The first series of questions saw many of the teams score. Over time it was the young team from Shiv Nadar University and IMT with Abhilash and Pradyumna who were locked in a head to head battle progressing at the same score after each level.
On the final frontier, the AMU team came back strongly but fell short by a fraction at the end of the game. For the top two teams, it was the final question that turned out to be the decider. The young team from Shiv Nadar University, still in their first year of graduation showed courage as they got past the IMT team to clinch their first ever title.
