For P3, Computer Skills and Science results are out online. If your child has sat for ICAS papers previously, refer to those previous certificates issued to see the ID and pin to login to check this year's results if your schools haven't given out the certificates.

For P3 Maths, does anyone has an idea regarding the raw score for high distinction?

P2 also have? Mine first took this in school when he was P3. They have office in Singapore and I understand can buy past year papers from them.

DS1 took most of the papers in P3 (Maths, Science, English, Writing). Tests in mcq mostly and the results will come back showing detail which answered right/wrong, how the child fare in comparison with others his age.

There is a test for writing (at least P3 had) but Ds didn't do well cos it was persuasive writing not creative writing. He had to write an essay to convince the reader about something (can't recall). Topics should change and it was only that one year he took.

Didn't prep DS at all and we just took the results and orh...cos these are Oz exams, I'm not sure how applicable they are to SG. Not going to spend time/effort on this.
