Give your child the best chance of success for ICAS

Our preparation tools allow your child to practise for ICAS in the most authentic way possible.

You can choose from past papers that contain genuine ICAS questions and answers, online practice tests on the RiSE+ platform, and short sample tests. All are developed by the same team of experts behind the ICAS assessments.

Tool #1: Past papers

ICAS past papers are downloadable PDFs that contain former ICAS question and answer sheets, giving your child first-hand experience of the assessment.

They are the broken down by subject and are available for a broad range of year levels.

  • Get your child familiar with the language, style and difficulty of ICAS questions
  • Pinpoint knowledge gaps or skills to practise
  • Check responses against the answer keys provided, with new “skill descriptors” for 2018 papers to identify exact skills tested for each question
