6th MyPSA National Pharmacy Debate Competition was organised by IMU Pharmacy Students’ Association (IPSA) and the movement restriction order (MCO) by gov caused the planning to be conducted virtually. The style employed by MyPSA NPDC is Asian Parliamentary (AP) debate style. The format is by 3 rounds of preliminary. Round 1 is a random match. For Round 2, the debaters with one win, the 1-0s, will debate with other 1-0s. Debaters with zero wins, the 0-1s, will debate with other 0-1s. After two debates, the 2-0s debate with the 2-0s, while the 1-1s debate with the 1-1s etc. The opponents in Round 2 and 3 is determined by scores ranking from previous Round using High/Low matching system.

Top 4 teams after 3 Rounds will advance through semi-final, and winners will compete in grand finale. Motion will be released before the debate starts on the day itself. Every competition will be judged and given scores by invited professional adjudicators. The registration opened in two phases, from 7th – 21st August (Phase 1) until 28th August – 11th September (Phase 2). 11 teams have registered and since the number of teams is not even, we have sourced swing team with the help of one of our adjudicators.
