Literacy and numeracy online practice tests that provide reports of achievement against the test standards are now available for registered candidates via their accounts. Before undertaking a practice test candidates are strongly advised to first read the document How to get best value from the practice tests.

NOTE:  Candidates who are planning to use the online practice tests for indicative performance against the standard are strongly advised to view the PDF print versions of the materials and worked solutions only after attempting the online practice test.

PDF print versions of the practice tests and worked solutions are primarily designed as resources for candidates after they have attempted the online practice tests but may also be of value to prospective candidates and other interested parties such as higher education providers.
