2018 EXAM DATES
Science - Tuesday 29 May
Spelling - Wednesday 13 June
English - Tuesday 31 July
Mathematics - Tuesday 14 August
Every year some Year 4-6 students from our school participate in ICAS exams (International Competitions and Assessments for Schools).
The exams we participate in are Science, Spelling, English & Mathematics.
Who are the exams for?
They are very challenging exams, designed for above average achievers.
If you or your child are interested but unsure please talk to the classroom teacher. They may have a view on whether ICAS is a good choice for your child.
Preparing for exams
Children can expect practice sessions to start a week or more before the exam. During that period they should complete 4-5 old exam papers independently at home.
They will have a small amount of time daily to meet as a group, practice exam papers, mark work and have the chance to ask questions about any difficult problems.
However, the majority of the exam practice will be completed as homework.
Registering for ICAS
There will be a charge for sitting the exams (Science, English & Maths - $9.50 for each and $11.50 for Spelling).
If your child is interested in taking part in the exams please fill out the registration form (right) and pay the exam fees at the school by Friday 6th April (We will only be ordering exams for those students who have paid).
