Archives, archives and archives!
  • Last year, during one of the quizzes, I promised to myself that if I win the quiz, I would compile as many quizzes as possible in which I participated; something which went for a six last year due to my studies and verbal resistance from some of my dearest quizzer friends in Delhi. (As a matter of fact,one of my archives had helped some 'non-quizzing guys' immensely in a quiz which agitated some other 'regulars'... :P). 

    Luckily I won that quiz and I had to wait for my holidays to fulfill my promise. Though archiving is fun but it is NOT at all easy to make an archive of the quizzes which have happened an year or two back. Plus its important to cross-check the data to avoid confusion among the readers. But the whole process is quite rewarding if fellow quizzers benefit from your archives. 

    Well, I must confess that I did benefit in a way from the archives prepared by Ankur Bannerjee and Prateek Vijayvargia which were posted on this forum. Others like Shreyans Jain, Abhaas Mohan, Shikhar Gautam, Vidit Bhargava, Rishav Dey, Syed Murtuza Hasmi (Sorry if I missed someone) have been regular in putting up their compilations of the recent quizzes, but of late, this noble habit has decreased in magnitude, possibly due to ....(I leave it upon you to answer that.)

    This time I was able to compile some of the quizzes of Parnab Da/Cradle Sports in 2011. I did them before others keeping in mind that Mod Quiz '12 is going to happen soon. 

    The foll. files are there:
    1. CBSE Heritage India Quiz National Finals 2011
    2. CBSE Heritage India Quiz National Pre-Finals 2011
    3. CBSE Heritage India Quiz Zonals (UP)
    4. Mod Quiz 2011-Finals
    5. TAFS Quiz 2011
    6. CenQuest 2011
    7. IMS Open Quiz 2010


    I will be uploading more files soon!

    The first change:

    As promised, I am uploading some more files. This time I was able to compile QuizCraft's quizzes. Yes once again, keeping in mind the upcoming Columban Open Quiz. Though Quizmasters now dont repeat questions so often, but archives do help you get an idea about the format and type. Hope these files help you all: (Click on the name to download)

  • hey, thank a lot!
  • Hey thanks a lot Mukund for these!!!! very well compiled n presented. Most of d ppl lyk keeping d archives 2 demselves n nt sharing wid oders.
     Its so nyc of u 2 put them on d net. And im waiting for d oders. :P
  • Hey Mukund, Are you compiling Quizzes in which the Quiz-Master is Adiitya Nath or something related to that ??
  • The Noble Habit of Compiling Archives has decreased due to .. the lack of a priority to prepare and upload them. These days, there is so little time between studies and school that going to a quiz has become a challenge let alone compiling its archives.

    Thanks for this set though! :)
  • @Tushar: Yes. You should have checked the files. The QM is Mr. Mubayi or Mr. Savarkar.
