If you want to get into university soon or if you want to take the worry out of doing that, then this will be an exciting blog post. The way it stands at the moment, 70% of people who do the STAT will not get into university next year. My aim is to make sure that you are in the 30% who do get the right STAT score which allows you to get in.

So how do you get started in your stat preparation to make sure you get a great result?

Most people start by panicking. They flick through some practice questions or have heard stories from friends about how hard university can be. Then they put it off for a while, worrying as the time until the exam ticks away.

I don’t blame them. It can be intimidating to do this kind of exam especially if it’s been a while since you’ve done any kind of study. There is a lot riding on this one exam so it can be stressful. But it doesn’t have to be a big deal or a big problem. There are three simple steps to follow which will build the foundations for a top STAT test score. Here they are…

The three broad steps that need to be taken to begin your STAT preparation:

1. Decide on WHERE you want to be and WHY you want to be there.

2. Accurately identify where you are NOW.

3. Follow a system/strategy that will get you to where you want to be.

To often people just jump into their STAT preparation and begin anywhere. They’re not too sure where they want to go, what their strengths are, what their weaknesses are, what they need to work on or what they shouldn’t waste their time with. So it’s no surprise that when exam day comes along some people leave feeling like they been hit by a truck – slowly… over hours (it’s a long exam).

Here are the three steps in more detail.

1)      Decide on WHERE you want to be and WHY you want to be there.

The part which asks you to identify ‘where’ you want to be, pretty much asks “which university do you want to go to?” And then, “what is the required STAT score for that university?”

You can start by looking at the top three university’s you would consider attending. Then find out, what is the highest STAT score you need to get in? As well as any other criteria needed for admission. There might be work experience or academic requirements which need to be fulfilled for you to be considered by some universities.

The part that asks you ‘why’ you want to be there focuses on your reasons for going to university. What positive change are you trying to make in your life by going to university? What pain are you trying to get away from? It might be that you are sick of your current situation and want to change your future prospects. Or that you want to make more money to look after your family. Or that you want to achieve your dream. Whatever it is for you, it needs to be clear because that will motivate you to do the work.

If you want a step-by-step process on how to do all this, we cover it in more detail in our ‘Step-by-step’ Manual which comes with the STAT Multiple-Choice and the combined STAT Multiple-Choice & STAT Written English on our website http://www.uniready.info.

Steps 2 and 3 will be covered in the next blog post. For now either do the first step yourself or get some guidance with it by getting one of our programs. See you soon!
