Network & Infrastructure Challenge by STIB - MIVB
Description: 

We are inviting all Network & Infrastructure talents to participate to the first Network & Infrastructure competition in Belgium. The first round is played online from the 4th of February to the 15th of March. The finals will take place on the 28th of March at STIB-MIVB HQ.

The STIB-MIVB Contest is a challenge designed to inspire Students & Professionals, to have fun, to put their Network & Infrastructure skills to test, to benchmark themselves, to learn something and hopefully to win the prizes.  The contest takes 15 minutes during which one's the participants have to answer to 18 multiple choice questions.
 
Only participants located in Belgium can win the prizes but every-one can participate.  Students and professionals will compete in separate leagues so everyone gets a fair chance to compete to be crowned Belgian Student or Pro Network & Infrastructure Champion.
 
After you complete the Challenge, you will not see your result immediately. The details of your score and your ranking will be released in your private userboard at the end of the challenge so that the answers can't be shared among players during the Challenge.

How to participate?

Everyone can participate but only belgian residents over 18 years old are eligible to take part at the finals and win the prizes. One registration per person is authorized. The participant can only compete in his own name and not for someone else. Personal information of the participant may be checked through different sources. Personal information must be accurate. Inaccurate or false information given by the participant will invalid the registration or entail the loss of the Prize.

Scores calculation and Jokers

You will have 15 minutes to give the correct answer to 18 questions. The questions will be multiple-choice with  one or several good answer(s). The questions will be provided by specialised academics and professionals, who will also be the jury of the Challenge.

The online test contains a maximum of 18 questions with 3 levels of difficulty and an associated score of 1, 2 or 3 points, if answered correctly.

  • 7 easy questions, 1 point
  • 7 medium questions, 2 points
  • 4 difficult questions, 3 points

A wrong answer results in a score of minus 1, irrespective of the level of the question. When you skip a question, you win nor lose points. The total score will be the cumulative score of all questions answered within the set timeframe of 15 minutes.

The contest allows the usage of three ‘jokers’

  • The "50/50", forcing the online test to take out half of the possible answers to a question
  • The "Ask the challengers", where the percentage of the other challengers choosing each answer is displayed to you and
  • The "Bonus question/Ask a friend", in which the challenger sends a bonus question (after the regular 15 minutes) to a friend in the course of the 6-week Challenge. The friend provides the answer and the score is adapted with the result.
