Think you've got what it takes to pit your wits against the finest minds in the UK? Apply to represent Sussex on University Challenge 2016 through our online quiz.
Every year, Universities from across the UK send teams of four (plus one reserve) to face one of the toughest quiz shows anywhere, from one of television's toughest hosts, Jeremy Paxman.
Sussex University have made the first round of live shows the last two years and have a colourful history on the show. Sussex have won the entire competition twice - back in 1967 and 1969 - though also have the dubious honour of the lowest-scoring team in University Challenge history, mustering up just 10 points on one occasion.
Seb Zarrilli, last year's team captain, encourages you give the quiz a try:
I would love for Sussex to continue our two-year streak of appearances on the show. It really can be surprising how much you know without even realising it, I certainly surprised myself! This is a fun little thing you could put on your CV and people recognising you on campus occasionally can be fun! There's nothing to lose from applying and quite a lot to gain.

To encourage a wider pool of students applying trials will run slightly differently this year. Between 10am Monday 19th October and 4pm Friday 23rd October you can take part in our online trial via the link at the bottom of this page - a short quiz hosted by QuizEgg.
