The events above can be set anywhere on that date - all you need is a proctor to receive and present the materials

This is a quiz with both academic and pop culture categories for individual participants.   Note the WQC has been moved to 5 Dec 2020.

Thanks for letting me know about this! I didn't do so well though; 75/240.

It is a difficult, diverse quiz balanced categorically, temporally, and geographically.  You beat me, I only got a 65, but realize you take the top 7 out of 8 categories for your score - in my case I dropped my Sport score.  The full table (maybe a few results trickling in) is at https://quest.quizzing.com/season/100016/quiz/100323

In that case I also drop sports, and end with 69/210

Heh, I got credit for two answers I didn't think I would, so my score is actually 71.
