    Incentives for Learning through the Best Chemistry Student Competition

    Objectives of the Practice:

  • 1. To revise the basic concepts of Chemistry.
  • 2. To update the subject Knowledge of the students.
  • 3. To encourage students to apply the subject knowledge in day-to-day life.
  • 4. To develop an ability for critical and analytical thinking.
  • 5. To create a competitive spirit among the students.
  • 6. To avail an incentive to motivate students.

The Context:

Chemistry is basic science. With the knowledge of Chemistry, we can understand the surrounding around us in a better way. It can explain to us the process of evolution and the origin of living organisms on the earth. The functioning of the human body depends upon the chemical mechanism which Chemistry can exemplify in the most convincing way. The whole edifice of medical science depends upon Chemistry. Chemistry is the greatest asset of pharmaceuticals. It is also used by and large in agriculture, industry, and energy generation. Thus, the knowledge of Chemistry is applicable in every walk of human life. Many times, the students seem to be unaware of the practical application of the knowledge of Chemistry in various fields. They have all theoretical knowledge only. Therefore, in order to make their basic concepts clear and to motivate them for the practical application of Chemistry, the Department of Chemistry conducts a competition of the Best Chemistry Student.

The Practice:

The Department of Chemistry has been conducting the Best Chemistry Student competition since the academic year 2010. It is conducted in the mid of the year when students are well acquainted with the discipline knowledge. Initially, the students who wish to participate in the competition are enrolled. The competition is for the final year UG students and first and second year of PG students. It is conducted class-wise and the Best Chemistry Student is selected from every class. Basically, it is a quiz competition that follows all modern and innovative methods of conducting quiz competitions. It is full of thrill and excitement also. The interest of the students is sustained till the end through different rounds of the competition.

There are many rounds in this competition that work as a filtration process to select students for the Best Chemistry Student award. The first round is a Selection Round for which a written test is conducted. It is an objective test with 100 multiple-choice questions. These MCQs are based on the syllabus the students have studied so far. There is a negative marking scheme to evaluate the answer sheets of the students. This is the very first filter round where a considerable number of the students are eliminated as the scope of the questionnaire is vast with a negative marking scheme. Out of the Selection Round, the toppers are shortlisted and divided into teams.

The second round is the Rapid-Fire Round in which participants are supposed to answer a particular set of questions within the stipulated period of time. There is no negative marking in this round. The next is a Buzzer Round with a negative marking scheme. The team that blows the buzzer first is eligible for the answer. The next round is a Drawing Round in which the students are supposed to draw certain Chemistry related structures. The subject knowledge as well as the skills of drawing structures is assessed through this round.

The final round is the Practical Knowledge Round where basic subject knowledge, as well as the applicability of the knowledge, is tested. In this way, the students are scrupulously evaluated on the basis of their in-depth knowledge of the subject. There are cash –prizes for the winners of the competition. The winner is declared as the Best Chemistry student and is conferred with the cash prize of Rs.1000. The second runner-up is given the cash prize of Rs.500. The prizes of the competition are sponsored by the Head of the Institute Prin. Dr. B. S. Jagdale.

Evidences of Success:

The Best Chemistry Student Competition is the most popular competition in the department. The students are seen preparing for the competition right from the first year itself. The eligible students participate in the competition with great enthusiasm. The competition helps to develop their critical and logistic thinking. It also helps for the total evaluation and the department can locate the advanced learners through the competition. It also creates a competitive spirit among the students making them familiar with different techniques of the competitions. The faculty of the department gets busy setting the questionnaire as well as different sets of questions. The overall impact of this is that students are trained to digest more and more of the subject knowledge. They are sensitized to key areas and try to learn them effectively. The Best Chemistry Student competition has boosted the result of the department as the students are keenly focused on basic subject knowledge.

Problems Encountered and Resources Required

Encouraging students to participate in the competition and enrolling them in the competition is definitely one of the challenges. Though there are many students at UG and PG levels, there are a few students willing to participate in the competitions. Setting a question paper for the written test is another challenge. This question paper has to be based on the syllabus of UG and PG syllabi and yet it has to be new every time and altogether different than the earlier one which sometimes seems to be difficult. Setting questionnaires for the buzzer round is also difficult and the faculty has to be well-studied to be able to avoid repetitions. Sustaining the interest of the students throughout the competition is also a challenge.
