  1. I have a doubt,where can v register for the General Quiz by Dinesh Krithivasan, Ashwin and Manu Sudhakar which is held on 13th August and for General Quiz by Vijay Sarathy, Sreeram and Sankhya which is held on the same day….
    Waiting for reply…

    1. Prior registration is not required. You can just show up and register at the venue on the day of the event.

    1. All the quizzes will be at the same venue. Venue is being finalized. We’ll announce it soon.

    1. The quizzes (other than the sports, entertainment and books quizzes) will be general in nature.

    1. The general quizzes will also feature questions on sports, entertainment and books whereas the specialist quizzes will focus specifically on those areas of interest. If you’re curious about the questions that typically get asked in a general quiz, you could drop in on one of our fortnightly meetings. Details of these weekly meetings will be posted in this blog and on our FB page (https://www.facebook.com/quizfoundation/?fref=ts).

  2. Is there a prize for the best college team? If so, are cross-college teams eligible for the same?

  3. What about the registration fees ?
    Whether we can join as Audience to give exposure to my son ?

  4. We will update the post with details of the registration fees and venue shortly.
    Please feel free to attend the quizzes as an audience member or a participant. There are no registration fees for audience members (and only a nominal one for participants). Looking forward to seeing you and your son on the 13th and 14th!

    1. Hi Sathya,
      There’s the College of Engineering canteen. Besides that there’s a small shop selling snacks and coffee right outside the venue. Not sure about availability on a Sunday. Would advise you to carry light snacks (to be consumed outside the auditorium) and bottles of water. We have a long day of quizzing ahead of us today. Hope to see you there.
