CBSE to hold Cryptic Crossword Contest.

By Admin 07th Apr, 2016 02:35 pm

CBSE students in classes 7, 8 and 9 are in for a special treat as the Board is organising a cryptic crossword competition.

The CBSE Cryptic Crossword Contest will begin with the City Round which will be conducted in select cities from April to August. It will be followed by the National Round which will be conducted in New Delhi in November and December.

Students in Maharashtra will have to choose either Pune (1 August), Navi Mumbai (3 August), Nashik (5 August) or Mumbai (8 August) to participate in the contest. Schools located near the designated cities may also participate. Each team will have two students who will have to solve a written cryptic crossword puzzle in 60 minutes.

The National Round will be a two-day event. It will start with a quarter final where a written cryptic crossword puzzle is to be solved in one hour by all qualifying teams. The top 16 teams will qualify for the semi-finals. The semi-finalists will be divided into four groups of four teams each. They will participate in an onstage cryptic crossword contest.

In the finals, the top teams from each semi-final and the two best runners-up will compete onstage. Winners and runner-ups will receive cash prizes and certificates.
