Participation is invited in teams of two for the Schools edition and for individuals for the Open edition. Entry for both quizzes is free. For the Schools edition, both team members must be from the same school, from any level up to Class XII. There is no restriction to the number of teams from each school. For the Open quiz, teams of three participants will be composed on the spot, based on the points scored in the preliminary round.
