ICAS – Mathematics

At Snowy Mountains Grammar School ALL of our students compete in the ICAS Examinations, unlike other schools where only the top few students in each year level are selected to represent the school. The data gained from all of our students participating in the ICAS competition assists our teachers to develop and tailor their teaching to support all of our students to learn better.

For a student to receive a Merit, they must be placed within the top 46% of the students in the country who sit that examination paper for that year group. Given that many schools select only the top students of their year groups to compete, a student who is awarded a Merit is actually performing much higher than the average because they are competing with the top students in the country. Therefore, we are really impressed and pleased with the results of our students.

Merit – Top 46% of the Country
