An Independent Exam Board To Help Schools Globally
For Schools and Teachers
Imagine a world where teachers don’t have to spend countless hours creating and grading exams. A world where they can focus on what they do best: enriching a child’s learning experience. At our examination center, we’re dedicated to making that world a reality.
Teachers often wear many hats throughout the year – planning and delivering lessons, grading homework, assessing student progress, managing the classroom effectively, testing and examining to name a few. With so much on their plates, they may not always be able to dedicate as much time to creating and grading exam papers as they would like. That’s where we come in. We are dedicated to taking the stress around creating and grading exams away from teachers so they can dedicate their time and energy to helping their students learn and grow. Schools or teachers can contact us for the following services:
- Creating homework worksheets
- Grading homework assignments
- Creating topical or cumulative exam papers
- Grading exam papers
- Providing teaching training sessions
If you are a school or a teacher and are interested in any/few/all of the above services,
kindly reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org

FAQs (for Parents and Students):
1. How can MathVision Exam Board (MVEB) help students?
It’s quite simple, really. We help you with the test taking. The thing about test taking is pretty much the same as with everything else: the more you practice, the better you will be at it.
The underlying premise is this: learning and understanding the content of a subject will only get you that far. You’re going to need just a little bit more, that extra push, if you want the right results.
The MVEB is all about practicing taking tests. You register to take an exam, and in a controlled and timed environment, you take it.
That’s when the real learning happens.
- You identify the real difficulties you face in an examination scenario.
- You discover new ways to manage your time
- You confront and dispel all examination-related anxieties.
That’s three birds with one stone.
2. Why should you attend the MVEB?
We understand that not every child learns at the same pace. And so we try to smoothen the learning curve by easing you into the exam-taking process.
We rate our tests based on their difficulty level (Level – 1, Level – 2 and Level – 3). A child struggling to keep up can start with Level – 1 and then move his way up. Just like in a video game.
These exams with their incrementing difficulty levels are designed to build your confidence.
For students who are stronger in a specific subject: regular testing will keep you on your toes. Greater speed, greater accuracy, better understanding of how to allocate your time – that’s what you need to go home with. And that’s why you need the MVEB.
3. How does the MathVision Exam Board (MVEB) ensure QUALITY of the tests?
We’ve been tutoring students for a while now. 15 years in Singapore. And for 17 years before that, in Mumbai. Throughout this time, we have always focused on rigorous testing as it is one of the most effective ways to gauge a child’s progress. We therefore have experienced teachers who have been creating and grading papers for a long time. Seeing how useful this has been for students, we decided to formally introduce the MVEB. Another thing that differentiates us is we have seen what concepts and what kind of questions typically stump students since we have been doing this day-in day-out. We will use all our experience from the last 17 years to create high quality exam papers.
4. Students of which schools can take these assessments? What subjects are covered?

6. Where is the MathVision Exam Board Headquarters?
MathVision Exam Board is located at B1-06 to B1-10 Tekka Place, 2 Serangoon Road, Singapore.
7. If a student is not in Singapore, can he take a test at the MVEB?
Although we are based in Singapore, we have assessments for any child studying in any school and following any curriculum anywhere in the world!
Step 1. Email your requirements and difficulty level to firstname.lastname@example.org
You will receive your test paper within 24-HOURS in a PDF format.
Step 2. Complete writing your test and send us a SCANNED copy of your answer sheet.
Step 3. The corrected answer sheet will be emailed to you in the next 24-HOURS.
8. How can a student schedule an examination?
Let us know a day in advance. Text us at: +65 88683475. Make sure to include in your text the student’s Name, Grade, School, Topic and Difficulty Level at least one working day before the desired date. That way we can ensure we have a test waiting for you by the time you come in.
9. What is the time duration for the test?
The actual test can be for a duration of 1 hour, 1 hr 30 min or 2 hours depending upon the subject and the topic.
However, we expect the child to be present at the centre 15 min prior to the test. This 15 min is split into 10 min of preparation time and 5 min of concentration time.
10. How long will it take for the papers to be graded?
The papers will be graded within 24 hours and can be collected physically for students in Singapore from our MVEB Headquarters (concierge) or it can be scanned and sent to students who are outside of Singapore.
