WINNER: WWA Cossipore Eng School - Sayantan Bhattacharjee and Debargha Bose

RUNNER UP: Loyola School, Jamshedpur - Aviral Dasgupta and S N Aditya Murthy

Brilliance seems an understatement to describe the performance of the schools at the Kolkata edition of the quiz, this year. With over 500 teams from not just Kolkata but Jamshedpur and Ranchi as well taking the prelim, it was only natural that the cut off scores in the prelim were higher than usual.

The finalists were

Lakshmipat Singhani Academy - Pallav TanTia and Mohit Agarwal
Khalsa Model Sr. Sec. School - Shavnak Mukherjee and Rohit Deb
Loyola School, Jamshedpur - Aviral Dasgupta and S N Aditya Murthy
WWA Cossipore Eng School - Sayantan Bhattacharjee and Debargha Bose
Don Bosco, Park Cirus - Mohit Bhura and Ayush Kanodia
DPS, Ruby Park - Ankit Pati and Ravi Tripathi

The final started with Cossipore English registering an impressive early lead but as the rounds of the quiz unfolded the other teams started gathering momentum and the young finalists from DPS and Loyola Jamshedpur (both teams from class 9) truly impressed and progressed.

The final rounds of the quiz were tense and close as the fate of the quiz fluctuated quite literally with each question. At the end of the day DPS missed a couple of chances on the buzzer to finish a very credible third, while Loyola and Cossipore were tied for the top slot.

The tie breaker was truly dramatic with both teams either getting it right or wrong as it went into multiple questions before the more experienced duo from Cossipore got the better of the Loyola duo to log a memorable victory for themselves in the inter school quizzing circuit.

" I must state that I hardly knew the answer to more than a couple of questions while these kids seem so brilliant. I congratulate them."
