What is ICAS?
With the International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) by University of New South Wales, students can learn, grow and reach their full potential. ICAS quality skills-based assessments give a deeper understanding of students’ learning needs and standards in Digital Technologies, Science, Writing, English, and Mathematics.

Advantages for sitting ICAS-Maths and AMC assessments every year
All participants receive a worldwide-recognised certificate (High Distinction, Distinction, Credit, Participation) and a detailed report showing how they perform in answering each question, with comparison to wider statistics. Using this data, parents and teachers can easily track the progress of student learning through each year level, build up strengths and target weaknesses. This way, students are able to continually improve and move closer to achieving their highest potential.
