Rajiv D'Silva tops the Streams of Consciousness

At the culmination of what turned out to be an extended 10-month-long period, we have a clear winner for the Streams of Consciousness series – a dark horse named Rajiv D'Silva. With Top 2 finishes in each of the three streams, he is the undisputed Teacher's Pet, finishing with 16 Stars, 6 clear of the pack. Nitish, Shekhar, and JK finish with 10 Stars each – the lattermost creditworthy for having missed one of the streams.

A validation of the concept of the series lies in the fact that each of the final Top 4 came out a winner in one of the streams – Nitish and Rajiv tied for 1st place in Commerce, Doc was top dog in the Arts, and JK won the Science quiz.

At the end of the day, to paraphrase every sports captain and coach ever, quizzing is the winner, having taken its first tentative steps out of the gloom of the lockdown.

Here is the final Top 10 chart for the Streams of Consciousness extra-long-format competition:



A full listing of the results for the entire series can be accessed here.

Streams of Consciousness 3: Science - 20/Dec/2020 - results

Turnout for the Science stream of the Streams of Consciousness series was even better than that for the Arts quiz a month earlier, with 33 people answering the written Round 1. Luckily, we had anticipated that and printed extra question papers, and even then they barely sufficed.

By the time the night wore down, there were clear-cut divisions at the top. JK finished 1st with 158.5 points, warmly pursued by Rajiv at 135 points. Competition for places 3 and 4 was far hotter, with Delson finally failing to overturn Ajey's 2.5-point lead going into the Top 4. Ajey finished with 100, to Delson's 97.5.

Top 4
1st: J Krishnamurthi - 158.5 points
2nd: Rajiv D'Silva - 135 points
3rd: Ajey Patil - 100 points
4th: Delson Roche - 97.5 points

Positions 5-9: Nitish (81.5), Suraj (70.5), Viola (65.5), Doc Shekhar (58), Anjali (48.5)

Streams of Consciousness - solo long-format competition


Streams of Consciousness (SoC) is the Sunday Evening Quiz Club (SEQC)'s solo long-format competition for 2019-20. It will be held over three Sundays -- one each in March, April, and May.

The SoC concept derives from the understanding that different quizzers are good at different subjects, and will attempt to let each have their day in the sun. It will therefore, unlike our usual past solo series contests, not have elimination from one event to the next. That is to say, regardless of how you do on the first day of the 'Exams' (or even if you miss it), you can come back on the following days and show your mettle.

The quiz will be divided into three Streams -- mirroring those you choose for higher education: Commerce, Arts, and Sciences. Subjects covered in each Stream will reflect these major headings, but with a generous degree of flexibility.

Each day's performance will give participants points, and the aggregate of points at the end of the three Exams will determine individuals' final rankings.

The events are open to all.
