About ICAS and SIMCC

UNSW Global is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with the Singapore International Math Contests Centre (SIMCC) to offer online ICAS assessments to students in Singapore, similar to the opportunities that students in participating schools enjoy.

UNSW Global Assessments has been involved in educational assessment in Australia since 1967 and is one of the largest independent providers of school assessments in the Asia-Pacific region. ICAS assessments have been unrivalled for over 30 years and continue to lead the way in over 20 countries.

SIMCC is one of the largest academic contests’ organisers in Singapore and throughout Asia. They are committed to offering more opportunities for all students to gain international recognition through academic competitions. As a result of this new partnership, in 2019 SIMCC will offer ICAS English, Mathematics and Science.

Both organisations are committed to providing participating students with the tools to unlock potential, drive academic success and reward student achievement through medals and certificates.

The ICAS Assessments series is designed to assess your students’ ability to apply classroom learning in new contexts, using higher order thinking and problem-solving skills.

ICAS Assessments have been unmatched for over 35 years and are continuing to lead the way, by moving online, in Singapore starting in 2019.
