The International Competition and Assessment for Schools (ICAS) Mathematics Competition run by the University of New South Wales is an annual competition participated by students from Australia and 20 countries globally. Tintern Schools had students from Year 7 to 12 take part and some exceptionally commendable results were obtained: 5 Certificates of High Distinction (top 1%), 42 Certificates of Distinctions (top 10%), and 81 Certificates of Credit (top 30%). All students receive a certificate and an individual student report indicating which questions they answered correctly, their total score as well as their average compared with the rest of the students in the State. The student report is also useful for highlighting student strengths and weaknesses in skills and processes and progress compared to any previous results. Further personal details regarding individual student performance can be obtained from http://www.eaa.unsw.edu.au. Select Get Student Results from the top left corner of the screen and then enter your TAP-ID and Password (PIN) which are found at the bottom of the letter accompanying the certificate.
