The Centre for Law and Policy Research (CLPR) is excited to announce the 5th edition of ConQuest: India’s Premiere National Quiz on the Indian Constitution, History and Politics.
Over the last four years, ConQuest has become the largest quiz and educational activity celebrating India’s constitutional history and politics. Over 8000 students have engaged with the previous editions of ConQuest.
ConQuest encourages undergraduate and graduate students from the natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, humanities, and law to engage with the Indian Constitution, law, politics, history and current affairs.
Given the ongoing pandemic, there will be a few changes to this year’s edition of ConQuest. Firstly, it will be held completely online, allowing participants from all over the country to join us. Secondly, we will not be conducting the Regional Finals; instead, we will conduct Knockout Rounds which will match the top 8 teams from each Regional Preliminary round against each other.
We will begin with Regional Preliminary rounds conducted on our customized tech platform. The top eight teams from each Regional Preliminary will move on to the Knockout Rounds. The top two teams from each of the four Knockout Rounds will be in our Grand Finale, held in late October.
Who can participate?
Undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines from a recognized University/College in India. M.Phil/Ph.D students are not permitted to participate.
What is the format of the quiz?
It will consist of four Regional Preliminaries, four Knockout Rounds, and a Grand Finale.
The four Regional Preliminaries will all be conducted on one weekend, in different time slots. This will be a written quiz. The eight highest-scoring teams from each preliminary will move on the Knockout Rounds.
In the four Knockout Rounds, the eight highest-scoring teams from each Regional Preliminary will compete against each other. The top two teams from each Knockout Round will move on the Grand Finale.
The Grand Finale will consist of eight teams in total. This will be conducted live on Zoom.
