Budding quizzers Siraj Sandhu and Ishaan Vijh,students of St Johns High School,proved their mettle and made their school proud by securing the second position in the National Finals of the Bournvita Quiz Contest (BQC).
St Johns first cleared the regional rounds that were held in Mohali by beating 50 teams,and qualified for the National Rounds in Kolkata. In Kolkata there were 29 schools.
Speaking to Newsline,Siraj said that it was teamwork that carried them forward to the finals. Ishaan is good with sports,mythology and movies while my strength is current affairs. We also got along really well and were enjoy quizzing,so there were hardly any tense moments.
Ishaan said that they did not prepare for the finals even after they qualified for it.We didn’t prepare for the quiz as such,we just like reading about the subjects of our interests and somehow that alone happened to take us through to the finals.
He also said that making it to the finals of the BQC was a dream come true.
