The final began with the quizmaster recognising two teams that missed the final by a whisker. It included the previous champions of the quiz who finished eight and Pickbrain so beautifully pointed out that quiz like sport is a great leveller.

The battle of Mumbai witnessed a powerful and brilliant start by the duo from Dhirubhai Ambani International School as the other teams took some time to get used to environ of the final. The visual round of the quiz witnessed a few superbly researched questions passing across all the teams only to be cracked by an equally brilliant audience.

The buzzer rounds were riveting as the teams from the Lokhandwala Foundation School and the Singhania School rallied from behind to catch up with the team from Dhirubhai Ambani International School. The quiz was getting closer and tighter with every passing round from there on and in the final frontier of the battle a brave effort by Lokhandwala ensured they tied for the top slot with Dhirubhai Ambani International School.

In the tie-breaker that followed the Lokhandwala team got the better of Dhirubhai Ambani International School to take the Mumbai title for the first time. They were appreciated by the quizmaster for their never say die attitude.

The children were delighted to receive their prizes from the young CEO and MD of TCS, Mr.Chandrashekaran who in his message said he was 'thrilled to witness high levels of intellect' from the youngsters both on stage and in the audience. The guest of honour Mrs.Aruna Rao, the CTO of Kotak Group joined Mr.Chandrashekaran to give away the trophies to the top two teams.
