Accounting Club MMU Melaka, established back in the year 2001, has been well known for their own legendary event- the National Inter-Varsity Accounting Quiz. For the 15th year, the annual event was held bigger and better this time on the 16th April at Dewan Seri Negeri, Ayer Keroh with the motto of “Breakthrough Challenges, Strive for Excellence”
The quiz was judged by Mr. Piong Yew Peng, Mr. Lew Zheng Loong and also Ms. Nurul Hidayah whereas the Quiz Master of the day was Ms. Marianne, our very own MMU lecturer. The 20 qualified teams were separated into groups of five which split the Semi-Finals stage into 4 rounds. It took almost 30 minutes for each round, and the participants were definitely giving their best answers to make sure they make it to the Finals.
Lunch was served around 1pm with the announcement of the Top 5 finalists. They were none other than our very own MMU Melaka (Team A), Sunway TES (Team B), Sunway College JB (Team A), UTAR (Team A), and also KTC (Team B). The event resumed at 2pm with a GST Forum by Ms. Ng Sue Lynn and also Mr. Sim Siew Han, experts of GST knowledge. The SRC President, Mr. Saif was also seen posing a question to the speakers from the floor.
The grand finals of the 15th N-IVAQ started off around 3.30 pm. All the teams presented on their respective accounting case analysis challenge given to them by the judges beforehand. After a long wait and an entertaining magic show, the results were announced.
