It’s a busy week of quiz hosting for yours truly!  Here’s my second gig, this time in Ennis, Co. Clare.  If you’re in that part of the world, please come on in and support this worthy cause.

Friday’s quiz tips

March 12, 2009 in Habitat for Humanity, Quizzes

habitat_for_humanityIn days of yore, when attending a certain university college I wasn’t the most diligent of students.  However, myself and my cohort always made it our business to actually turn up for the last week of classes. The reason for this wasn’t anything to do with last-minute panic or remorse over our lack of attendance. No, it was simply down to the fact that we knew that most lecturers were generous (and preferred if their class did well overall) and would be offering tips on the upcoming exam.

Sometimes these were downright blunt. “If I were ye, I’d make sure I knew Bernoulli’s principle” said one. Lo!  And indeed behold: a question using Bernoulli‘s equation appeared on the paper the following week and thus a handy 20% was acquired. I was already half-way to where I needed to be.  😉

Others were less inclined to be so giving and would offer advice which, under analysis, pretty much boiled down to “study the whole course”.

I’m counting down the days until this Friday’s Habitat for Humanity charity quiz in Brandon’s Bar, Ennis, Co. Clare.  Hopefully it will be  a great night and raise loads for a very worthy charity.

Paddy Jordan will be providing entertainment on the night with a live music set after the quiz has finished. He may also be helping out with one of the rounds of the quiz! More details as the week progresses…

I’ll also be posting some info on how the rounds will be structured and offering a few clues as to the round names. “Full Multimedia rounds” is not an idle boast. This will be a different type of quiz from the norm (around these parts). Busy week ahead for the blog!
