Format: 25 questions elims on slides; 60 questions Finals (IR with round reversal after 30)

The quiz began on time with an alumnus of AFMC paying a small tribute to his batchmate Shyam Bhatt whom the annual quiz is named after. Elims were set and conducted completely by students while the finals were by an AFMC faculty member Lt. Col. Moorchung. Questions were nice although the finals seemed to be on the easier side with many chestnuts.

Most teams were neck-to-neck half way through. After the round reversal, Team C surged ahead above others. Towards the end, Team F (Venkat and Rohan) made a stunning comeback from 5th place to 2nd cracking all 4 questions that came their way. The 2 AFMC teams A and B were found to be tied at 3rd place at 80 points. Just before the tie-breaker, it was found that the last finals question was yet to be asked. Team F had answered the last one, so it was a direct for Team E which cracked it and joined A and B at 80 points. A close tie-breaker round of 3 questions happened and Team E won ending at 3rd place.
