DPS MUN Training Session

Went to attend the DPS MUN (Delhi Public School Model United Nations) Training Session at DPS RK Puram along with Vaibhav and Uma Tata Ma’am. There was a briefing and introduction from Mrs. Shyama Chona and then we had 4 Workshops all through the day – Starting from around 10-30 AM to 4-30 PM – Workshops on Resolution Writing and Position Papers, Caucusing, Speeches and the Executive Board and Internet Research. I came to know all about this famous event – There were DPS Branches from all over India. And we had some funny Mock Sessions also. My first experience of a “MUN”…..Would be a day to remember. A report of the training session can be found here.

CBSE Heritage India Quiz Prelims

Preliminary Round of the CBSE Heritage India Quiz 2008 – Like the previous two years, we did not qualify for the finals even this year (Results were out recently). I attempted a whopping 95+ Questions (even though there was negative marking), but my partners did not perform upto expectations. This Quiz requires all the 3 members of the team to give the paper separately and then the total is added (600 Marks). The top 12 Schools from each Zone are selected. Even though my individual score was not bad, (Between 115-125), it actually does not count – Its all about the team effort. So will definitely make it a point to build upon a strong team for the 2009 edition. Best of Luck to all the teams who made it and I hope a Delhi School wins the Nationals!

My rating for the Quiz – 7.5/10
