About the quizzes

UK Quiz Circuit Individual quiz - 240 question quiz split across six genres ('Art, History & Culture', 'Civilisation', 'Entertainment', 'Lifestyle', 'Physical World' and 'Sport & Games'). Players all get UK Rankings points for this event.

Brows quiz - 50 questions each of highbrow and lowbrow questions, it's up to the player how much of their time they devote to each from the overall 50 minute allowed for the whole paper, containing 100 questions. Each half of the quiz is scored separately out of 50. (viewtopic.php?f=28&t=602)

Hot 100 - 100 questions with an international flavour and World Rankings points. (http://www.worldquizrankings.com/)

Entry fee for the QUEST Grand Prix Quiz and the Hot 100 is £12.50 (half price for current full-time students with proof of their status). The venue hire is £20 which is to be split between players equally (so likely to around £3-£4 each). It is very helpful if you can pay via PayPal. PayPal payments should be made to payments@quizzing.co.uk

IMPORTANT

Because question sets will be sent out to the volunteer organisers, it is ESSENTIAL that you register by MIDNIGHT on Tuesday 31 October. The papers will be printed off overnight and sent out first thing in the morning to ensure they arrive in plenty of time.

All registrations for events must be made via this Facebook page or the Quizzing event page.
