After putting the general public through their paces back in November 2018, the top 16 masochists qualifiers are in the crosshairs of the QMs with rounds of both general quizzing and specialist topics to determine the finalists. It’ll be a hoot to watch!

Quiz for pre-determined qualifiers – audience welcome.

1230PM: The KQA History Quiz by Urmila Lakshmanan and Rajat Gururaj

We will leave ‘what is history?’ to historians like E.H. Carr, but the issue of ‘what is history quiz?’ can be more readily answered by our QMs. A history quiz for and about all ages.

It is a prelims/finals quiz for teams of four or fewer. Open to all.

3.30 PM: Pop Ki Kamai by Sai Ganesh 

The 9th edition of the pop culture quiz by Sai ‘city’s finest QM’ Ganesh is here! The annual quiz on movies, music, comics, TV, theatre, internet, and an ominous ‘…other forms of pop culture.’

The format may have a few complications that are Sai ‘well-received’ Ganesh’s stock-in-trade, but it is basically a direct finals quiz for teams of four or fewer. Open to all.

KQA yearbooks will be available at the venue.

Open Quizzes on Sunday, February 17, 2019

11 AM: The February Open (Ruckus) Quiz by the Sreedevis (Sreyashi, Preyoshi and Debashree) – after the great success of the first such quiz in December, the second ruckus quiz of the KQA calendar has arrived!

What is a ruckus, you ask? No more #foreveralone. Farewell to feeling in-team-idated because you can never find teammates. Everyone present gets randomised into teams on the spot. It’s that simple. Just bring yourself (and a pen). No prelims either. Isn’t that just the best?

It is a finals-only quiz with teams to be formed on the spot. Open to all.

3PM: The KQA Science and Technology Quiz by Venkatesh, Rajagopal and some Schrodinger’s QMs who may or may not be contributors. As the name suggests, it’s a quiz tinged with science and technology (beyond using the magic of Powerpoint and projectors to run it).

“It’s great fun.” – Werner Heisenblurb.

It is a prelims/finals quiz for teams of four or fewer. Open to all.

KQA yearbooks will be available at the venue.
