Shorthand Champions League

The final rounds of the Shorthand Champions League will be an all-postgraduate affair.

Huge crowds are expected for the live semi final and final, which will be staged on the same day during a timetabled shorthand session this week.

Hsin-Yi was the first to book a place in the final four in a whitewash, after Latifa failed to turn up for her quarter final passage.

But the other other contests were hard fought and had the SCL officials scrambling for the rule book to determine the winners, in scenes which are likely to be mirrored after the general election on May 8.

Shorthand Champions League - knockout

In a move possibly inspired by The Voice, the first knockout round of the Shorthand Champions League was played in an experimental blind format.

The results - and the draw for this week's Quarter Finals - can now be revealed.

Meanwhile, we can confirm that FIFA has shortlisted the Shorthand Champions League for its inaugural Transparency In Sport awards, while Will.I.Am has branded the competition "dope" (although this may have been "deep". The outline got smudged).

Round of 16

Latifa 0 - Andrew 7

Hsin-Yi 0 - Annabelle X

Shorthand Champions League wk 6

After an administrative farce which has led to the director of the Shorthand Champions League being fired and an inquiry being demanded by fans across the world, the final league standings can be revealed.

Round One ended in a tooth-and-nail scrap for qualification which did not disappoint in drama.

There was heartache in week six for Shauntal, Matt and Daniel who all missed out on last-minute opportunities to progress.

The biggest shock came in Group F where Evie - who had sat comfortably in a qualification spot for weeks - was overturned by Melisande.

Timed reporting test for year 2

There will be a timed news writing test for Reporting and Writing II in the newsroom from 2pm to 3pm tomorrow.

The test includes a verbal statement at 100wpm which needs to be taken down so make sure you bring notepaper and a pen.

It is worth 20% of the final mark for the module.
