Quiz is a very novel discipline and has been gaining immense popularity in schools and colleges across India. Stage quizzes are meant to not merely check the general awareness of a child, but more importantly, encourage them to work out the answers. The genius in a quiz is not just in knowing the right answer but also in connecting dots and arriving at the nearest guess. Keeping this principle of quizzing in mind, Mayo College Girls’ School considers the activity of quizzing as an integral part of a student’s school life. The quiz society organizes several quizzes at inter-house and interclass levels on a regular basis. To promote deep understanding of specific subjects, subject based quizzes are also organized. In the beginning of every term, screening tests are organized to recognize the potential of students in the discipline and the high scorers are then sent for various inter-school quizzes. We, at MCGS, firmly believe in the idea that nobody loses in a quiz. Losing in a quiz is a victory in itself because it means that you have learnt more than the official ‘winner’. This is the spirit that keeps us all going.
