Unlike all other schools in Bandung, and almost all other schools in Indonesia, Stamford joins ICAS Singapore rather than ICAS Indonesia. This means that:

  • Stamfordians sit the ICAS test TWO YEARS AHEAD of the test taken by others of the same age in Indonesia.
  • Stamfordians’ performance in ICAS is compared to Singaporean students taking the same test, NOT to other Indonesian students.

The Singaporean education system is considered among the world’s best. For example, Singapore was ranked top in the world for maths and science by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development in 2015. Indonesia was ranked 69th. 

These Stamfordians’ awards, therefore reflect their excellent performance on an international level. The meaning of the awards, relative to all students in Singapore who took the same test, is outlined below:

  • High Distinction: top 1%
  • Distinction: top 11%
  • Credit: top 36%
  • Merit: top 46%
