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!!
