It also tests the ability of participants to answer quickly. This competition is in a "jeopardy" type of format. The participant teams "buzz in" to answer the questions.
 
JAB is a great experience for all participants. It helps increase their knowledge of Jainism, provides opportunity to forge new friendships with Pathshala students nationwide, and much more. In the end, every participant is a winner because of the immense knowledge they acquire and the fun that they have as a participant in this team competition.
