Tata Crucible Questions 2012- Jamshedpur Campus

Krishan Kumar from Jamshedpur reviews the Jamshedpur Tata Crucible Campus 2012

The 2012 Campus Edition of the Tata Crucible Quiz kicked off in Jamshedpur with around 90 teams participating in the prelims. The top 4 teams were selected directly from the prelims while the 5th and 6th team were selected from the Wild Card entry. XLRI had a monopolistic rule here as all 6 teams were from the same college and only two teams could go through to the Regional final.

The Wild Card questions were basically content asked in the previous editions’ Tata Crucible Questions

After the prelims and wild card questions, the Top six teams on stage were:

1 Chinmay  and  Sanchit  from  XLRI

2 Partha  and  Abhishek  from  NIT  ROURKELA

3 Debjit Roy and Pranshu from BIT MESRA

4 Ankit  and Deepanjan from  XLRI

5 Sumit  and  Deepak  from NIT JAMSHEDPUR

6 Mrityunjay  and Ulaganath from XLRI

In the end, Ankit & Deepanjan from XLRI won the Jamshedpur Edition of the Tata Crucible Campus 2012 with a huge margin while a question on Dimple Kapadia decided the tiebreaker between XLRI team 2 and BIT Mesra which was won by Mrityunjan & Ulag from XLRI..
