Try-outs for the 2018 Southampton University Challenge team are now open.

The first round test will consist of answering 50 written questions to test general knowledge.

Participants who achieve the highest score will then be invited to partake in a second round of try-outs, which will be a Mastermind style oral quiz.

Based on the results of this round, five lucky individuals will be chosen to form the official team to represent our university next year. Four will make up the team members and one will be a reserve.

All students are eligible to represent the University of Southampton so long as they are enrolled to study until at least May 2018.
