TCS IT Wiz Background
In today’s society and economy, IT plays an integral role and is a key enabler for success in diverse fields.
TCS IT Wiz, a ‘knowledge Initiative’ started in 1999, is the biggest inter-school IT Quiz in India for students of Class 8-12. The quiz aims to build awareness, emphasize the importance of IT skills and enable students to look at technology from an innovation perspective. The quiz platform acts as an active supplement to the field of computer science and technology as most questions researched for the quiz go beyond academic fields, pushing participating students to look beyond their textbooks. The quiz is an innovative learning method that improves student learning and works in the long term to make them more employable in technology-led fields.
Today, TCS IT Wiz has become a benchmark for the quality of testing, the intensity with which teams compete, and the sheer numbers of participation it attracts in the inter-school quizzing circuit. The quiz has gained tremendous support between schools and the student community and offers a gateway into the IT world for the student population.
TCS IT Wiz has also earned an entry in the LIMCA Book of Records as the nation's first IT quiz and as a pioneer in the field of IT quizzing. TCS IT Wiz has introduced a paradigm shift in the world of quizzing through its intelligent and interesting mix of questions or through the introduction of new technology concepts such as software-based rounds, gamification, animation, etc.,
Students participating in the quiz benefit from an awareness of these developments and can keep pace with the latest changes in technology.
Since its inception, TCS IT Wiz has been an on-ground event, where all students along with teachers/parents/guardians/school representatives gather and participate in the quiz in each city where it’s held.
This year we have re-imagined the entire quiz to conduct it digitally through an online mode.
