The national finale of TCS IT Wiz 2015 witnessed a nail biting finish with the final questions deciding who would win the most coveted title in IT quizzing among schools. After two fast paced and absorbing semi-finals, the following eight team battled it out in the mega final.

Rajendra Vidyalaya Jamshedpur (JSR) - Shadan Kalam and Adnan Azmat
Rukmini Devi Public School - Udit Kalra and Saarthak S
RN Podar - Abhishek M and Nikhil Kumar
Army Public School - Siddhanth Singh and Pranay Mishra
The Emerald Heights - Dev Seth and Vaibhav Singh
St. Patrick Higher Sec. School - Venkat Sai and Jayakrishna
Chaitanya Jr. Kalasala - Siddhartha Rao and Upamanyu Dutta
Navrachana School Sama Vadodara - Sujay Nigam and Sachin Agarwal

At the end of a long journey that covered 15 cities, with over 1000 schools and more than 17,000 students, it was two young boys from Jamshedpur who emerged national champions.

The team from Pondicherry which had won the Chennai final lost by a whisker to finish runner up. The quizmaster Pickbrain rightly observed that the quiz had become such a huge national movement that it was no longer about the cities where the quiz was held as the top teams had actually travelled to Kolkata and Chennai respectively to be a part of the quiz.

It also reflected on the interest levels schools across the country were taking towards the quiz and IT as a domain. Mr. N. Chandrasekaran, MD and CEO, Tata Consultancy Services was the chief guest, along with several other senior dignitaries and guests who enjoyed the finale.
