After the first-stage of screening with a quiz on India, a group of 50 selected students moved to Group Dynamics round wherein contestants spoke for and against the topic, “Corporate jobs are a new form of slavery.”

Ten of the best contestants made it to the final round, a ‘Stress Interview,’ which tested the poise of students in battling provocative questions.

The students were judged by a panel led by G. Balakrishnan, quiz master and former Vice-Principal, St. Joseph’s College.

Khaauvyaa of Cauvery College for Women finished the runner up and A. Mohan Raj of Government Arts and Science College, Kumulur, bagged the third position.

The top three prize winners walked away with cash rewards.
