Frequently Asked Questions

Goa Quiz Championship (GQC) is an online quiz competition for students of Classes 3 to 12. It is a Quiz like no other as it is not a test of plain facts or knowledge. It is a test of concepts, of understanding, of logic, of presence of mind, of sometimes working out the answer without knowing much about it to begin with. The underlying goal is to give the Goa students a taste of skills that will hold them in good stead in real life.

GQC Is being facilitated jointly by Education Committee, Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Goa State Innovation Council in association with Space Odyssey Education.

The language of instruction and communication of GQC is English

All students of Goa schools from Classes 3 to 12 are eligible to participate in GQC. Students from outside Goa who have a genuine interest in Goa are also eligible to participate but must bear in mind that being Goa-oriented, the Quiz will have about a quarter of questions related to Goa – its history, culture, specialties, accomplishments, famous people and more.

  • Sub-Juniors: Classes 3 to 5
