Solus Rex Semifinals on 22nd April, 2018

The semifinals of Solus Rex will be held on 22nd April for the top 25 from the gruelling 60 question prelims that happened in November.

As is traditional for Solus Rex, there will be certain specialist topics that they can be expected to be asked questions on in the semifinals.

The topics for this year are

1. Ports of the World
2. Birds and Animals of South America
3. Heads of States in the 21st Century
4. Sculptures and Statues

All semifinalists are encouraged to use the next couple of weeks to research on these topics, as they will play a rather significant role in the format of the semis. You may even find yourself earning a nickname like Songkran Maheshwar did (from the topic Festivals of Asia.) Or contribute to quizzing jargon as Solus Rex 2018 co-host Arun Hiregange did with Brodsky Face. (from the topic Winners of the Nobel Prize in Literature)

For all quizzers who aren’t part of the semifinals lineup, there is something in this for you too! The quizmasters Arun Hiregange and Thejaswi Udupa solicit guest questions on these topics, and the best questions, apart from being used with full credit in the semis, also stand to win book vouchers!

To contribute questions, please ping Thejaswi Udupa.

The qualifiers are:

1. Santosh Swaminathan – 35.75
2. Srinath Bhashyam – 28.50
3. Anustup Datta – 28.00
4. Preetham Upadhya – 27.50 (College)

Magister 2017

Magister 2017 is a solo quiz contest with collegiate and open tracks that will be held on Sunday, 29 January 2017 in Bengaluru, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Mumbai, New Delhi, Tezpur, Vellore, Baroda, Mohali, Pune, Mysuru, Raipur, Thrissur, Kochi, Warangal, Goa, Kolkata, Manipal, Kanpur, Pondicherry and Shillong.

The quiz will require takers to answer one hundred questions off a PowerPoint presentation from 11 am to 1 pm on Sunday, 29 January 2017 (with earlier starts in some venues). The quiz is the result of a partnership between the Karnataka Quiz Association and SJC Quizzers, the quiz club at St. Joseph’s College, Bangalore.

The setters are Prof. Rajeev Gowda, Arul Mani, Prithwiraj Mukherjee, Nagaratna ‘Partikal’ Patil, Avinash Thirumalai (in sublimated form), Rijul Ballal, Chirag Chittar and Abhijith Raghu.

Why Magister?
Once upon a time, every open quiz would have a sizeable college contingent in attendance and the Open circuits of India’s quizzing cities throve on the energy and dash of college quizzing. In many cities, though not all, this is a thing of the past. Which is not good news for open quizzing, or, indeed, for quizzing.

The simple idea behind Magister is to bring together the two rapidly diverging streams of quizzing–College and Open. The setters are college and open quizzers. The quiz has college and open tracks for competition. The questions themselves are an attempt to start up something of a conversation between open and collegiate quizzing.

You could thus say that what we want to see is a form of a Re-Open-ed Quizzing.

But what the Deccan is a Magister?
Magister comes from the Latin for mastery. That said, we must clarify that we are interested in more than quizzing as simple, masculine achievement.

The term magis is used in Jesuit thought to indicate the spirit of doing more, or giving more of oneself. For us, this name draws some attention to the happily out-of-syllabus character of quizzing. And indeed to the primary joy of quizzing, which is that of refusing to be a passive recipient of information, and choosing instead to celebrate an active curiosity in the world.

The persons who win this title in the college and open tracks will embody this idea better than our words can.

If you’ve enjoyed open quizzing, support this venture by turning up and taking part!

On-the-spot entries will be accepted in Bengaluru, and at the proctor’s discretion in other cities.

The Bengaluru venue is Xavier Hall, St. Joseph’s College (PG Block), Langford Road. Please text 9731214519 if you have any questions.

World Quizzing Championships on Saturday 4 June 2016

The 2016 edition of the World Quizzing Championships will be held in Bangalore on Saturday, 4 June 2016. The venue is the Command Hospital Auditorium, Bangalore. As this is part of an Air Force campus, it is advised that you carry some form of ID with you. Also note that the entrance to Command Hospital will be from Cambridge Road and not HAL Airport Road.

The event will commence at 3 pm, and requires the taker to attempt two packs of questions. Each pack contains four topics, and the taker is allowed an hour in which to attempt the questions–thus two hours for writing, and an extra hour for corrections and so on. The quiz is open to solo contestants, of all ages.

KQA will provide prizes for the top 5 finishers in the Open category,  and top 2 finishers in College, School (up to Std XII) and Ladies categories. In addition, each of the eight topic winners will get a book coupon. An entry fee will be collected at the venue to recover photocopying costs.
