QUIZ REPORT
On the 24th July 2012 students from Classes 8 - 12 of St Xavier's Collegiate School Kolkata participated in Quizzard, a quiz organized by The Times of India and Metro Dairy at the St. Xavier's College Auditorium.

Over 80 schools took part in three sets of prelims which was concluded by a final of six rounds. Of the three Xaviers' teams that took part, one of our teams, featuring Anshuman Mohan of Class 12 and Shourya Dasgupta of Class 11 emerged winners and were victorious in winning the trophy.

It should-be noted that at the end of the fourth round our boys were no where near even third place, but suddenly came alive in the fifth round to briefly leap-frog everybody to the first spot. It was in the sixth and final round that Anshuman and Shourya literally ran away with the Quiz to finish comfortably ahead of the second placed team by over 50 points.

Our boys are currently looking forward to more Quizzes in the coming months.
