With a huge participation from 102 teams, the most so far from this city for Campus Crucible, the excitement was bound to be high as were the tensions.
Pickbrain unfolded his brand of quizzing and his explanation of 'Nano Quizzing' that drew huge applauses from a very quiz appreciating audience. The prelim and wild cards rounds moved swiftly and the final began with two IIM teams on stage with AES Post Grad. Inst. Of Business Mgmt, Institute of Management Nirma University, IIM A, NIT Surat, Nirma University Engineering completing the line up of top 6 teams
The outstation team from NIT Surat who also made it to the final got a loud cheer as they walked up on stage. The quiz was gripping to the very end with IIM-A clinching another final (they have lost from here only in 2007) on the final question to get past AES.
The quizmaster stated in the end that the winners had also topped the prelim, so it was consistency all the way for the IIM duo who will now make the trip to Mumbai for the national final of Tata Crucible.
At the end of it all it was a great quiz, loads of fun and a huge number of prizes this year to cap it all.
