Varsity Match

Oxford and Cambridge have played a Varsity Match in quizzing (somewhat) annually since 1999. Oxford won the first 13 Varsity matches before Cambridge wrested the trophy from our grasp in 2014, although Cambridge did manage to tie in the very first match in 1999 before Oxford won on a tiebreaker. Unfortunately, we do not have a complete record of the scores from past Varsity Matches. Detailed results from 2010 onwards are on our recent results page. In addition, a fairly detailed listing can be found on the Cambridge University Quiz Society website. Below is an outline of the overall history of the competition.
