The final anchored by favourite quizmaster Pickbrain saw questions that were well researched from both the north east and the east at large. That stumped the teams a little as they were used to a more global business quiz. The IIM Shillong team started well and maintained very good pace not letting any of the teams to overtake them.
The second-place battle was becoming interesting but Assam Engineering College, which got a couple of questions right in the middle phases played smartly to not take negatives and also not to try and chase out IIM Shillong, thereby winning the runner up title.
It prompted the witty quiz master to quip that the engineers understood how 35000 was very valuable in these market conditions. The chief guest Mr Ashwani Anand, GM, Vivanta Guwahati, advised the youngsters to keep the student in them alive till the last day of their life, and to be learners for a lifetime.
