Intervarsity Medical Sciences Quiz Competition: A Journey of Knowledge and Growth

The Intervarsity Medical Sciences Quiz Competition was held on 9 September 2023 by International Medical University (IMU) and opened to pre-clinical medical students. It was a great opportunity for SEGi to send a team of four Year 2 pre-clinical students – Agnes Kiew (Team Leader), Hong Ru Yi, Mah Yuan Jie, and Sharon Ting to participate in this intellectually charged competition. We named our team “All-Nighters” which implied that staying up late to study was common for medical students. This competition was a thrilling experience as it tested not only our medical knowledge but also our teamwork to put our brain together and made correct choices for the answers.

The anticipation and excitement leading up to the quiz were palpable. The preliminary round of the quiz included 20 One Best Answer (OBA) and 10 Multiple Choice True False Questions (MTF). There were no negative markings and the right answer got 1 mark. The MTF questions were quite challenging as any mischosen true statement would lead to a loss of marks. The top 4 teams out of 15 teams with the highest marks would be selected for the semifinal round. The questions prepared covered a wide range of medical disciplines, from anatomy to pharmacology.
