Test Your Knowledge on GK, Current Affairs and Language on TikTok!



TikTok is more than just a short video platform. It is a place of learning, educating, being creative and even testing your knowledge. A few months ago, TikTok launched #EduTok, a challenge to spread education and awareness amongst the people of India. Till date, over 10 million videos have been shared using the #EduTok. Through this challenge, TikTok users have created content with a focus on education, motivation, safety, health, and wellness. And if you thought 10 million videos was a big number, the #EduTok challenge has had over 48 billion views.

Through the #EduTok campaign, TikTok India started a series of pop-up quizzes for its users. These quizzes focused on how to deal with everyday situations, and how they can be tackled. The questions were straightforward and hand either two or four options as the answer.

The quizzes were divided into sections such as language, science, health, career, and fitness. Some of the questions were basic such as ‘What does the B in MBA stand for?’.  Other questions, however, tested your ability to think on the go and in turn educate users on what’s the best way to deal with certain scenarios. For example, Jia faints in office all of a sudden! What should her co-workers do?’

These quizzes would regularly pop up on the For You section of TikTok users, giving them a chance to answer and directly engage with TikTok India.

From there, a number of content creators began sharing some general knowledge quizzes on TikTok using the #EduTok challenge. One such popular content creator is Aman, shares a set of videos, each of which is a question. After every 25 questions, he starts with a new round of questions. The difficulty of the questions increases in ascending order.

Another TikTok content creator Testbook, who is one of India’s leading EduTech companies also shares quizzes with its followers. The quizmaster asks a question, which usually focuses around current affairs such as ‘In which city is Jantar Mantar located?’ or ‘Who is the present Prime Minister of India?’ As you can see, the questions are easy, but you have little time to answer them.

While FactoLunch doesn’t do quizzes, its TikTok profile is interesting because it shares one unique fact that adds to your general knowledge. The facts are shared in various categories ranging from sports and going right up to space exploration. By the way, did you know that a day on the planet Venus is longer than a year? Well, we didn’t, but thanks to this TikTok handle, we too learned something new today.
