ICAS Competitions

Senior students are invited to participate in the International Competitions and Assessment Australia (EAA). EAA is a not for profit organisation owned by the University of New South Wales (UNSW). ICAS provides an opportunity for all students to gain a measure of their own achievement in an external assessment situation. It provides teachers, parents and students with comprehensive reporting of results in English, Mathematics, Science, Spelling, Writing and Computer Skills. All students receive a certificate and an individual student report indicating which questions they answered correctly, their total score as well as their average compared with the rest of the students in New Zealand. The student report is also useful for highlighting student strengths and weaknesses in the skills and processes in the ICAS they participate in. 

Certificates are awarded for each year level in New Zealand as follows:
  • High Distinction to the top 1% of entrants
  • Distinction to the next 10% of entrants
  • Credit to the next 20% of entrants
  • Participation to all other participating students

The tests are as follows:
  • Computer Skills 
  • Science
  • Writing
  • Spelling
  • English 
  • Mathematics
