Since the stat test is utilized by numerous institutions to select students for their tertiary courses, its transparency and integrity is of great importance for them. The Stat test has quite an effect on a candidate’s career and future. The results of this test decide their career path, and on the basis of those results they are offered or denied courses. Due to its high potential, the rules and regulations governing all aspects of this test are strictly designed and candidates are required to follow them precisely. They are responsible to have the right knowledge of those rules and ensure their compliance. They are also required to follow certain rules of conduct and should not display unethical behaviour. Some of these rules are listed below:

  • Certain necessary information is required by the candidates when registering for stat exam, which should be accurately provided by him. That information should not be deceptive or fake. The student is required to provide correct and clear information.
