Army Public win Lucknow thriller

WINNER: Army Public School - Siddhanth Singh and Pranay Mishra
RUNNER UP: Seth Jaipuria School - Kanishk Singh and Tatagath Bhatia


Over 1600 students and the venue was buzzing with excitement well before the prelim began. Teams had come in from Dehradun, Varanasi, Kanpur, Bareli and other neighbouring cities for their edition of TCS IT Wiz.

Quizmaster Pickbrain commenced proceedings and with every question the excitement and interest only went higher. The prelim led to the selection of six schools that made it to the final:

Seth Anandram Jaipuria, Kanpur - Md. Saif and Anubhav Kumar
Sunbeam School, Varanasi - Apoorv Singh and Ayush Kumar
La Martiniere College - Akshat and Abhishek Singh
Army Public School - Siddhanth Singh and Pranay Mishra
Lucknow Public School - Utkarsh Gupta and Shivam Mishra
Seth Jaipuria School, Lucknow - Kanishk Singh and Tatagath Bhatia

The finale started with Seth Jaipuria Lucknow scoring early along with Lucknow Public but soon enough the duo from Army Public School also drew parity. The first couple of rounds moved fast and with the onset of the buzzers, the team from Lucknow Public tried to push the throttle but were found wanting on two occasions. This proved to be too costly for them in a battle that had very less margin for error.

In the meantime, the Seth Jaipuria team moved ahead and seemed like running away with the quiz but the round that followed was a thriller. It was clearly the toughest of rounds involving lateral thinking and the boys from Army Public School went for the round, backing themselves with a lot of guts. They cracked three questions in a difficult round and that got them on par with the Seth Jaipuria duo.

In the final round, it went down to the final question where Army Public School went for the buzzer and cracked a tough poser to clinch the title and made it to the nationals.

The guest of honour Dr. Vinay Kumar Pathak, Vice-Chancellor, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam University graced the occasion and gave away the prizes to the top teams. Mr. Jayanth Krishna, the Delivery Centre Head for TCS Lucknow was also present.
