Refund policy 


Candidates are able to defer their ISAT registration once. Any subsequent deferrals will incur a deferral fee of $65 AUD.

What is the ISAT ID

When you register to sit ISAT with ACER, you are provided with an ISAT ID. You will receive your ISAT ID in your initial confirmation email and via your ACER account.

The ISAT ID is to be quoted on your tertiary admissions applications and it is important that you do not provide institutions with the incorrect ISAT ID. The confusion caused by providing the incorrect ISAT ID may lead to a delay in reviewing your application or failure to access your ISAT results, which are critical as part of your application.

Reasonable adjustments

If you have a disability or other health-related or educational need which might interfere with your ability to sit the test in the standard manner, you should apply for reasonable adjustments as soon as possible after you complete your registration.

This includes if you require:

  • access to food
  • medication
  • medical equipment or other devices during testing time

If you are unsure, we recommend you submit an application. All requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis and all reasonable efforts will be made to provide you with support and appropriate testing conditions for your needs.

Candidates whose native language is not English may bring a printed bilingual dictionary into the test. Dictionaries must not contain definitions of English words in English. The pages must be unmarked and all notes removed. Any candidate taking this option must submit the dictionary to the proctor for inspection before the test begins. Candidates should note that electronic dictionaries are not permitted
