What is ICAS?
The International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) are independent skills-based assessments with a competition element. A new ICAS test is developed annually for each subject in each year level by subject matter experts. All ICAS tests are reviewed by experienced teachers to ensure that they accurately assess students skills and are relevant to what they are learning at school.
ICAS tests are sat at the student’s school and are invigilated by teachers under normal examination conditions.
John Colet School students in Years 3 – 6 may choose to sit ICAS tests.
