Students who achieved the highest score in each year level and subject took home an ICAS medal, acknowledging their hard work, dedication and perseverance.

Chief Executive Officer of UNSW Global and Pro Vice-Chancellor (International) of UNSW Sydney, Mr. Laurie Pearcey proudly commented, “UNSW has been a pioneer of data driven learning and ICAS has empowered teachers, principals, and coordinators with the data they need to steer their efforts in the right direction.”

More than just a regular assessment, ICAS is designed to assess students' ability to apply classroom learning to new contexts using higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills. For 35 years, ICAS has been challenging students to master the skills they need to take on the world.
