Lone Kid & Lone Cub 2019 – Results

The Karnataka Quiz Association held two solo quizzes for school students on the morning of Sunday, 20th October at the Institution of Agricultural Technologists, Queen’s Road, Bengaluru. Both quizzes were set & hosted by Gautham Shenoy, Dr. Avinash Thirumalai, Nagaratna Patil and Sriprada Sadagopan.

About 50 enthusiastic students turned up on a Sunday morning to take part in the Lone Kid (for students of classes V – VII) and Lone Cub (for students of classes VIII – X) quizzes. Turnout was a bit lower than usual though, as these quizzes have been attracting almost twice that number for the last few years. It was also disappointing to see fewer than 10 girl quizzers on the day.

A written preliminary round was held as per the standard practice; the change made this year was that a 1/3rd of the prelims featuring audio-visual questions was made common to both sets of quizzers. The prelims were very competitive, with a couple of students missing out on qualifying by narrow margins – 1/2 a mark in some cases, or number of star questions answered in others. The top eight students from middle school (classes V – VII) qualified for the Lone Kid finals, and the top eight students from high school (classes VIII – X) qualified for the Lone Cub finals.

Suraj Pai of class VI from Aurobindo School was crowned the Lone Kid Champion 2019. He took an early lead in the finals and never let go. Not that there wasn’t stiff competition from the other finalists – just that it seemed to be one of those “so close, yet so far” occasions. A little bit of boldness, in taking a guess even when not fully sure of the answer, would definitely have helped. We had a sibling pair from NPS, Rajajinagar qualify for the Lone Kid finals – Ananthashreyas of class VII and Anaghashree Nair of class V. Anaghasree Nair took home the prize for best girl quizzer.

Lone Kid standings:

  1. Suraj Pai, Std. VI, Sri Aurobindo School: 140
  2. Deepak K. Nayak, Std. VII, Presidency RT Nagar: 110
  3. Ananthashreyas, Std. VII, NPS-Rajajinagar: 100
  4. Vedant S. Shinde, Std. VII, Presidency RT Nagar: 80
  5. Nikilesh GK, Std. VII, Deens Academy: 70
  6. Shamanth Shastry, Std. VII, Presidency North: 50
  7. Sukrit S,. Std. V, NPS-Yeshwantpur: 40
  8. Anaghashree Nair, Std. V, NPS-Rajajinagar: 30

The Lone Cub finals were a much more closely fought affair, with the lead continuously changing hands and the top three not clear even when the final round began. Dhyan Vyas of class X, NPS Indiranagar narrowly pipped Nidish P (class VIII, St. Paul’s School) and Kushagara Agarwal (class VIII, Presidency NLO) to be crowned the Lone Cub Champion 2019. Nidish and Kushagra ended up tied at the same score; after 5 rounds of tie-break questions, Nidish claimed 2nd place with Kushagra ending up 3rd. Anjana Karthik of class VIII, Sri Kumaran’s School took home the prize for best girl quizzer.

Lone Cub standings:

  1. Dhyan Vyas, Std. X, NPS-Indiranagar: 115
  2. Nidhish P., Std VIII, St. Paul’s: 110
  3. Kushagra Agarwal, Std. VIII, Presidency NLO: 110

KQA Collegiate Grandmaster Quiz – Results

The Karnataka Quiz Association held its 16th edition of the Collegiate Grandmaster Quiz on Sunday, 20th October 2019. After a common written prelims, separate finals for 10+2/PUC students and undergraduate college students were held.

PU/college quiz in progress.

A post shared by Karnataka Quiz Association (@kqaquizzes) on

The KQA Senior School (10+2/PUC) Solo Championships had an interesting field in that several high school students (VIII-X) qualified and did well even though they were technically punching above their weight. Some version of this might have occurred in the Collegiate Grandmaster Finals as well. The schoolkids needed to get back home after a long day, and that was perhaps why the upsets were fewer.

Aaditya Kannan had run away to 120 points after Santosh Swaminathan finished his set. At the end of the second set, he was still in the lead, albeit by a somewhat reduced margin of 50 points. Abhineet, Samuel and Rohith Paul put up determined fights instead of giving up, and made a lot of ground in this section. The first two are both high school students–KQA congratulates them for this solid performance.

Anusree Ashit took home the prize for the best woman entrant.

The final placings:

  1. Aaditya Kannan (SENIOR SCHOOL) PSBB LLA 170
  2. Abhineet (HIGH SCHOOL) BGS INTL. 120
  3. Samuel (HIGH SCHOOL) ST. JOHN’S HS 113
  4. Rohith Paul (SENIOR SCHOOL) NPS KMLA 105
  5. Anusree Ashit (SENIOR SCHOOL) PSBB LLA 98
  6. Sanjana Kartik (SENIOR SCHOO)L MAIS 95
  7. Adithya Acharya (HIGH SCHOOL) CHRIST ACAD. 93
  8. Aaditya S Rao (HIGH SCHOOL) CHRIST ACAD. 65

PUC lone wolf finalists and winners – and look, they got certificates this time (hi @one_yand_aaf_gurlphrend)

A post shared by Karnataka Quiz Association (@kqaquizzes) on

Julian Costa of IISc won the KQA Collegiate Grandmaster title for 2019.

He qualified for the 12-question shootout after the finals a little ahead of a close field comprising Saishyam Srikanth, Rohith Paul and Aswin Anilkumar, but then went on to build up a more substantial lead in a format that required strategising for a low-scoring round. Rohith, a Class XII student, did very well to finish third, after missing out narrowly on a podium finish in the Senior School finals.
