Successes from World Scholar’s Cup

Going to the World Scholar’s Cup was truly a lifetime experiences. It’s a challenging yet entertaining and rewarding competition that gathers students from all around the world to discuss various sophisticated subjects. The competition gave us an opportunity to interact with many excellent students from other esteemed institutions as well as developed our teamwork and debating skills through an array of educational activities.

Day one was super hectic. We first had collaborative writing round where our writing skills were tested to the limit along with our ability to collaborate with one another. This was not an easy bite at all, especially when you were asked to do researches with no wifi! Everything did not start well for us all. Matters got worse when we went lost after lunch and were almost late for the debate. With regrets we finished the day with more losses than wins, but as an old proverb says: Sometimes we win, sometimes we learn.

Regardless of the undesired events on the previous day, day 2 started off greatly with the scholars bowl round where our knowledge was tested on a range of different subjects. Days and nights of hard-working and revision had paid off well when we constantly had the correct answers for most of the challenging questions, one of them even involved the series Game of Thrones in. We then had the debate showcase where one of our “great” students, Kiet, went up on stage to demonstrate his debating skills in front of more than 800 guests. He did a great job, indeed! Finally were the award ceremony where we were all awarded and congratulated for our great level of effort and skill. And you even get a cute alpaca at the end of the day.

Despite our initial worries at the beginning of the competition, we gradually gained more confidence in the process and ended up enjoying the experience more than expected. As most competitors were very hardworking and talented, our team had to try our best to overcome countless obstacles and eventually succeeded in getting qualified into the global round. We are filled with joy and pride that our team can represent BVIS again in this prestigious international competition as we are determined to strive for the very best in the next round. Last but not least, we would like to thank our wonderful team mates and teachers along with the event hosts for such an enriching experience.
