Quizmaster Pickbrain took charge of the final. He was swift and so were the teams. The final was dominated by the performance of the IIM teams. Understandably, their knowledge of business and comfort with the nature of such a quiz was higher.
The lead positions in the quiz kept fluctuating between IIM teams. It was no different throughout the quiz. One of the IIM teams that were relatively silent in the early stages came back strongly towards the end making the final very interesting. The duo of Shashwata and Ms. Sirisha who were leading comfortably were pushed to battle a tiebreaker by Sreyan and Ansh.
The former however managed to crack the tiebreaker and win the title. The guest of honour Mr. Ashish Jha the Head of Operations from Tata International advised the young audience to always strive to be consistent. The winners now travel to Hyderabad for their next round in the quiz.
