Multiple Choice can be used to compete for entry to most undergraduate courses in South Australia and Northern Territory. To find out if you are eligible to use results from the STAT for entry to your preferred course(s) check if:
- your preferred courses have a special entry subquota, and
- you are eligible for consideration in the special entry subquota.
You can find information about the special entry subquota and eligiblity to use a STAT result for entry to courses on the undergraduate selection page.
Results from the STAT can also be used to meet the Course Admission Requirements (CAR) and contribute to your selection score for entry to TAFE SA higher education courses.
If you are applying for courses outside South Australia and the Northern Territory you should check your eligibility to use the STAT with the institution providing the course, or with the tertiary admissions centre in that state.
