Quizzing has always been a tradition at IIM Calcutta. It comes as no surprise that ICQC, IIM Calcutta’s official Quiz Club is among the oldest quizzing societies in the country. It goes back to the days of 'seeding quizzes' during the early batches, some of which used to be conducted by the likes of Neil O'Brien - the father of quizzing in India. Typically internal quizzing activity at Joka starts in July with the Fresher’s Quiz (hosted by alumni) and goes on right up to the end of February, with the Farewell Quiz. In between these two are several events, including the IIM Calcutta Quizzing League, the open quiz at Intaglio, quizzes at Carpe Diem, themed quizzes in association with other clubs, occasion based quizzes etc. The quiz club also hosts quizzes across the country in association with other quizzing societies.
This time around ICQC starts off its proceedings with the online event “India’s Top Quizzer” in association with Central Bank of India and Testfunda.com. The event is a set of 7 quizzes across 6 fields viz. World, Technology, Business, Sports, Movies, India and Mixed Bag. So if you are a veteran in sporting knowledge then you can stand to be a Daily Winner. However, strive hard and excel in all areas and you will be conferred upon with the title of “India’s Top Quizzer”. Prizes worth INR 50000 are up for grabs. There will be a daily winner and runners-up and an overall winner and two runners-up.
The quiz is open for all age groups, all backgrounds, including corporates, college and school students. So you have a vast competition spread across the country and across all age groups. Be aware that your competition may be sitting next to you on your dinner table or you may be reporting to him at office. Hence to become India’s Top Quizzer you have to beat India!!