11. What factors will go into grading the exams?
In addition to the final answer, there will be several factors that will go into the final score.
Handwriting – in our experience, we have found that a lot of careless mistakes can be easily avoided by simply writing neatly so every exam will have 5 points dedicated to handwriting.
Step-by-step solution – how a student arrives at a solution is equally, if not more, important than the final solution itself, therefore we will only give full points for a question if we feel there is enough evidence in the working that you have understood the concept clearly.
Use of correct Key words in Science / Econs / Business Test.
Diagrams to be drawn using ruler and pencil.
12. What are the charges for the test?
To know about the charges kindly send a WhatsApp message to Mr.Divesh Shah at: +65 84442320. Make sure to include in your text the student’s Name, Grade and School.
13. Can I take the test at home instead of coming to the MathVision Exam Board Headquarters?
No, MVEB does not allow for such a provision.
However Grade 10 & 12 can collect past year papers from respective departments to practice at home.
The main reason is that tests conducted at MVEB are done under strict exam conditions and when the test is done at home your child may be prone to various external distractions like mobile phones, visitors etc.
Such factors will ultimately interrupt the preparation process thereby affecting the effectiveness of writing tests.
There is no way your child could be distracted at MVEB, since we will collect their mobile phones and return it to them only when they have finished writing the test and all the corrections have been done. There will be invigilators during the duration of the test.
14. My child performs well in school. But he always panics when it comes to writing tests. Do you think MVEB can help?
If your child is anxious about tests then MVEB is the right way to get rid of it.
Anxiety or panics occur when the child stresses much on finishing the paper on time and due to the fear of scoring less marks.
The best way to overcome such hurdles is by helping them manage their time wisely and by motivating them to get rid of the misconception of writing tests.
Our concentration time of 5 mins before the test will massively help to compose them, thereby wiping out the apprehension for tests to a greater extent.
15. I always hear my child say that he is well prepared for the school exam and prefers to study at home rather than going to the centre. What do you suggest?
It is good that your child is very confident.
But as a parent, it is your duty to ensure that your child’s confidence is well reflected in the test as well.
It is equally important to make sure that your child has sound conceptual knowledge.
Exposing them to testing tools is the most primitive way to measure your child’s preparedness rather than just letting them study for hours together.
16. I notice that my child makes quite a lot of careless mistakes. What is the point in writing test after test?
In what way will MVEB help?
Practice makes perfect!
MVEB’s way of practice is slightly different.
Right after the first test, the subsequent tests will be modified accordingly.
In the first test, if your child makes mistakes in the topic “Functions”, then the second test will contain questions from “Functions” and questions from the topic opted for the second test.
Likewise, the third test will comprise of the questions from the topic chosen for the third test and the topics in which mistakes were committed in the first and second test and so on.
The testing process continues in this manner and the final test will cover all the weak areas spotted from the previous tests.
This will eventually help your child in eliminating the mistakes.
Our test centre works in tandem with the respective departments. Your child’s weak areas will be communicated to the corresponding department and the department heads will ensure that your child best understands the concepts when he/she comes for the usual session at Mathvision.
17. Is it possible to talk to my child during the test? I need to check something with him.
We are sorry. Your child’s mobile phone will be collected as soon as he/she reaches the test centre.It will be returned only when the entire testing process is done (writing the test, marking the paper and discussion of corrections)
i.e. the mobile will be returned only when he is about to leave the centre.
This firm action is carried out in order to ensure that your child is not distracted by any means of external factors, so that he gets to focus only on the test.
In case of emergency, please contact our main desk at xxxx.
18. Why should I send my child 15 min earlier than the scheduled test time?
From our experience, we have seen many kids who get anxious thinking about the test. And due to this anxiety, they tend to forget what they have learnt.Hence we will give your child 10 min of preparation time in which they can independently revise all the concepts and formulae.
Another 5 min of concentration time will be given during which they can calm themselves down.
This will further help them in directing their focus towards the test.
Also our test coordinators will brief about the exam techniques like double checking the work,reading the questions carefully, showing legible working etc.
Hence, we expect the child to be present 15 min early.
