The city of Patna drew a participation of over 300 students. The teams braved the early summer heat and a local bundh to be part of the event. The prelim was not too difficult as teams scored well. The final six were:
Chanakya National Law Univ. (CNLU) :Raj Vardhan and Ms. Riya Chouksey
NIT Patna :Ms. Nivedita and Amitesh Gupta
IIT Patna :Uttkarsh Singh and Anand Mazumdar
NIT Patna :Ankit and Deepanker
IIT Patna :Ravi Kumar and Ravi Anand
Chanakya National Law Univ. :Piyush and Harshit Anand
Champions, Chanakya National Law Univ. - Raj Vardhan and Ms. Riya Chouksey
The final was dominated by Raj and Riya of CNLU from the word go. They went about in a fashion that no team really got even a toe-hold to challenge them. They simply moved from one round to the other scoring at will.
The battle for the second place was a tight one with teams realising they did not have a chance to chase down the CNLU team. It went down to the final few questions where the IIT team held their own and ensured they won the runner up title.
The winners move to Kolkata for the zonal and should they finish in the top two they would progress to the national final of the quiz.
Runner Up, IIT Patna - Ravi Kumar and Ravi Anand
WINNER : Chanakya National Law Univ. - Raj Vardhan and Ms. Riya Chouksey
