A cloudy afternoon with the threat of heavy rains and an exam season in the state did not dampen the spirits of enthusiastic quizzers who came to be part of the Rohtak Crucible. After a snappy prelim the finalists were:


  • BITS Pilani: Sahil Gupta and Tanay Shankar
  • Jindal Global University: Reshabh Bajaj and Jishnu Dhar
  • BITS Pilani: Utsav Kumar and Samarth Agrawal
  • NIT Kurukshetra: Shantanu and Saurabh
  • BITS Pilani: Gyanendra Mishra and Ines Khandelwal
  • UIET MDU: Ravi Hooda and Deep Shaunik

The final started with very interesting questions some cracked by the teams while the others were cracked by the audience. The quiz moved quickly from one round to another and the BITS teams started leaving the others behind.

It all came down to a two team battle between Sahil and Tanay who were always a shade ahead and Utsav and Samarth who never let go of a chance to come back. It ended with a tie breaker between them and the former made it to the northern zonals.


  • WINNER : BITS Pilani – Sahil Gupta and Tanay Shankar
  • RUNNER UP : BITS Pilani – Utsav Kumar and Samarth Agrawal
