I had a great time in the 2013 UNSW-ICAS and my surprise was amazing-Two medals!
ICAS stands for International Competitions and Assessments for Schools and is an examination that is recommended to see your progress in learning. You could get a medal if you earn enough points and beat enough others. Medals are exciting, right? No doubt. No cash prize, but medals are exciting to collect. Everyone knows that. Actually, the most important thing is to do your best, not just go. Boost this by practice-like the competitors in my school do. Practice makes perfect! I wasn’t even expecting a medal! Guess I was more ‘Genius’ than I thought. I would also encourage students to compete in the next year’s ICAS, and those who competed, but failed to earn a medal to try again, and practice as soon as possible. Keep trying-you’ll reach the point of success someday.
