QuizSoc is a society devoted to quizzing in all of its forms, with a particular dedication to the team buzzer style seen on the BBC Two Show University Challenge.

We sometimes run a parallel quizzing session in weeks where there is high demand for a less serious style of team quizzing known as ‘League of London’, involving quick fire questions.

If you wish to enrich your academic knowledge, enhance your skills of recall and have a lot of fun in the process, this is the society you need!

Once a week we host buzzer quizzing sessions. Join our group on Facebook for weekly updates as to when and where these will be. 

Once a month we host our own pub quiz with questions written on a variety of topics ranging from General Knowledge, Sciences, Humanities, as well as Music and Picture Rounds. Why not bring some friends and come along?

We also provide training for prospective University Challenge contestants and competitors at a number of untelevised buzzer quizzing tournaments across the UK.

Following on from the success of our first ‘Scot Bowl’ tournament last year, where we were delighted to welcome teams from Belfast, Warwick, St Andrews and other universities, we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our third ‘Scot Bowl’ tournament at Edinburgh University this year. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates!

How to join - the good news is that you just have to turn up to our events, as posted on our Facebook group and page. Our monthly pub quizzes are £1 per player which is collected on the night, but if you want to write a round for us (and we encourage anyone to give it a go!), it's free to play.

We hope to see you!
