The final round started by 1. It consisted of two infinite rebounds, each with 12 questions and a written round with 8 questions. Here too, the teams found it difficult to score. The questions asked were from diverse fields-from simple tech to medicine, to India.

In the end the team of Arnabh Sengupta and Siddharth Ramesh from AFMC came 1st with 100 points. The team of Anirudh Anilkumar and Hritvik Jha came runners up beating the team of Sai Pavan and Rituraj in a tiebreaker.

The quizmaster Vrushabh Gudade did an impressive job in setting up the lovely questions and conducting the quiz.
