Tata Crucible 2012

The biggest Business Quiz for Students is back! 24 cities – 24 champions – 1 National Champion.

Not only is the Tata Crucible a chance to be crowned the Best Business Quizzers in the country but also a fantastic platform to monetize your year long preparations. The Tata Crucible Campus Edition , now in its 8th year, will be hosted by quizmaster Giri Pickbrain Balasubramaniam and will be spread over 50 days!

Rules for the year remain almost the same as the previous years with clearer indications for teams from colleges where there are no centres (participate in the closest centre by geographical distance and all teams from the same college must participate at one centre)

But as usual what surprises us is no action being taken on Professional courses like ICAI and ICWA. Its just unfair to the students of ICAI that they have to hear the brickbats of a 1000 students!!

Galaxy 2011 | Quiz Review

Galaxy 2011, after being postponed twice, was finally conducted in the cramped auditorium of JIMS, Kalkaji on the 26th day of November. Cramped not because of the small size but because of the number of teams that turned up for the quiz(80+), with a few teams from Hyderabad, Bangalore and Kolkata. After a quick little yoga exercise to switch off the cell phones, the 25 question prelims began. The prelims were a mix of business, brands, current affairs and sports.
With a difference of 4 marks separating the sixth team from the seventh, the selection of six teams was a task well cut out. The teams that made it to the finals were from IILMx2, FMS, IIFT, Hansraj and Sri Venkateswara College. The finals had 4 rounds- Uchhal Kud, Iski Topi Uske Sar, Zero Katta and Ae! Kya Bolti Tu. After the relatively easy initial rounds, the teams were all warmed-up for the high octane barrage of questions that were to follow. And the two teams that dealt with them with ease were the teams from Venky and FMS who were well versed with their Pixar and La Liga, while IIFT who messed up with their Tennis Grand Slam, was unable to build on the momentum of their foundation. After the end of the penultimate round the scorecard read- 12(Hansraj), 16(IILM), 21(IILM), 27(IIFT), 38(Venky) and 49(FMS).
For the final round the teams had to switch to the top gear as it was time to perform or perish – do or die at every question. With two teams getting eliminated after every round it came down to the last two questions. With Venky at 42 and FMS at 49 the quiz was all set for a thrilling finish. The boys from Venky were in no mood to make life easy for FMS as they opted for a 15 pointer and they got it right too. Scorecard before the final question- Venky- 57, FMS- 49. FMS now had two choices, either opt for an 8 pointer and come level with Venky and test their knowledge (and luck) in the tie-breaker or go for a 15 pointer and win it fair and square. But when FMS identified him as Nek Chand, Venky did a barely audible high-five and exchanged smiles since they knew they were going back home with deeper pockets than FMS.
Final Scores- Venky- 57, FMS- 41, IIFT- 34
