I understand that for this year 2019 there will be no independent candidates allowed to sit for exams and allowed only through schools. I was wondering why the school hasnt send out invitations this year. Looks like they have dropped it. This is really unfortunate as my DS was keen on preparing this year ☹. Any other assessments recommended similar to ICAS which he can try?

You may want to confirm with your school whether it is no longer participating in ICAS. Since a few years ago, some schools have reduced their participation or dropped it totally.

You can still purchase ICAS past years papers to let him try (answers are provided).

How old is your DS? You may want to check with his school what Math Olympiad competitions they are participating and see if he is interested.

Thank you coast for the details. Yes I have confirmed with the school admin that no invitations given out this year. May be I will mail them and ask more details on it. Yes he participated in SASMO. But looks like his school is not participating in other olympiads and many recognized olympiads say only can participate through school. He is in Primary 4.

I just received an email from SIMCC ( Sasmo organiser) on unsw / ICAS competition registration. Details in link below, for those interested. Looks like SIMCC has taken over as the organiser, test venue at NUS School of Computing.

Can someone please advise what is the value of doing the UNSW tests?

Anyone knows why schools have dropped the tests?
