About IQA Asia

IQA Asia is conceptualised by Dr Anurakshat Gupta who is an avid quizzer and quiz master. He has been part of the International Quizzing Association (IQA) from its days of inception. IQA is an organization that aims to promote, organize and standardize Quizzing. We focus our efforts on making this game acceptable and accessible for everyone irrespective of their gender, region, religion, language, race or culture. IQA has a global presence. IQA has already launched its quizzing activities in North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe and Asia. The flagship program of IQA is the World Quizzing Championship, an annual event that determines the World Champion in Quizzing.

Objectives of IQA Asia :

  • To make the game of Quizzing inclusive and accessible to people without any discrimination based on gender, region, language, race and culture.
  • To explore the potential of the game of quizzing as a learning support tool for all kind of students.
  • To standardize the game quizzing and ensure the reliability and quality of quiz related contents.
  • Acting as the regulatory body of Quizzing in Asia, address all the grievances related to Quizzing, identify the city, state and national champions, recognize and reward them.
  • To help create Quizzing chapters in major cities and countries across Asia.

Relevance of Quizzing :

The New Vision for Education, an initiative by the World Economic Forum has examined the issue of skill gaps among students and ways to address them. A school has to be a place to earn not only academic knowledge but also life skills that equip a student to encounter the world outside. These skills can be broadly categorized as Foundational Literacies, Competencies and Character Qualities.

Observation, Lateral thinking, Analytical skills, Logical reasoning and Decision making are some of the pivotal skills that fall under these categories.Students must activate and achieve them during academic life. Quiz plays a vital role here. Beyond a mind game, Quiz has its own Psychological, cognitive, academic benefits.

Another important concern about students of this day and age is, they are afraid of failures. This fear of failure is reflected in their mental well being and can cause a long term impact. Depression, attention deficit disorders and suicidal tendencies are at a high rate among students and Kerala is now the suicide capital of India. Quiz plays a significant role in engaging mind in the healthiest way possible. Thus this mind game benefits academic as well as attitudinal aspects of a student.

Student Registration drive by IQA :

We, IQA Asia, have decided to take up the responsibility to make the students skilled and academically efficient by using quizzing as the primary tool. For that, the first step is to get students registered.We will be spearheading a registration campaign drive that helps  to enroll the school students as international quiz players affiliated to IQA Asia chapter.

Benefits of this registration :

  1. International Quiz Player status : All students who take a registration would be recognized as an international quiz player affiliated to IQA Asia, a status that they can carry forward throughout the year.
