Your Starter for 10….

Trials for the 2016 University Challenge Series are taking place this week!

This week Keblites will trial for their chance to take on Paxman face to face in the ultimate quiz for students that know random facts like what the letters U.S.B stand for and which US state is the third largest after Alaska and Texas!

It has been decades since Keble students managed to battle through the TV rounds and reach quizzing glory in the final… the famous teams of 1975 and 1987 wait with bated breath to see if their legacy shall finally be upheld, and if current Keblites will once again take their place among the University Challenge heroes of yesteryear.

The trials are at 8 30pm on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th in the Jean Robinson Room (Arco Basement). Come along – the written test won’t take longer than 30 minutes, all scores will remain anonymous and all you need is a pen! Each college can send four students plus a reserve to the next round, and from there looks to bag a spot on the TV rounds.
