The quiz aims to build awareness and emphasize the importance of IT skills and enable students look at technology through an innovative perspective. In today’s society and economy, IT plays an integral role and is a key enabler for success in diverse fields. The quiz platform works as an effective supplement to the computer science and IT field, as most of the questions researched for the quiz are beyond the academic areas, compelling the students to look beyond the text books. The quiz works as an alternate learning tool for students in an outside classroom environment. As a pioneer in the field of IT quizzing, the TCS IT WIZ has brought a paradigm shift in the world of quizzing with a mix of intelligent and interesting questions, as well as through the introduction of new technology concepts such as software based rounds, gamification and animation.
