The inaugural edition of the IITB-BQC Quizzing Open was held this Sunday at the new Lecture Hall Complex. It was a joint effort by Literati – The IIT Bombay Literary Arts Club and The Bombay Quiz Club. The event kicked-off with College General Quiz which witnessed participation from IIT-B, IIM-A and ICT amongst others. Eight teams qualified and the finals were very closely fought. It was a good show by IIT Bombay which had three teams in top five.
The College Sci-Tech quiz, set by Eeshan Malhotra and Mukund Madhav, started immediately after that. It was brief, fast paced and had some really good questions.
This was followed by Sports Quiz which was open to non-college participants as well. It was one steam-roller of a quiz, with only Omkar Nene from institute and his mixed team qualifying for the finals. Even though the quiz went on a little longer than the audience would have preferred, they witnessed very high quality of quizzing.
And finally The Open General Quiz; 30 questions in the eliminations, covering everything you could possibly think of and other more obscure stuff. Unfortunately, no team from institute qualified for the same.
