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!

The non city-winner teams are from Bengaluru (MQ), Chennai (Memory Bank and QED), Mumbai (Travelling Pillsburys and Matunga Manram) and Dubai (The Mavericks). The organizers had pre-announced that teams from Dubai would only be considered in the ‘next 6’ category, and not as a city winner.

In Bangalore, the six teams who scored above 50 were:
We Are Like This (W)only – 72
Metaquizziks – 68
SJC Quizzers – 59
Forecasting Couch – 56
The Village People – 56
CIDs from Kerala – 52

“For more such team names come to Interrobang 2017” from Bangalore scored the highest among all college teams in the city with 41. “The Quizaders from Arul Mani Land” scored the highest in the school category in Bangalore with 19.

From international locations who took the quiz non-comp, we have received scores from Kuwait, which saw one team comprising Ramesh Athreya, Dr Boby,
R Karthikeyan and Rohan John record a score of 29 points.

All qualifying teams are requested to drop a note to venkyiimb@gmail.com confirming their availability in Bangalore for the semis on June 24. We need clear confirmation from the teams by May 31.

If any team is unable to make it to the semis, their slot will be offered to the next highest scoring team, starting with the team named Ingit Bergman from Mumbai.

Our congratulations to all the qualifiers and a big thank you to all the fellow quiz associations who organized this quiz at various locations.
