The quiz, as always, was hosted by the witty and legendary quizmaster, Pickbrain. He set a brisk pace as the quiz moved from one animated round to another.

The entire show was dominated by the youngest team on stage from Presidency RT Nagar who backed themselves on half chances and were quick on the ones they knew. This ensured other teams did not get chances to get past them as they scored in every round of the quiz. A deserved win for a young team. A first for their school.

The battle also saw teams from Kumarans and NPS play well in phases and the former seemed to know a lot of answers but was unwilling to hit the buzzer. The safe approach cost them a lot, as Little Flower managed to get past them to emerge as runner up for the first time.

The guest of honour Mr. Rajendra Kumar Kataria (IAS), Secretary to Government of Karnataka, Agriculture Department, along with Mr. Sunil Deshpande, Delivery Centre Head, Bangalore, Tata Consultancy Services, distributed the prizes.
