“Quest for Quizzing”
‘UNESQUO’, one of the primary clubs associated with sublime speaking and quizzing skills in BIT Mesra, organised the Quantum Quiz on 23rd August, 2017 in the Lecture Hall-1 at 5:30pm. The event was tailor-made to test each and every participant’s thirst for knowledge, retaining capability, organisation of thoughts, sagacious skills and various other aspects. Punctuality was indeed an aspect the club followed keenly, with the event starting at the promised time.
The difficulty level of the quiz increased with every subsequent round, with quizzing enthusiasts keeping the buzzers close to their hearts! The second round was a ‘Business Quiz’, consisting of questions related to the corporate world. The penultimate round was ‘Technical Quiz’, which demanded not just technical knowledge, but also the sense of quick judgment based on the clues that were thrown at the participants. The last round was named, ‘Pick Your Poison’ which consisted of six topics ranging from various spheres of quizzing like sports, history, ‘Incredible India’, from which the participants had to choose two topics.
At the end of the four rounds, the winner was decided on the basis of points collected during the course of the quiz. Hardly facing competition, the winners of this event were Abhayankar Joshi and Abhinaba Chakraborty(2k15). Yatharth Bhasin and Aman Mukherjee (2k15) were the runners up, followed by Subhomoy and Nishant(2k17).
The event was indeed a successful and a well organised one with the whole hall packed with audience throughout the course of the quiz. The response from the newly admitted 2k17 batch was indeed phenomenal, owing to the vast numbers of freshmen filling the hall. While we completely enjoyed this wholesome event, we hope to witness more such interesting quizzes in the future.
