The first two editions of DSSL were conducted with a mix of on-ground and digital participation and received participation from one crore students from over 30,000 schools. Given the on-going pandemic, BYJU’S plans on leveraging its digital expertise to create a first-of-its-kind 100% virtual challenge, allowing students from all parts of the country to test and apply their knowledge.

Atit Mehta, VP, Marketing, BYJU’S, said, “We have taken extraordinary steps to ensure students don't miss out on their favourite school quiz this year. In fact, thanks to the growing acceptance and adoption of digital learning, we expect the participation to be higher than ever before. Never has a school-quiz happened at such a scale before and we are thrilled to be creating history alongside Discovery. Our new format will give students across all parts of the country a transparent and unbiased platform to compete and showcase their capabilities to the entire nation. Online learning has been breaking the glass ceiling that existed in education for years and with such an initiative, we want to further ignite the passion and love for learning among children everywhere."

Megha Tata, Managing Director, South Asia, Discovery, said, “In just two years, DSSL has emerged as India’s favourite school quiz. Despite the on-going pandemic, we continued to receive numerous queries from students across the country on how and when the quiz will return this year. This love and adulation inspired us to use technology and conceptualise this school quiz through a new lens. We’re confident that young and eager minds will be delighted to participate in the newly launched quiz.”

Conceptualised at a never-before scale, Discovery School Super League powered by BYJU’S, will reach out to 30,000+ schools across 29 states, targeting participation from students in the age-group of eight to 16 years. Each participant will be able to give four preparatory tests and there is no entry fee to participate in the main school quiz either. After a rigorous selection process, the top team from each of the states will qualify for the six-episode TV quiz show, which will premiere on Discovery channel and Discovery Kids in the coming year.

The winners of the Discovery School Super League powered by BYJU’S will win an all-expense paid trip to NASA. Students will be able to participate in DSSL 2020 by downloading the app available on Android and iOS: onelink.to/3fdzvw
