The Raipur edition of the quiz attracted over a 100 teams. The prelim started with quizmaster Pickbrain explaining the format and the rules before unfolding his armoury of questions. After an interesting prelim the following six made it to the final:
IIIT-R :Yash and Shrikanth Gupta
NIT-R :Faisal and Chinmay
IIM-R :Naveen and Sadhu Dhanush
HNLU :Sauhad and Tushar
IIM-R :Jasojeet and Suhas
NIT-R :Abhik Sarkar and Pratyush
Champions, IIM-R - Jasojeet and Suhas
The final was competitive from the word go. As each segment unfolded, teams scored with consistency to keep everyone guessing on who would win. The IIM duo of Jasojeet and Suhas got into the lead as the quiz entered the final phase.
The NIT teams and HNLU were also in the fray. On the final question NIT’s Abhik and Pratyush had a chance to try and challenge the IIM team that were leading but were prudent to not take the bonus question. It led to a tie breaker with HNLU which went the NIT way.
The guest of honour, Prof. Sharma, Chairman PGP, IIM Raipur appreciated the Tata’s for taking the quiz to small towns drawing a parallel to how the IIM’s were also bringing out talent from these towns.
