The Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT P) is developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER). Universities use STAT P results to assist their selection of students across a broad range of academic programs.

STAT P is a 2-hour, 10-minute exam that assesses a range of competencies considered important for successful tertiary study. It evaluates verbal and quantitative reasoning skills. Specific subject knowledge is not required.

STAT P gives university applicants an opportunity to demonstrate their ability to cope with tertiary studies, in addition to their Grade 12 achievement results.

The following universities require STAT P scores for their 2018 applicants:

  • The Papua New Guinea University of Technology (UNITECH)
  • The University of Natural Resources & Environment (UNRE)
  • The University of Goroka (UOG)
