Discovering an exciting competition: The World Scholar’s Cup 2020

The World Scholar’s Cup (WSC) is one of the great academic competitions that attracts great interest from students and parents not only in Vietnam but also all over the world. With academic challenges in different fields, WSC helps students not only enhance their  knowledge base but also is an opportunity to exchange and connect with friends around the world.

The World Scholars’ Cup (WSC) is an academic team competition that attracts participation of high school students from more than 60 countries. The tournament is also a chance for students to explore and acquire more knowledge, make new friends as well as to promote their hidden talents. The competition is considered as a “golden chance” for students to show their talents and one of the first steps in becoming global citizens in the future.

By joining WSC, WASSers will be able to apply knowledge into practice such as proposing practical solutions to life issues, or global concerns. Participants need to present their acquired knowledge and own experiences, and judgement towards the given topics. It creates many exciting and engaging experiences that make the competition irresistible and attractive for students around the world. Students register WSC in groups and are divided into 3 categories: Primary students from 8-11 years old, Junior students from 12-14 years old and Senior students from 15-18 years old.

The competition will be about 6 subjects: Science & Technology, History, Literature, Art & Music, Social Studies and a Special Area in three following formats:

  • The Scholar’s ​​Challenge: Students will answer 60 multiple choice questions in 60 minutes (Each area will have 10 questions). This format allows participants to select more than one answer per question. However, the fewer answers chosen and the more correct answers you select leads to a higher score for the participants.
  • Collaborative Writing: In this round, the organizers will give 6 statements in six topics, corresponding to 6 knowledge areas in WSC outline. Competitors have 30 minutes to prepare with their team, 60 minutes to write down a written response in the format of their choosing and the last 15 minutes to discuss within the team and complete the writing. Participants are free to create your compelling pieces with poem or a five-paragraph essay.
  • Team Presentation: After the topic is announced, each team chooses one to make the presentation. Each team will have 10 minutes to deliver the presentation. And remember to let all team members join in the presentation.

With the theme “A WORLD RENEWED”, WASSers this year will study these six areas:

  • Special Area – Mistakes & Recoveries
