ICAS ACT North Shore Coaching College

ICAS Assessments (Belconnen, ACT)

Registration for 2021 ICAS Assessments™ are now open!

North Shore Coaching College is proud to offer the world-renowned ICAS Assessments™ to all students, provided their schools are not currently offering the ICAS Assessments™ that they intend on entering.

ICAS Assessments™ will be available in Digital Technologies, Writing, English, Science, Spelling Bee and Mathematics.

ICAS Assessments™ are an annual world class competition designed to recognise academic excellence for high potential students. These online assessments are designed to recognise and reward academic excellence. Students are asked to demonstrate a deeper, integrated, and thorough level of learning. To ensure an engaging and beneficial experience for all students, new ICAS Assessments™ are developed annually for each subject in every year level. All students will receive certificates of achievement. Highest performing students have an opportunity to win medals (subject to determination by Janison Solutions Pty Ltd ‘Janison’).

Registration to sit ICAS Assessmentsat North Shore Coaching College must be completed online, and is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Once a session has reached maximum capacity (i.e. Allocation Exhausted), it is at the College’s discretion whether additional sessions will be opened.

North Shore Coaching College offers past papers; up to and including the Year 2018, which may be purchased to assist your child in preparing for the ICAS Assessments. These past papers provide a valuable opportunity to gain assessment experience whilst acquainting candidates with the style and content of possible question types. Please order these past papers online at the North Shore Shop.

Registration is open to all students in the ACT who will not be sitting the relevant ICAS Assessment at their school. The ICAS Assessments will be held at the Belconnen Principal Campus only.
