If you choose to sit ICAS at a JEM testing centre, booking your sitting date and time is mandatory. Please make sure that all details are correct as these will be printed on the ICAS certificate upon completion of assessment and used for certificate postage. 

Important Information:

Students wishing to sit ICAS at a JEM testing centre must:

• Be currently enrolled in an Australian school.
• Participate in the year level they are currently in at school.
• Confirm that their school is not participating in the ICAS Assessments™ for the subject they are seeking to participate in through a JEM Testing Centre.
• Register and pay for a scheduled available session,  students will not be granted entry if they have not pre-purchased a ticket.
