Scores calculation :

You will have to give the correct answer to 15 questions in maximum 10 minutes!

  • A good answer gives you 1 point
  • A wrong answer or skipped answer results in a score of 0

You can skip questions and come back to the skipped questions later.

The 25 best scores will be invited to participate in the final.

Only the finalists present at the final will win a prize. (and only them)



At the end of the Challenge, you will receive the details of your score and ranking privately. As a result, participants can't share the answers.

In case of a tie, the timeframe to answer the questions will determine the order in the leaderboard.
