How to Register

Step 1: Have an email address and credit card

Candidates should note that all correspondence will be conducted via email. It is ESSENTIAL that candidates can provide and have access to a valid, functional email address.

Email addresses other than @hotmail or @yahoo are preferred due to their filtering processes. If you must use an @hotmail or @yahoo email account, please add isat@acer.edu.au to your address book to ensure any correspondence sent to you from this office is received.

Have your email address and credit card in hand before logging into the registration system.

Step 2: Check the waiting period for ISAT

You must have at least 12 calendar months between sittings of ISAT. This re-sit rule applies to test takers from 2nd April 2013.

For candidates attempting a second sitting of ISAT, you will not be permitted to register for a sitting of ISAT that is within 12 months of your last date of sitting. If you sit the test within 12 months all registration fees paid will be forfeited and the results from the second sitting of ISAT will be immediately withdrawn. The candidate will not be permitted to sit the test again until 12 months after the last sitting.

Step 3: Check the name on your ISAT registration matches the name on your photo ID

Name terminology
You must use your full formal name as per your passport or other official identity documentation. Your name should be registered for the ISAT test exactly as it is used to apply to universities or admissions centres. This is an important element of matching test results and university applications.

In Australia, names are described in different ways on documentation:
The family name is sometimes called "surname" or "last name".
The given names are sometimes called "first name" and "second name"; the second name is also sometimes called "middle name".

The fields in the Prometric registration system are called "First name", "Middle name" and "Last name".
If you have an anglicised given name, as well as Asian given names, it is suggested you record the anglicised name as your middle name. See example below:

First Name:

Chee Xian

Middle Name:

Alice

Last Name:

Hong

Once in the Prometric registration site, you must take a series of steps:

  1. Select the round green 'START HERE' button.
  2. Choose 'Locate a Test Center' or 'Schedule an Exam' - either one is fine. Then use the arrow-down box to select your preferred country.
  3. Follow the prompts and selections through to the list of test centres available in your country.
  4. To view actual dates and times, you must now create a Prometric client log-in. This does not commit you to a test registration.
  5. Once you have a Prometric client account, you can click on 'Schedule Appointment' next to the most convenient test centre. You will see a calendar with available dates for the coming 8 weeks.
  6. Select the date of your choice and available times will appear from which you may choose. This does not commit you to a test registration. Please note: be sure not to try and book your test on a public or national holiday - if such a date appears as available, please phone the test center and confirm that they will be open.
  7. Continue to follow the prompts if you are ready to complete your registration by making your payment. You will then receive confirmation via email.
