    Default Who's Done The STAT, how difficult is it?

    I'm hoping there is a few hubbers that have done the STAT & can advise me on the level of difficulty.

    I need to score 157 to satisfy the English subject requirement. Would that be even remotely possible for someone who hasn't studied in over 17 years?

    Yes, absolutely! I did it 4 or 5 years ago and it was not as difficult as I built it up to be. Are you doing the written English test too? I did find that one hard as I had not written anything even remotely like an essay since school, but I still managed to do ok.

    The practice tests that are available are very like the real thing, IMO. So if you're ok with those you should be fine!

    I don't think I have to do the written English test, just the verbal & quantitive. But I could be wrong, eek!

    I've looked over the test one on the website and that looks fairly straight forward. I would struggle with the written English part though. They run workshops which could be beneficial. I'm going to attend one because I'm not confident with writing anymore.

    I've done it, I found it pretty easy, I scored quite well, can't remember what my score was though. I didn't have to do the written one.

    Subbing because I have to do one in October. I didn't know anything about the written part, or workshops. I'm worried I won't do well.

    I'm freaking out so much!! I am comfortable in testing conditions, but I really want to do well & since you can't study for it, I feel totally out of control.

    I did the practice one and only scored approximately 68%, which I think is quite low.

    I also feel out of control about this test. I wish I could study for it... I wish they could tell you the basic things that will be on it like what math etc. EEK!

    Have you done the sample test online? It's free & you can purchase additional practice tests. As long as you have basic math skills you can work out the answers, the English questions were a little trickier and included poetry.

    Subbing. I'm doing it in October as well but haven't started preparing for it yet. I'm doing vetassess as well (the tafe equivalent) which I sit in mid-Sept. Eek!
