2. Review the results

When your child’s results are ready to be viewed, this step will guide you through how to access their results.

Parents: Looking for ICAS results?
Now that your child has sat their ICAS test, we realise how keen you both are to see how they went – and that it can be a little confusing for parents to know when to expect results.

To explain the process – once your child sits their test, your school typically receives your child’s online results for that subject 4 to 6 days after the final sitting day for the subject. Your school then receives your child’s certificate/s approximately 14 days later. Once your school has processed the results, it will then pass on your login details, giving you access to the online results and certificates.

For example, if ICAS Science ends on 26 August, your school will receive results around 1 September and certificates by 14 September. Your school will then pass on online results login details and certificates to you. Some schools may choose to pass on login details sooner, but this is entirely at the discretion of the school.

We know, it’s tough to wait it out for the exciting news! However, your safest bet is to assume your school will need the full 14 days from the final sitting day of an ICAS subject, before they share your child’s results.
