I got my confirmation letter in the mail today to confirm I will be sitting the stat test on the 21st August at 10am. Anyone have any tips? Or is it pretty much straight forward?

I suggest you download the sample questions and have a go at those so you know what you're in for! Also Take plenty of stationary (pencils, erasers and a sharpener) and water.

def get some practice questions, they are really helpful!
Take your time and work each one out slowly, with the answers if you need to...it is much more effective to work them through with the answers than to flounder (just like kids learning new things).
Once you are comfy...try and explain how to work them out to someone else...this concretes the understanding.
On test day...arrive at your centre nice and early. Grab a takeaway coffee (or what ever you favour) and go for a wander about (fresh air if possible). Make sure you have a good supply of pens/pencils/eraser etc so you don't have to worry if one breaks/runs out.
Take your time, read through all the questions and then go back and start answering.
Good luck!! I did mine a few years ago and am now in my course and doing really well

I sat mine last year, it really is nerve wracking but believe in yourself you can do this!!
All the pp advice is great also work out how much time you have to complete each question and make sure you dont spend too much time on one. Never skip completely though because you dont want to get your answers out of whack. If you are really stuck just guess but mark the question so if you have time you can go back to it. (hope that makes sense) also use a process of elimination. Normally there are only 2 answers that are close to the right one. If you can narrow it down to 2 and then even if you have to guess you still have more chance of getting it right.
For the essays read widely newspapers etc smart newspapers though not the daily tabloid type ones. Practice practice practice
