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.
Apologies for my ignorance, but what is "ICAS" and "SMOPS"
International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS)
Singapore Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools (SMOPS)
