But what are we supposed to do to participate?
you participating this time also?
Here are more details:
virtuosovidit: what's your email id? I couldn't find it on your blog! BTW, can you please upload/send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the video that you sent last year for Tech Grandmasters for registration?
- The video is quite unimportant. Look at this one:
That's the video by the team that won the 'so called' quiz last year. So just shoot anything, it really doesn't matter what you shoot, because once you are on the TV rounds, They won't show this video.
P.S. You can contact me @ email@example.com (I know that's a funny name for an email-ID, but i created this when i was 9!
: the details will come soon. btw you will have make a video with your partner giving your introduction.
: would love to but not sure yet. well i'll say its not a 'so called' quiz...maybe it is not completely tech based and has some general elements too but i really liked the concept and format.
Hey, mind if I mail you for doubts or queries...?
BTW What is the format like before the TV Rounds?
Before the TV rounds, AFAIK there is only a preliminary round. And you do have to send the 180 sec video and details, etc. BTW, are you 16+?
A single preliminary round...? Interesting. @
I turned 16 recently, but my team mate isn't. Would that pose a big problem?
- WHy would I mind? I'm ready to clear any doubts and queries here too. :
See, There will be a written round in various cities, and then they will select teams, which will include college, school and corporate ones. The School teams get pinned against school teams in the first round.
To get a glimpse of what the Written round looks like, have a look at this:
- Yea, even i think i was a bit harsh when I called it a so-called quiz. Its actually good in the later rounds.
P.S. Apart from the hideous process of getting onto the television, it should be a great adventure for all of you who wish to participate.
Do they really take the age limit seriously? Can you also please elaborate on the '
hideous process of getting onto the television
Vidit (in a mail to me) :"You can't go if you are less than 16."
Haven't you read the terms and conditions?
^why the ":P" ?
OhK, I think I'm gonna have to find another team mate. @
Are you 16 yet?
-You can't make an inter-school team I guess. And yes they take the limit seriously.
I and my team mate are from the same school.
Well, it seems like I'll give it a shot...
Did you register online? Should I register here -
Theere are 2 Upload Video buttons, one under Candidate 1 & the other under Candidate 2. So do we upload the same video at both of those places, or do we need to have two separate videos?
Is it necessary to make a video this time? How do we register? Only online? And When will the preliminary test be held?
And When will they call for the TV rounds if we get selected? I have my Board Exams from March 2nd to March 15th
Go Murtuza, go! You're certainly really good at tech quizzing and btw I read somewhere that they would adjust their tv shooting if the participants are having exams at their time or so. so go ahead and register
yes what is about the vedio thingy?????????
- I didn't register. As I can judge from the link, you will have to shoot two separate videos. Also It is necessary to shoot video.
