Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven.
- William Shakespeare
Knowledge is at the forefront of every activity we undertake, in one way or the other. Man has an unending thirst to know more. This thirst is the directly the engine that drives all progress in any field. From the time that the wooden club was the smartest thing invented, we as a race have been unyielding in the pursuit of knowledge.
The Quiz club aims to identify students who have a flair for quizzing among the students who join Mount Carmel College every year. A Quiz club has been functioning in our college with the objective of training the students to actively participate in various intercollegiate and state level competitions. The main purpose of the club is to update the knowledge of the students in various fields like academics, general knowledge, analytical abilities, quantitative reasoning, etc. Quiz programs are conducted in each academic year at regular intervals for the betterment of students. Awards and certificates are distributed to the winners during the college Annual Day.
