Minds racing, heartbeats increasing, adrenaline flowing, and an immense amount of love for quizzing in the air!
Such was the scene at Jesus and Mary College, on 28th August 2018.
The Commerce Association of Jesus and Mary College along with Curiosus, the Quiz Society, in collaboration with JIMS Kalkaji, organised the biggest business quiz of the year, Comquest’18.
The Chief Guest for the event was Mr. K K Sharma, Senior Advocate Supreme Court and the Guest of Honour was Ms.Urvashi Agarwal, Partner KPMG.
With more than 500 registrations this year, the quiz was more competitive than ever before, and our beloved quizmaster, Mr. Adittya Nath Mubayi, from Quizcraft Global, left no stone unturned to leave all the participants’ thoughts provoked.
The event started sharp at 10 a.m., and after the preliminary round, only 6 teams qualified for the finals. The final round tested the participants in each sphere, to make sure only the best wins the business management quiz. The rounds included tests on general knowledge, facts, logic, as well as audio and visuals. The adrenaline in the room when the buzzers were pressed and when each team gained or lost points just cannot be explained in words. The audience was also quite active throughout the quiz and was awarded prizes for the same.
The 1st position in the quiz was secured by Jayant Verma and Mayukh Nair. They were awarded a prize of ?20,000, along with winning trophies.
Rajeev Singh and Ishaan Watts secured the 2nd position, winning a cash prize of ?10,000 as well as the trophies.
All the participants displayed great respect and love for quizzing, which is why each year the event is organised, and is better than before.
This year indeed, Comquest was bigger and better in every sense!
