The eleventh Buddhological Knowledge Test and graduation ceremony.

The 11th Buddhological Knowledge Test, which assesses contestants’ knowledge about the life of Buddha, will culminate in its final stage at the National Theatre on 28 May, as announced by the organizing committee.
Contestants are expected to have a comprehensive understanding of six volumes of Maha Buddhological treaties, along with knowledge in areas such as culture, Buddhological basics, Abhidhamma, Jataka, Theravada Buddhism history, Pali dictionary, and general knowledge relating to the religion. That includes impromptu questions and special prize consideration.
The initial written test will take place on the morning of 24 May, where examinees can opt for their preferred medium from a mobile phone, computer, or tablet. Following this, in the quarter-final, 26 contestants who passed the initial test will be divided into two groups for further written assessment. The semi-finals will then narrow down the field to six out of ten contestants for progression.
In the final stage, contestants will be evaluated on their oratory skills, proficiency in Pali, and their overall knowledge of Buddhism through verbal questions. Based on this assessment, five winners will be selected. — TWA/NT
