Quiz for the Quixotic

This event is for school students and consists of three rounds. The first two rounds will be written rounds conducted via Google Forms. The highest-scoring participants from each round will qualify for further rounds. The final round will be conducted as a live online event.

Round 1: 3 December at 10.30am

Round 2: 3 December at 11.00am

Round 3: 4 December at 11.30am, live event via Zoom

Lit Maze

This is a group event (teams participate in pairs) that will have three rounds. The first round is to solve a puzzle (the puzzle contains a famous literary character) and identify the literary work. The second round is to identify the mythical creatures found in literary works. Here, a PPT will be prepared with one mythical character on each slide (pictures or features of the mythical character will be given). Participants must identify the characters and they will be assessed based on the time that each group takes to complete it. The last round is to identify the literary work and the author using the clues provided. Here too, a PPT will be prepared containing different clues (quotes, images, character names, plot, etc.), and the participants will be given access to the PPT. They must identify the literary work and the author from the given clues.

Round 1 and Round 2: 4 December | 10.00am to 11.30am

Round 3: 4 December at 2.00pm, live event via zoom
