>>> The Publisher's of the ICAS Exam papers have made the decision not to print the 2019 papers. Therefore Abacus Books only has very limited papers available from years 2018 and prior.
As an alternative for practice in multiple choice type questions for literacy and numeracy, we suggest you consider the NAPLAN-style tests series. Search NAPLAN on our website or contact Abacus for advice <<<
