The annual Mind Over Matter: Hong Kong Inter-School Quiz invites students to test their general knowledge at German Swiss School on September 23.
Mind Over Matter is the oldest English inter-school quiz between schools in China, Hong Kong and Macau. It’s open to students in Form Three and above.
Students compete in groups of three and work through multiple rounds of questions.
The questions cover a variety of topics, from comics to current affairs to history and ancient civilisations.
