I sent an email to EAA..they confirm entry into the ICAS can only be accepted from registered schools. EAA will only accept student entries from the school at which the student iscurrently enrolled. EAA is unable to accept parent requests to enroll their child in ICAS.

So if ds sch does not participate, he will have no opportunity to experience or any exposure to this..

I think UNSW stated that the tests are meant for benchmarking for their research study....of course they have to give ranking to students who took part in order to encourage participation

that explains why not many schools look highly on the UNSW certs

Hi jedamum,

Now that term 4 is near end, you should have received by now, dd school has also progressively given out certs and reports to participating students and the last one was received last month. As you said, whether good or bad, it is still a piece of effort after all, I agree with vlim that you should feedback to the school teacher.

My son has received the eng cert a few weeks back. He did not take the science NSW test. So go check with the teacher for the cert tomorrow. You can also check the NSW website. I remembered they do indicate the date for releasing the results for the respective subjects.

I find it odd as UNSW sci result was the first to be given out :scratchhead:
