This is one quiz that you will definitely be 'psyched' about! For the second time in a row, Department of Mental Health and Behavioral Sciences at Fortis Healthcare Ltd is organising India’s exclusive Quiz competition on Psychology - PSYCH-ED. This is designed for students from class XI and XII and aims to test their knowledge of Psychology and allied sciences. Participants should gear up to step far outside their comfort zones, dig deep into their knowledge and understanding of the human mind and think on their feet. 

The online registration for participating in this quiz is an ongoing process and the last date to register would be July 25, 2017. The first round of PSYCH-ED, which is an online quiz, will be held on August 4, 2017.

Each participating school is required to nominate a team of three students from their senior secondary classes. The first round of the quiz will be conducted online within the premises of the school. The top ten qualifying schools from each of the six zones across India will be invited for Zonal Qualifying rounds. 

One of the main reasons behind the quiz is to make the people aware of the subject of psychology and its importance. This is very much the need of the hour as even today there are schools which will not offer psychology as an additional subject

The Zonal Rounds will be held at Mumbai (August 16), Bengaluru (August 17), Delhi (August 21), Jaipur (August 22), Kolkata (August 23) and Mohali (August 26). The winning team from each zone qualify for the finale which is scheduled for September 1, 2017 at the Fortis Memorial Research Institute, Gurgaon.

The winner, first and second runners’ up teams will be awarded a cash prize of – Rs 50,000; Rs 30,000 and Rs 20,000 respectively. Free Comprehensive Psychology internships for all six teams who reach finale will also be organised at any of the Fortis centers.
