Center Point - Sanchit K and Archit Venugopalan
Over 500 teams and the auditorium was buzzing with activity in anticipation of Pickbrain to take stage. The curtains rose and the quiz was underway with the quizmaster belting out questions from the world of IT. After a snappy prelim, the six schools that made it to the final were:
Shivaji Science Jr. College - Ms. Toshi Meshram and Kunal Wasnik
Bhavans BP Vidya Mandir - Laksh Maheshwari and Ms. Vidhi Kothari
DPS Nagpur - Ashwani K and Parth Mishra
SFS Jr.College - Rahul Bhagat and Udit Parmar
Yashoda College - Siddharth and Harshwardhan
Centre Point - Sanchit K and Archit Venugopalan
The finale saw the youngest team (class 9) from Centre Point dominating the early rounds onstage. As the quiz picked momentum, the duo from Yashoda College also progressed and started closing in on Centre Point.
The other teams tried to break free but could not move forward for long, except the duo from SFS Junior College who managed to climb steadily and in the penultimate round cracked multiple posers to inch ahead of Yashoda to the second place.
With the quiz entering the final round, it was clearly a three way battle with the Centre Point boys still in the lead. However, in the final few questions a courageous SFS burst on the buzzer helped them convert half chances into scores and on the final question they took another chance and clinched the finale.
The prizes were distributed by the Guest of Honour, Vice President and Global Head of Internal IT and Shared Services, TCS, Mr. Alok Kumar.
