Asian Quizzing Championship (AQC) 2015, Goa edition

Date: Sunday December 6
Venue: International Centre Goa (ICG), Dona Paula
Time: 9.30am to 1.30pm (reporting time 9.15am)
Proctor: Kanchan Gatward
Flavour: General
Participation: For pre-formed teams of four. Open to all, entry free.

This quiz has a complicated and long-winded format. It will be run in three parts: Part I is a 160-question written paper to be answered in 90 minutes. The 160 questions will cover eight categories: Entertainment, Media, Culture, Lifestyle, Sports and games, Science, World and History. This is to be taken by all members of the teams individually. The top three out of four individual scores for each category will be tallied for the final team score.

Part II of the quiz is a 50-question projected quiz, to be answered by the teams together.

Part III is a 60-question projected quiz, to be answered by individual members of the teams by rotation.

The final standings of the quiz will be determined by the cumulative scores of all the teams across the three parts.

Last year's question sets are available here for review:
Part I
Parts II and III

NOTE: All participants should bring their own pens and backing boards, and be at the venue at least 15 minutes before the event begins. We will start at 9.30am on the dot.
