Can you explain the OwlSmart Rewards System?

We wish to reward our users for their efforts and encourage them to revise consistently. Hence the reward system. For more details, please read here.

How is OwlSmart different from other e-learning providers and tuition centre online platforms?

A solid set of unique features allows OwlSmart to stand out. We call them the 4 A's. :)

  1. Accessibility

    OwlSmart can be accessed via Mobile, Tablet or Desktop. Your child can revise anywhere and anytime. You also don't have to be part of a tuition centre to access the OwlSmart database.

    We also offer Guardian accounts, allowing parents to effortlessly track their child's progress as they practice with the questions and tests.

  2. Affordability

    We believe that everyone should have a chance at accessing good quality revision resources. We have done our market research and have priced everything to be good value for money.

  3. Analytics

    There are hundreds if not thousands of primary school exam papers available for free to download on the internet. What good are those questions without someone to explain where your child's mistakes are and to highlight the areas which they need to improve on?

    This is the beauty of OwlSmart. All questions have answer keys with explanations, even for distractors. OwlSmart tracks the strengths and weaknesses of students as they attempt questions and will send you reports on their strongest and weakest topics to improve on.

  4. Add-Ons

    Our content managers are constantly adding questions to the system for our subscribers. What’s more, Our Rewards module provides motivation for our subscribers to exchange their hard earned OwlSmart points (based on answering questions correctly) for vouchers on popular brands, on top of gamification elements such as topics challenge and badges. As a paid subscriber, you will have complete access to all new features and questions at no additional cost.

How does the number of questions on OwlSmart compare to other similar online question platforms?

The number of questions listed on OwlSmart comprises only of individually crafted questions. OwlSmart is capable of permutating some questions for the purpose of AI-led adaptive revision, so the actual number of questions available is several times more than what you see, and way bigger than most other similar question databases.

The questions in OwlSmart are carefully curated by MOE trained educators, each with over a decade of full-time primary school teaching and PSLE marking experience. Each question is specially designed to test your child's understanding of a subject topic and will be very close to questions appearing in the actual exams.

How do I set an automatic expiry for my subscription?

On your student's subscription information page, click the expiration date and you will be prompted to select the subscription's expiration year and month.

What limitations would I have with a free trial account?

During your free trial, you will have access to all subjects but only a small pool of fixed questions in the database would be available. It would give you a good idea on the quality of the rest of the database. You will not have access to OwlSmart Rewards or Topics Challenge.

How does OwlSmart differ from free question papers online? (Including PSLE papers)

Thousands of primary school questions are already freely available online, but without proper answer keys and explanations. OwlSmart’s value comes from the synergised pairing of good quality questions with explanations, together with a slick progress analysis and reporting system. This provides a good framework and allows teachers/guardians to arrange revision of topics in a more organised manner tailored to each student.

Are you concerned with others copying your questions from your website?

All questions on OwlSmart are protected by copyright law. We reserve the right to take legal action for any unauthorised use or publishing of the questions on OwlSmart.

The questions alone are not sufficient for effective revision. OwlSmart’s progress tracking and analytical tools allows students and parents to instantly identify their weaker topics. No amount of question-copying can replicate that experience.

Does OwlSmart work on any browser?

OwlSmart works on most modern browsers, with the exception of Internet Explorer. We usually recommend using Google Chrome.

How do I get to the OwlSmart leaderboard and hall of fame?

The leaderboard is based on each student's effort and revision performance for the month, and is reset at the start of each calendar month. The entries in the leaderboard and hall of fame are refreshed hourly based on the following criteria:

  • Correct answer (first time): 10 points
  • Correct answer (repeated): 2 points
  • Wrong answer: 1 point
  • Eligible for ranking with at least 30 questions answered
  • Eligible for ranking only if number of correct answers is more than number of wrong answers

The hall of fame (coming soon) is based on the same metrics above, but will never be reset. It recognises students who put in the most effort and performs the best in their OwlSmart revision.

Who sets the questions in OwlSmart?

Many questions are adapted from exam papers of top schools and actual exam questions, including those from past PSLEs. Our highly experienced and certified teachers vet through every question and construct the model answers with explanations according to MOE/SEAB requirements.

OwlSmart is a great tool. When used consistently, we are confident that almost all students would see improvement in their understanding of topics and ability to answer exam questions.

You may contact [email protected] to make arrangements to pay via bank transfer from an ATM, or via mailed cheque. However, these methods typically take a couple of business days to process so internet payment methods are preferred.

My child has finished all the questions in OwlSmart. What else can we do??

Although this scenario is very unlikely, we do add questions on a weekly basis so that you would never run out of questions for long. Nevertheless, for health and sanity reasons, we recommend taking regular breaks between revision sessions. Don’t forget to redeem your OwlSmart Rewards Points into vouchers!

I have twins, can they share the same account?

It is technically OK to share the same account while its subscription is active if they use the system at separate times. Each account cannot have more than 1 test or practice session at any one time. Do note that you would not be able to accurately track each child's performance and the very useful topical analysis reports.

How does the rating score work? How can my child improve his rating score?

In essence, each student’s rating score increases when questions are answered correctly and decreases when answered wrongly. A child can significantly improve his or her rating score by correctly answering more difficult questions and making less mistakes.

Can OwlSmart be used on mobile and tablet devices?

All pages on OwlSmart can be accessed via mobile and tablet devices. We are working on developing an app for iOS and Android as well. Watch this space!

My child has completed PSLE, how do I unsubscribe?

To cancel a paid subscription, you will have to login to your guardian account via your guardian email. Select your student/child, click on "Subscriptions", and then click on "Unsubscribe". You will be asked to confirm and the subscription will be terminated immediately.

Are there any open-ended questions such as those from Science Booklet B and Math Paper 2?

While many of the questions on OwlSmart are MCQ-based, quite a number of the Science questions were adapted from questions in Booklet B and of similar difficulty, if not higher. For Math, we also have structured questions from paper 2 where students have to key in the final answers to the questions. The students can subsequently review the detailed model answer workings and explanation.

My child is heading from Primary 2 to Primary 3 next year, will I be charged the same monthly rates?

OwlSmart will automatically detect the change in primary school level and adjust your monthly rates accordingly. You do not have to anything except to acknowledge the upgrade when prompted at the year end. As always, you have the choice to unsubscribe from our system and will not be charged any further.
