Re-sitting the assessment

All candidates must achieve the minimum standard for each component of the assessment.

If you fail to acheive the minimum standard for one or more components of the cognitive testing you are eligible for a second attempt of the failed component/s.  Candidates have the opportunity to book a re-sit after a minimum waiting period of three (3) weeks and within a maixmum window of six (6) months from your initial exam date. Candidates are only required to re-sit the components they have failed. All other components that have met the QPS minimum standard remain valid. 

To book a re-sit, candidates will need to log into the registration system and follow the instructions for booking a re-sit, via the ‘re-sit failed sections’ link at the bottom of the page.

The candidate registration system will automatically display dates that are available for you to book. Re-sit exams are run concurrently with the full sit exams and available at all venues.  If your preferred location is not available, or has reached capacity, please check availability at other venues. 

Candidates have six (6)months to complete a re-sit. If it is not completed in this timeframe, candidates will be required to re-sit the full assessment again.

Candidates who do not pass all failed assessment components on their second attempt will need to wait six (6) months from their re-sit date before re-registering with ACER.  Upon re-application, candidates must sit the all components of the exam again.
