You take the test in your own time. It takes an average of 40 minutes -1.5 hour to complete. It must be done in a single sitting so make sure you have allocated at least an hour and a half without disturbances or phone calls / messages.
You are strictly not permitted to ask anyone to help you with the test. But you are permitted to use the internet as a resource. Take your time on every question, do not guess and always check your answers. You may find some questions challenging, especially if you have been out of school for a long period of time. For example, you may not remember certain numeracy skills, adverbs or grammar. It is essential that you don’t ask someone to assist you with these questions, or to check your answers. The answer for every question must reflect your individual ability to ensure that you don’t enrol in a course that may be academically overly demanding as this could potentially lead to an unsatisfactory or stressful training experience.
You are permitted to use the internet as a resource to research the skills and formulae you might need during the quiz. You can also request support from us if you need help logging in and using the LLN test platform.
Computer or tablet, speakers, internet, access to your emails, pen, paper to us the link we send you, calculator, paper and pen.

To ensure fairness and equity, we permit applicants a maximum of 3 attempts to pass the LLN test.
Fail 1st attempt: You can request a 2nd attempt and complete it in your own time. We will resend you a new LLN Test Invitation.

You may be able to do this through TAFE or with a tutor. To request your 3rd & Final attempt, you must email us stating you have undertaken remedial training and are requesting a 3rd & Final LLN test. The 3rd & Final test must be completed at the campus with a staff member present, or via an alternative approved invigilation method. We will resend you a new LLN Test Invitation.