19. Can my child leave the centre if he finishes a 1 hour long test in say 40 min?
We will not encourage this, as most kids tend to rush and finish the paper without even crosschecking the answers.
We always insist the kids to double check the paper again and again so that all careless mistakes can be spotted and corrected. This practice will make double checking as a habit and in turn will help in the actual exam as well.
20. My child is finding the tests too easy. Can they be more challenging?
Of course! We can customise the test to be extremely challenging and to provide food for thought.
21. Can I get some test papers for my child to do at home?
The test papers are to be strictly done at the MVEB under perfect exam conditions.
We will not provide any customised test papers to be carried home.
22. What are the other tests you conduct?
We also conduct a wide variety Reasoning and IQ tests like
- Abstract Reasoning Test
- Deductive Reasoning Test
- Inductive Reasoning Test
- Spatial Reasoning Test
- Mensa Test
- Quantitative Reasoning Test
- Situational Judgement Test
- Numerical Reasoning Test
- Cognitive Reasoning Test
- Mental Math Test
These are special tests and we need one week notice to arrange these tests.
The abstract reasoning test is also called the conceptual reasoning test. It measures the student’s ability to identify patterns, logical rules and trends in new data, integrate this information, and apply it to solve problems.
The line makes a clockwise movement and the arrow moves anticlockwise
DEDUCTIVE REASONING TEST
Deductive reasoning, is a valid form of proof. It is, in fact, the way in which geometric proofs are written.
It is the ability to arrive at a conclusion from previously known facts. In other words, the answer is derived from a given set of rules which were already proved to be correct
A latin square has two important properties:
- A row or column never contains the same number twice
- Every row and column contain the same numbers
A full latin square is shown below
In the question below, which number should replace the question mark?
INDUCTIVE REASONING TEST
Inductive reasoning is the skill to find the answer based on a set of observations. In itself, it is not a valid method of proof. Just because a person observes a number of situations in which a pattern exists doesn’t mean that that pattern is true for all situations.
An inductive reasoning test most often presents sets or series of figures where the objective is to predict the next or missing figure.
SPATIAL REASONING TEST
Spatial reasoning or spatial visualization ability allows you to visualize three-dimensional images in your mind and to mentally manipulate these images and twist and turn them into the shape you want. Spatial reasoning is important for generating solutions in areas such as architecture, engineering, science, games, etc.
MENSA IQ TEST
Mensa is the organization who accepts only those who score in the 98th percentile on an IQ test. Mensa is the most well-known, most prestigious and oldest high IQ society on the planet.
QUANTITATIVE REASONING TEST
The Quantitative Reasoning test assesses the kid’s basic mathematical skills, understanding of elementary mathematical concepts and the ability to reason quantitatively and to model and solve problems with quantitative methods.
Amy is training for a race. She runs 10mph and completes the track in 151.2 minutes. Her cousin Helene completes the same track in 3.5 hours, how much faster was Amy?
SITUATIONAL JUDGEMENT TEST
Situational judgement tests are a type of psychological aptitude test that assesses judgement required for solving problems in real time situations. It assesses the student’s judgemental and decision making ability.
Stan is working as an administrator at an investment bank. In three months the branch will change its banking information-system. What is the best response Stan should take in order to respond to this change?
a. Refer clients and staff members to employees with more experience in the system.
b. Stan should turn to his supervisor every time he has an important question.
c. Stan should take time to take the online course and read the system guide.
Answer: c. Being prepared and adaptable to the situation
NUMERICAL REASONING TEST
Numerical reasoning tests the candidate’s ability to interpret, analyse and draw conclusions based on numerical data provided in facts, figures, graphs or tabular form. The skill needed to solve the questions include the ability to analyse trends in graphs, ability to perform estimates based on data provided, basic arithmetic operations and critical thinking.
What is the increase in % of the registered business in Harare between 1920 and 1980?
MENTAL MATH TEST
The mental math test helps in assessing the kid’s mental math ability. In other words, it is a test which is done without a calculator. This helps in training the brain to perform arithmetic operations at a greater speed.
The test is all about answering a set of questions (addition, subtraction, multiplication,divison etc.) within a given time limit.
Remember no calculators are allowed !
