The Intra College level Freshers Quiz “QRIOSITY” organised by Akademos took place on 28 September 2020. The event was led and executed successfully under the guidance of Prof. Aryapriya Ganguly.
It was a successful one as 12 teams participated for a one-day event.
“Qriosity”- an EMFSS themed quiz competition where the students would either participate as a team of two or as a lone wolf. The competition consisted of two rounds viz. The Preliminary round and the Finale. The Preliminary Round served as the elimination round wherein participants were given 16 questions to be answered in 45 minutes via a Google form circulated before the round. The questions were a mix of General knowledge, World affairs and academia, presented in the form of audio/video clips and factual narration. 6 teams and a lone wolf were selected from this round to further compete in the Finale, where a series of 20 questions were to be answered by the finalists turn by turn, to be fair to all the participants.
The event took an interesting turn when the audience were also allowed to give answers in the final round.
The students brilliantly answered all the questions, which amazed the audience. The participants were very enthusiastic and appreciated the event curated specially for them.
The audience members loved the event so much that they demanded organizing events such as this in the future for them as well. The overall turnout and the enthusiasm of everyone involved stood as an exceptional source of inspiration and motivation for the organizing team.
The winners were awarded a certificate, as well as cash prizes as a token of encouragement and appreciation.
