University Challenge: Clare vs. UCL
UCL took on Clare College, Cambridge, this week, in what turned out not to be round 2 but the first of the highest-scoring-losers’ matches to finish off round 1. UCL won handily by 220 to 145.
I scored 240 this week, 170 discounting bonuses to which I didn’t know the starter. Did well on the word-related and quotation rounds, utterly failed to identify Motown covers of the Beatles, also failed at major cities of the Hanseatic League.
This week’s show was followed by a little announcement saying “If you want to form a student team for the next UC, email [this address] or ring [this number].” Might just have to look into that.
