2. Pottermore Quiz: (Category 7-12)
Accio Potterheads. JLRC brings you the golden opportunity to dive into the realm of magic once again. It has been 2 long waited years since the Hogwarts Express last left Platform Nine and Three-Quarters. As 2023 marks the 21th anniversary of the Potter world, this year JLRC aims to make the journey even more sensational and exciting than ever.
Rules And Regulations:
For this year’s version of the “Pottermore Quiz”, there will be two rounds. The first one will be a written quiz on only the 7 books and 8 movies of the Harry Potter series, from which only the top 6 teams will advance to the final stage round. The stage round will be a buzzer round conducted by special quiz masters. Students from 7-12 are eligible to register. Each team can have three members with no institutional boundaries.

3. English Spelling: (Categories C,D,E)
English spelling – the time honored event of displaying one’s intrinsic mastery over words in the English Language. Spelling serves as a prerequisite for language learning and thus broadly speaking, a prerequisite for communication in general, from the base elementary level all the way over to the most advanced.
Rules And Regulations:
There will be two rounds in this solo event. The preliminary round will consist of a written round where participants will be told to write the spelling of certain words pronounced by the spell master. The final round will be an interactive, rapid-fire stage round.

4.Book Based Quiz: (Categories A,B,C,D,E)
Rules And Regulations:
One Bangla book and two English books will be assigned to each category in this team event where participants can have up to three people in their team. There will be two rounds in this event. The first round will consist of written, comprehensive questions from each book while the final round will be an interactive, rapid-fire buzzer round.
All team members need to be of the same institution.
The booklist will be announced at a later date

5. JLRC Language Championship: (Category 7-12)
Now, before you gloss over this event as "Just another English Olympiad", let us make our case. With this event, we promise to offer you the best evaluation of your linguistic skills while simultaneously drifting away from the classic English Olympiad conventions. Providing a more uncharacteristic and flexible playing field, we hope to test your on-spot creativity and ability to thrive under pressure through ordeals focusing on the 4 primary skills of linguistics: Reading, Speaking, Writing and Listening.
Rules And Regulations:
This is a 3-person team based event. All team members need to be of the same institution. There is no definitive question pattern for this event. Setting questions and evaluating answer scripts will be conducted entirely by the adjudicator committee. The rules and regulations for this event will be announced extensively at a later date.
Registration of this event is separate from the other events. To register a 3-person team, participants will have to pay a registration fee of 200 taka separate from general or spot registration.

6. Turn the Coat: (Categories C,D,E)
A turn the coat debate is a style of debating in which an individual is allotted a certain amount of time to speak on the given motion. The very reason why it’s called “Turn The Coat” is because you change your stance midway through your speech, making a U-turn from the point you set yourself up previously in the discourse.
Rules And Regulations
Here, participants will get to pick a draw containing a random topic. After they have been offered a topic, they will be given 4 minutes to think. When the 4 minutes will be over, participants have to talk in favor of the topic in the first 2 minutes of the speech and change their side in the second 2 minutes which makes a total of 4 minutes.

7. Catch 22: (Categories C,D,E)
Want to be a writer, a novelist or a director? Or don’t? Doesn’t matter. Because JLRC’s exclusive “Catch-22” is designed for students to not only prove their writing skills but also to bring forth their imagination and analytical prowess.
Rules And Regulations:
It is a writing based event, where participants will be given an unfinished comic strip and they will have to lead the story to a relevant conclusion using their decision-making, situation analyzing abilities and of course creativity within the given time. So be ready to bring your inner author out and prove yourself.

8.Movie Based Quiz: (Categories: A,B)
Rules And Regulations:
Participants in each category will be shown a movie. After they have watched the movie, they will have to answer questions from the movie and show off how much they have paid attention to the movie being shown, thus carefully attesting the listening and observational skills of the participants.

9. Binge Quiz: (Categories C,D,E)
Screen or sheets? Congratulations, if you have picked “screen”, this is the event for you. (Don’t worry, sheet pickers! They are not the lone enjoyers. You too are welcome!)
In addition to the conventional movie based quiz, JLRC presents to you the multi-series based “Binge Quiz”.
Rules And Regulations:
This is a 3-person team based event.
Similar to Movie Based Quiz, the participants will be shown an episode from a TV series. After watching the episode, participants at first have to answer a comprehensive question related to the episode being shown and later, more general MCQ or short questions from the series overall. All team members need to be of the same institution.
List of series will be announced soon

10. Tetrathlon: (Categories A,B,C,D,E)
In this event, participants will take part in an entertaining, 4-in-1 test designed to test their vocabulary skills. It features 4 parts, namely:
a) Anagram: Jumbled words will be given to the participants. Participants must rearrange those words to make it meaningful
b) Hangman: This will be an unusual way of playing the standard ‘Hangman’. Participants will have to guess words whose letters will be replaced by underlines, with spaces indicated for vowels, and the meaning of the word will be given.
c) Word hive: A word hive consists of five levels, like a beehive, with each next level having 1 more letter than the previous. Participants will need to use all the letters in a single row. In the next row, they have to add 1 more letter and rearrange it. Meaning of the words will be given.
(As if anagram wasn't evil enough.)
d) Crosswords: Just a regular crossword, where rows and columns with empty letter slots will be intersected. A number will be given to every initiation of a word, and the meaning of a word will be given to each number as the clue to the word. Words may be sequenced vertically or horizontally.

11. Lexical Dismantling: (Categories: C,D,E)
Have you ever struggled to read a passage that is so complicated and saturated with complex words that you’ve got lost trying to follow the strain of phrases missing what it's trying to express in the process? We bet you've wondered why they don't just keep it simple! Well, in this JLRC exclusive event, simplifying is the name of the game and you are its proud contestant.
Rules And Regulations
In this event, a passage written using complex words and phrases will be provided. A table containing simpler synonymous words will be provided. Participants will be tasked with replacing the words and phrases from the complex passage using their simpler equivalents from the table to, essentially, dismantle the passage to a far simpler form– one that anyone could hope to comprehend. This event aims to help you master the art of "MAXIMUM VALUE IN MINIMUM WORDS". So, are you ready to take on the challenge?

And new added event details will be published soon.
