:congrats: Vlim and ds. Can feel you joy! We too caught the little surprise last year when ds brought back the letter. You will receive an official invitation card from NSW which you need to fax in or call to confirm your attendance. There will be a buffet dinner treat too. Enjoy!

The MO tests are a lot more difficult compared to the ICAS ones. So based on that I suppose a Platinum in SMOPS would be more prestigious. But given that you have to be #1 in Singapore to get a medal for ICAS that's pretty prestigious too. Just a different level I suppose.

:congrats: My DS is also privilege to join this ICAS medal club, but his is for Maths. But we won't be attending the ceremony as he will be away on school trip.
