In Term Three, students in Years 7 and 8 Mathematics, Years 9 and 10 Mathematics Extended and selected students in Years 11 and 12, participated in the prestigious ICAS Mathematics Assessment. This year the ICAS Assessments moved online, a change that reflects a sector-wide transition to computer-based assessment.

Students from Somerset College achieved excellent results and those students whose achievements were outstanding were rewarded with Certificates of Merit, Credit, Distinction and High Distinction.
