More than a score of schools have sent the names of their participants for the 2008 International Competitions and Assessments for Schools-English (ICAS-English) which will take place on August 12, 2008. The response of these schools to the ICAS-English has been overwhelmingly great especially this competition is the first ever in the Philippines, developed by the Educational Assessment Australia (EAA) of the University of New South Wales and will be jointly conducted by the MTG and ICAS Philippines.

In ICAS-English, reading and language skills are assessed in a ranged of texts. Participants are required to locate, identify, interpret, infer and synthesize information in and about texts, focusing on the aspects of reading for meaning in literary texts, reading for meaning in factual texts, textual devices, syntax and vocabulary.

The venue of the competition for the Metro Manila area will be the Grace Christian College (formerly Grace Christian High School) at Sto. Domingo St., Grace Village, Quezon City. The contest venues for the other regions in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao will be announced later here at the MTG website.

The following are the lists of schools with their number of entrants/participants per level who will take the ICAS-English. The total participants as of the present is more that one thousand already.
