British Student Quiz Championships

The British Student Quiz Championships is a national quizbowl competition that has occurred eleven times, most recently in May 2015. The 2011 BSQC was a revival of a tournament that had been dormant since 2003. Either Oxford or one of its constituent colleges has won ten of the eleven BSQCs. A much more complete history of the BSQC can be found on the QBWiki.

Oxford's winning team (Oxford A) at the 2015 competition consisted of Charlie Clegg, Joey Goldman, Zachary Vermeer and Ewan MacAulay. Full statistics are available online for the prelims and for all games.

Oxford's winning team (Oxford B) at the 2014 competition consisted of Henry Edwards, Hasneen Karbalai, Nikhil Venkatesh and Ewan MacAulay, beating Oxford A (Zachary Vermeer, Joey Goldman, Charlie Clegg, Hugh Binnie) 410-385 in the final.

The BSQC is run with the help of both BuzzerQuiz and NAQT. We expect that Oxford will defend its national title at the eleventh BSQC in 2015.
