QFI Quizzes on the weekend of 25-26 January 2014


On the weekend of 25-26 January 2014, along with IITM Open Quiz and the Tanishq Open Quiz, we will have two QFI events in the mornings.

On the 25th, we will have an open quiz by Chandrakant Nair. On the 26th, we will have the second annual QFI Avial Pursuit quiz, set by a team comprising Arun, Aniruddh, Yaggy and Matti. Both quizzes are conducted by people who have done some great quizzes in the past. Don’t miss out on them!

The two quizzes will be held in the CRC – the Class Room Complex, in the IIT Madras campus.
