About ConQuest

CLPR is conducting the 5th edition of ConQuest which is India’s Premiere National Quiz on the Indian Constitution, History and Politics.

Over the last four years, ConQuest has become the largest quiz and educational activity celebrating India’s constitutional history and politics. Over 8000 students have engaged with the previous editions of ConQuest.

It encourages undergraduate and graduate students from the natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, humanities, and law to engage with the Indian Constitution, law, politics, history and current affairs.

Given the ongoing pandemic, there will be a few changes to this year’s edition of ConQuest:

  • Firstly, it will be held completely online, allowing participants from all over the country to join us.
  • Secondly, instead of the Regional Finals, Knockout Rounds will be conducted which will match the top 8 teams from each Regional Preliminary round against each other.
