In the final, quizmaster Pickbrain took charge and set the pace for the final. In a battle that saw all the teams do well early on, it was more of nerves and guts that determined who would move ahead. Hindustan College with three sixes looked all set to win.

As the quiz progressed PSG Tech kept scoring but chose to play the threes and the odd six to get past Hindustan College. The latter played well but fell one or two hits short of PSG duo that went on to win the quiz.

Quizmaster Pickbrain pointed out that the winning team was very young and barely out of class 12 into their graduation, indicating a great future pool for the quiz.
