All participants have to take the test at the Exam Centres they are registered. It’s not possible to attend Owlypia at home or in any other place.

BRIEF SUMMARY: The Owlypia test is taken online using a smartphone, tablet, laptop or a computer which must be connected to the internet for 90 minutes. It is comprised of 100 multiple-choice questions. 80 questions cover the favourite subject category and 20 questions come from the Common Ground. The test is strictly individual and takes place with no outside assistance or accessory of any kind (book, dictionary etc.). The test is supervised by an invigilator or a member of the exam centre staff who guarantees its proper conduct.

Important Guidelines

  1. By entering the Owlypia, the students agree to abide by these rules and the decisions of the Owlypia contest, without appeal.
  2. OWEX invigilators need to take attendance and let us know if anyone is not present at your OWEX via email to info@owlypia.org.
  3. Pedagogical supervision is requested at all times while Owlypia is being taken.
  4. It is strongly recommended that students of the same school/institution start Owlypia Online at the same time.
  5. All questions are multiple choice. However, the order of the questions and answer options are randomised so that no other participant will be able to see the questions or answers in the same order.
  6. OWEX invigilators need to arrange contestants with a seating plan so that contestants taking the Owlypia from the same subject are not close to each other.
  7. Exam Centres should provide secure and good internet connection for the participants. Moreover, students are recommended to have 3G/4G connections on their phones just in case.
  8. For Owlypia, participants receive their individual usernames and passwords to login individually in their emails. Moreover, access links and codes will be also available to OWEX representatives.
  9. Owlypia assumes that the candidate is responsible for all infrastructure requirements, power supply and the Internet connection. Students will have to ensure access to a smartphone, tablet, laptop or a desktop computer.
  10. If in any circumstances, the candidate is unable to complete the contest within the allotted time, the completed answers will be taken as the final submission for evaluation.
  11. The questions cannot be copied and/or conveyed or shared online, in written or recorded form, or in any other manner with anyone.

Code of Conduct

  2. No external help from books, online resources, mobile or parental guidance should be taken while taking Owlypia.
  3. Contestants cannot use electronic or printed dictionaries to look up anything.
  4. Before the test, students must close all programs or apps except the Owlypia browser window. Contestants cannot open any other browsers or windows by the end of the test.

  8. Contestants are not allowed to carry any study material during the test.
