Non-school leavers login with email address and password (set by you). You can retrieve your login details from the login page if you have forgotten them.

Communications with STAT Office

Once applicants have created their ACER Account (part of the test registration process) they will have access to this messaging system.
To access 'Messages', log in in to your ACER User Account and click on the 'Messages' option at the top of the page.

Emails will only be sent if a valid email address has been provided in your ACER User Account. Emails are additional to messages sent to your ACER Account Messaging System. You can add an email address to your ACER Account yourself. Please see the Register webpage for details. Email addresses must be successfully validated before ACER will send communications to them. When you add an email address to your account, the system will automatically send you an email to 'validate your ACER account'. Please check your junk mail folder if you do not receive it.
