The Sports quiz was conducted on the 14th of September and was hosted by Sidhanth and Neha. It was the 10th quiz of Sedes Minerva and it surely isn’t short of a milestone.
The prelims comprised of 20 questions from the wide world of sports and it was very exhilarating to see these sports fans putting their thinking caps and digging in their existing knowledge of sports in an attempt to answer the questions. The quiz masters were delighted as some of the questions were set in a tricky way but still some teams managed to crack the questions.
The top six teams made it to the final. The final comprised of 4 rounds which were innovative and at the same time managed to amaze our participants. The 1st round of the final involved guessing the logos of the sports teams. The 2nd round of the quiz involved our participants to think deeply about the league they revere so much, the money spinner Indian Premier League(IPL) where they had to list out the winners of the previous 11 editions. The 3rd round made the participants delve deeper into the unknown territory where records are broken, where legacy is created, and heroes worshipped, ‘the stadiums’. Yes, the participants had to guess the stadium, where these sports are played and it was endearing to see them get tricky ones right.
The last round focused on trivia and some general knowledge on sports where the quizzers had to put a little funda to arrive at the answer. Altogether, it was a good quiz. All sports fanatics echoed the same. Quizzing is not always about winning and we here at Sedes Minerva strongly believe in this. This might have been our 10th quiz, but we’re looking forward to conduct more quizzes and see more participation.
Thanks to all for religiously turning up for our quizzes.
Congratulations to all winners. Keep up the good work. Cheers. Happy quizzing all.

The Fantasy quiz was conducted by Sedes Minerva in collaboration with Pierian Spring. It was hosted by Yashas and Joel of Christ University. The former was the Ex Student Co-ordinator of Pierian Spring and has won multiple quizzes with Joel at college level and many other fests. Considering the fact that they are such amazing quizzers, the quiz already had generated ahype and our participants were not at all disappointed. The questions in the prelims were 20 well researched and tricky ones as our participants had to really dig deep in their fantasy enthusiastic minds. The quiz witnessed the participation of students from all streams and it surely was a pleasant sight, the least to say. The top six teams from the prelims made it to the finals and it surely was a difficult job for picking out the best teams as there was a tie among many teams for the same place. It was then the star questions which came to aid and threw up our sixth finalist.
Our quiz was graced by the presence of Reva ma’am, Vidya ma’am and Anu ma’am, who enthralled everyone with their ingenuity in knowing all answers to the questions.
The finals comprised of 5 major rounds which really tested the knowledge and presence of mind of all our participants as none of the questions could be thought off in an easy way. The dumb charades round was really exciting as it had our teachers and audience in splits on some of the antics of our participants enacting to their fellow teammates a particular description required. The connect round also had some really unusual questions which were not straightforward. The non-enthusiasts of fantasy also got to learn a lot. The rounds were very innovative and were nothing like what a quintessential quiz of fantasy would be.
All in all, a few of the participants and spectators admitted it was a legendary quiz and something they hadn’t seen before. The quiz concluded with a brief photo session of the winners and our quiz masters who had done a wonderful job. They really did justice to the topic and it is a quiz that’ll always be remembered for the right reasons. This also happens to be our 5th quiz in successive weeks and we are looking forward to conducting more of such beautiful quizzes. Thanks to all those who ardently participate in our quizzes and congratulations to all our winners. Keep up the good work and hoping to see all of you in our future quizzes.
Onward and upwards, let’s make this happen.
Happy quizzing everyone.

I know!! I know!! They exclaimed, but this time the raised hands did not belong to the usual participants instead the teachers who ask students to raise their hands to answer. The faculty quiz was conducted by Sedes Minerva and hosted by Nikhil Chandra on the 3rd of September on account of Teacher’s day. It was a sight to watch the teachers in the room full of vim and vigor take the roles of enthusiastic quizzers and show utmost glee in expressing all their knowledge gained throughout the years. The intriguing questions in the quiz had the teachers’ brain cells tingling and brought out the best expressions on their faces. Questions whose answers included the kiki challenge brought out the fun side of the teachers, with one of the teachers whistling to the tune. The quiz brought out the competitive side of the teachers and showed that they do not lack enthusiasm one bit and can be incredibly vivacious. Though the quiz didn’t see much participation, the teachers present made it worth not missing.

Lecture contest being one of science forum’s most intellectual and exciting events, was held with immense enthusiasm and zeal on 31st August 2018. With a set of fixed topics to choose from each science subject, the participants gave it their best shot, to get through the preliminary round held in the previous week and make it to the finals. Students presented their inventiveness and ingenuity with great passion before the judges by sharing their views on the designated scientific topics. The students who put across their topics with eminence and caliber in a given time period of 5 minutes, besides giving valid answers to the questions put forward by the crowd, emerged as the winners.
Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice and therefore, this event provided a platform to exhibit the vast knowledge and information within a student, and thus proved to be extremely informatory and enlightening.
