The final was an absorbing affair laced with a lot of humour both from Pickbrain and the teams. True to the reputation of Goa the fun loving crowd enjoyed every bit of the quiz and answered a huge number of questions to win themselves questions.

While the duo from Goa Inst of Mgmt (Abhishek Jha and Pooja Kamat) looked good in bursts they missed out on the buzzer in the final round but were worthy runners up. The team from NIT looked the most prepared as they cracked some tough posers to ensure they stayed ahead of the rest to win the first Goa campus title.
