Quizzes are considered one of the more effective methods of learning and teaching as they promote self-learning and motivate students to be more attentive. The present study evaluated the impact of a quiz competition on learning behavior of postgraduate students in pharmacology. Post-graduate students in pharmacology from medical (M.D.) and pharmaceutical degree colleges (Masters in pharmaceutical sciences) participated. A written preliminary round was followed by a main quiz. Later, a questionnaire regarding feedback about the quiz was sent to the members of participating teams. All 15 participants gave feedback. In the quiz 49.2% of the questions were answered. Fourteen out of 15 (93.3%) participants studied for the quiz. Topics asked in the quiz were read or discussed later by all the participants (100%). On a scale of 10, average points given by participants were 8.2. Quiz competition stimulated self-learning activities among postgradute students. It may have more impact when organized at national/international conferences.
