MindSweep 2017 –Overall Rankings

286 quizzers from across 9 nations came together to write MindSweep 2017.

The quiz was won by Pat Gibson with a score of 131.

Jayakanthan (India/Chennai) takes second place with 119. Thejaswi Udupa (India/Bangalore) takes  the third spot with a score of 114. The Women’s title goes to Anne Hegerty with a score of  111.

Among the topics, Gibson won two of the four (Arts -33 and Sciences-34) outright.  He tied for top-score with Anne Hegerty in Social Sciences (32), and with Santosh Swaminathan in Living (32).

36 individuals finished with single-digit scores. As far as we are concerned,  each of them is a champion, equal to Pat Gibson, for the feat of having tried.  This choice of words will make sense when you compare them to all those lords of quizzing who chose to fink at home with their tails firmly lodged between their legs:-)

The questions are up for download on our Quizzes tab.

KQA thanks all sister quizzing organisations that helped with venues and local publicity, and each of the proctors for a great job.
