STAT P Scale Scores

You will receive a scale score between 0 and 100. The scoring process carried out will not allow you to work out how many of the 70 questions you answered correctly.

There is no "pass or fail" score for STAT P. The STAT P score scale reflects the differing abilities of applicants and the different degrees of difficulty of the test questions. Universities will decide on minimum accepted scores for each course. ACER cannot provide advice on this.

STAT P scores provide a relative estimate of an applicant's ability compared to other potential applicants. STAT P scores are an objective measure of an applicant's academic capacity but other factors also play a key role in the final determination of academic success. Such factors include the applicant's motivation, application, determination and perseverance.

Percentile Ranking

A percentile rank in relation to the score achieved by each applicant is also provided. For example, an applicant with a Total STAT P scale score of 67 will have a percentile rank (%ile) of 81. This would mean the applicant achieved a score that is as good as or better than 81% of the test-takers. Percentile ranks provide information about how well an applicant has performed relative to the other test takers in that year.

Release of Results

Universities receive the STAT P results before the applicants in early December 2017.

Results will be available to applicants in mid-December 2017.

Applicants who register individually with ACER will be able to access their results in their ACER User Account. An email is sent when results are available.

Results for applicants who register in bulk through their school will be sent to the school for distribution.
