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 school based practice sessions to start a week or more before the exam. This will include accessing the online practice test so they become familiar with how to navigate the assessment. However, the majority of the exam practice will be completed as homework. Students will be given 4-5 old exam papers to work through independently at home. Students are welcome to collect more papers if they want. Online practice papers are also available to purchase through the ICAS website.
Please note that the exact sitting date for each exam will be set closer to the time.
