Booking Terms and Conditions

The following booking conditions apply for all test registrations:

  • You must be a bona-fide candidate as per the test eligibility policy.
  • Please be careful when you enter your personal details including your name, date of birth and higher education provider. If you have made a mistake in entering these details, please submit a request to ACER via your online account to request an update. If you request a change of name, you will be asked to submit evidence of such. Please be aware that it is not possible to change your personal details on your statement of results after the test has been sat and test results have been released for the relevant test window.
  • You must register for each test component (literacy and numeracy) separately by selecting them from the list when you book your test. It is your responsibility to ensure you have registered for the test components that you are required to sit. If you make an error in selecting your test component, please contact ACER immediately. Changes will not be permitted after the registration closing date.   
  • You must sit the test by the test delivery mode you selected at the time of booking (test centre or remote proctoring). You can switch between sitting in a test centre or by remote proctoring booking during the registration period, however it is not possible to switch between test centres or remote proctoring after the close of registrations for the relevant test window.
  • You will only be permitted to sit each test component once during any given test window.
  • You must present a valid test admission ticket and identification to sit the test.
  • You must comply with the test misconduct and permitted items policies.
  • If you have a disability or other health related need that might interfere with your ability to sit the test in the standard manner you can apply for reasonable adjustments when you complete your test registration for each test window. Note that reasonable adjustments do not carry over between test windows. If you have previously submitted an application for reasonable adjustments and still require testing adjustments, you will need to submit a new application with your current registration.  
  • Registration deferrals to future test windows will not be accepted. If you register for the test and submit the test fee, your booking is only applicable for the test window you registered for and the delivery mode you select.
  • If you register for the test and are no longer able to sit during the test window you registered for, you can cancel your test booking and request a refund up until the close of registrations for the test window. Note that a refund administration charge applies for each test component cancelled. Please refer to the test refund policy.
