ICAS Assessments are online voluntary assessments, administered through UNSW Global, and designed to recognise and reward academic excellence. These exams are of a higher order thinking and problem solving so this might look similar to what you'd expect in extension classes or gifted & talented programmes. They are standardised in exam conditions and also help prepare some students for exams, more relevant in some schools over others. There are over 1 million students completing these assessments across Australasia and parts of SE Asia each year!
