Announcing the Incredible India Quizzes 2019

The Incredible India Quizzes 2019, conducted by the Sunday Evening Quiz Club (SEQC), will be held on Thursday, August 15, 2019, at the International Centre Goa (ICG) in Dona Paula. This is the 10th year of the very popular competition.

As always, there are two editions. The Schools edition, for students of up to Std XII, will begin at 2pm. It is for teams of two, both from the same institution. Pre-registration is recommended, and can be done by emailing the names of both team members and the institution they represent to seqcgoa@gmail.com. There is no bar on the number of teams that one institution can send, and registration mails can be sent from an official institutional ID or from anyone's personal email. Pre-registration closes at midnight on Tuesday August 13.

The Open edition, scheduled to start at 5pm, is, as the name suggests, open to all. Students who take part in the Schools edition can participate as well. No pre-registration is required for the Open edition. Prelims for the Open will be taken individually, and teams formed on the spot based on scores in the Prelims.

Both quizzes will focus on topics related to India. There are no entry fees for either edition.
