When should I sit the LANTITE?

There are four LANTITE test windows per year. Curtin University's School of Education recommend that students sit their LANTITE tests once familiar with the requirements of the tests.
  • If you are a bachelor's degree student, this will be in the second year of your course
  • If you are a postgraduate student (graduate diploma or master's course), this will be in the second half of the first year of your course.
The best source for information about the LANTITE is the ACER website. The ACER website provides further information about:
  • How to register for the tests including test window dates and opening and closing dates for registration.
  • How to prepare for the tests including practice material that provides sample questions for both the literacy and numeracy components and the format of the tests (e.g. areas addressed, number of questions)
  • Sitting the tests - including permitted testing aids, information about test centres and remote proctoring, and misconduct.
Please make sure that you read the information on the website thoroughly and carefully, paying particular attention to the section on misconduct as ACER does not permit any appeal against the consequences of misconduct.
Once you have worked through the practice material, if you identify areas that you'd like to review or refresh (such as reading comprehension, numeracy, taking tests) please email the LANTITE coordinator, Dr Audrey Cooke, who will provide you with resources that may help you address these areas.
After reading through the information on the LANTITE website, if you have further general questions, please email
