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

The total score will be the cumulative score of all questions answered within the set timeframe.

The 10 best scores in both caregories (IT Students or IT Young Pro) will be invited to participate in the final which takes place on 10/05/2022 evening at the headquarters of Cisco in Diegem.



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.
