Notes

  • The reporting results will clearly show that this quiz was not played in the usual way. It began like a conventional quiz format, with 6 teams. But after a couple of rounds, the bottom two teams were "bought-out" by the top 2, resulting in 4 remaining teams. Finally, we had a face-off between 2 teams of 6 people each. Salil-Harsh rightly called it the "qawwali" format :-)
  • The quiz was nice and not too taxing. Most questions were interesting and workable, presenting a pleasant face of business quizzing
  • The elims were quite good too

One of the best business quiz I've participated in, and done reasonably well :-)

Was indeed a very good biz quiz..a refreshing change from the regular BC quizzes (read literature-trivia heavy) that take place at BC...
But i feel there were lot of questions on origin of words and terms in the elims...
