They came. They saw. They Conquered. The phrase seemed apt to describe the dominating victory of IPE at Hyderabad. A city growing in stature in the world of quizzing became the first in this season of Crucible to have two wild card rounds given the closeness of the scores in the prelim.


  • MJ College of Engg : Md. Abdul Quader & Suhaib Askhar
  • IPE : Naveen Kumar & Md. Zuhair Ali
  • Osmania Medical College : Syed Mustafa & Dr. Sri Nagesh
  • IIPM : Ms. Anusha Reddy & Ms.Divya
  • NALSAR : Abdul Akthar & Varun Agarwal
  • IPE : Soumik Sen & Surya Prakash

The final started with the two doctors surging into the lead with aspiring lawyers from NALSAR right behind making one wonder if it indeed was a business quiz. As the quiz moved on, IPE (Naveen and Md. Zuhair), inched closer to these teams with some good answers.

The onset of the buzzer rounds proved to be the differentiator as IPE (Naveen and Md.Zuhair) started blazing away with every single question and it seemed like there was no stopping for them. From a sedate start to finish the quiz with 95 points was a truly commendable performance. The doctor duo did well to finish runner up.

The guest of honour Mr. MN Rao, MD & CEO of Tata Business Support Services, inspired the young teams by telling them “It is a magical time for you to be in India. Just have self belief and confidence and a huge world of success await you”.
