I conducted a quiz!!

I just returned home after conducting a quiz at college. It was um... not a success, but an average performance...

17 teams had registered, out of which only 5 turned up. Our college showed its brilliance by sending two classes to an IV on the day of an intra college cultural. Meanwhile we received news that each event should definitely have 6 finalists. We were at a loss as to what to do. We tried going and calling those buggers from their respective classes, but the guys had all common sense and had stayed at home, while an all girls team claimed to be working for the symposium, while all they were doing was staring at the windows desktop.

So, ultimately we ended up calling a few of them furtive second years who'd cut class and were roaming around, gave them answer sheets, and started off with the damn prelims thing. I think I set it a little too easy, having underestimated my college.

We selected six of them buggers and conducted the finals. Raja Deepak and Navneeth and Rafi were among the finalists. Finals went well, except for that part were we forgot to call the staff incharge to the event, and actually called him only halfway through. Luckily he happens to be a really nice and easy going person, and he didnt hold anything against us. This man is an example of a really educated person...

The Mech guys came first, IT second, Raja and Co. third.
A few people said the quiz was good with a grimace. Most others averted their faces.
Not bad for the first time eh?

Credit for my quiz must be given to Krishna, Vinod, Visu, Hari, Harish, Sriram, Seshu, Mahesh, and Vijay, from whose quizzes I stole questions. Well, ordinary artists copy, great artists steal.

Credit must also be given to Prashanth, who was invaluable in his support he rendered to me. We both sat and finished off the quiz without even meeting up once. Hail internet! Sathish also deserves mention for being my faithful powerpoint operator.

May the Force be with you.

Sundar.

I think Raja would have come first but you were jealous and reduced his score. I have faith in him.

Sundar said...

He would have if he hadn't mixed up Nero and Firefox.

Gud to know somethings like this have been taken up by a select few at least as opposed to the moronic majority in college who only think about bunking for SJ Suryah movies or pairin up in the backbenches.. keep it up kid.

Mahesh said...
