Sorry.. don't have.. refer to this link https://eaa.unsw.edu.au/icas/awards


Found this definition here: https://student.unsw.edu.au/grade
This may be more for their local students but the H.Distinction & Distinction grades do correspond to the grades that my child obtained with reference to the marks scored.


HD

High Distinction: An outstanding performance; mark range 85-100. Indicates that the student has produced outstanding work, and has demonstrated a high level of understanding across the entire content of the course.

DN

Distinction: A superior performance; mark range 75-84. Indicates that the student has demonstrated superior ability to consider the course and its assessment requirements from a number of perspectives and to explore their interrelation.

Used to be in Feb or March timeframe for the test to be done in July / Aug.

If the school doesn't send these out, it probably means they have stopped participating in this UNSW paper.

Last yr, I emailed the form teachers to enquire & it was confirmed. So we applied & did the test separately as a private candidate.

I'm surprised - I'd have thought it would be quite lucrative considering the number of students I saw at the exam hall a couple of years ago.

Maybe UNSW changed vendors for the Singapore ICAS - you might want to contact the UNSW folks directly and see if they have appointed some other exam center. https://www.singapore.unsw.edu.au
