ICAS Awards and Recognition
Awards and Recognition
Each student that participates receives a Student report on the back of a Certificate, which is awarded on the following basis:
|Award||For each year level in each state or country|
|Principal's Award||Principals may wish to award this certificate to students who have made progress that may not have been recognised otherwise. The awarding of Certificates is entirely at the discretion of schools.|
|Participation Certificate||for all remaining participants|
|Merit Certificate||the next 10% of participants|
|Credit Certificate||the next 25% of participants|
|Distinction Certificate||the next 10% of participants|
|High Distinction Certificate||the top 1% of participants|
The percentages allocated to awards are approximate and will vary according to the number of students taking each test and the distribution of their scores.
Students with the top score in each subject in each year level are awarded a medal and a medal winner’s certificate. It should be noted that students must have written the relevant assessment on the official ICAS sitting date and the result must be judged as sufficiently meritorious to be eligible for a medal.*
* Terms and conditions apply. Home school students and some regions are not eligible for an ICAS medals.
Virtual Medal Celebration
We would like to congratulate and recognise the outstanding achievements of the 2020 ICAS medal winners. Being awarded an ICAS medal is a significant accomplishment, and though we can’t celebrate together in person this year, we would like to encourage all ICAS medal winners to our virtual medal celebration in early 2020.
We would like our medal winners to be part of this event by sharing their feelings about winning and ICAS medal and why they enjoyed participating in ICAS. Be creative and post the photos or videos on our Facebook page. The ICAS team would like to be able to use as many of these photos or videos as we can in our virtual medal celebration.
