Whilst not at all compulsory, it helps us enormously to have people paying in advance. You can do this via PayPal. Our PayPal account is payments@quizzing.co.uk - Thank you!

Hot 100

The WQC takes the place of the standard Hot100 paper for June. Ranking points are calculated as per normal though - i.e. your WQC score is converted into two-digits, representing your overall total (7 genres) as a percentage of the 2017 World Champion's score.

The monthly Hot 100 international quiz is a great training tool for the WQC as it's available at venues all over the country. Details can be found at http://www.worldquizrankings.com
