TCS IT Wiz Format: The written prelims had a set of 20 questions for all the teams at the venue. The top six teams from the written prelim qualified for the Regional final.

 

The highlight of the Regional finals of the quiz was the animation based quiz software with a unique format created by Quizmaster Pickbrain and his team. The rounds were:

 

  • FLIPBOARDING – The teams were given a choice to answer the direct question or FLIP the same for an easier question but with a lower value. A Flipped question if unanswered passed to the next team at the base value.

  • DRONING –The world is undergoing a rapid change in terms of supply chains with the induction of drones among their ranks. Taking a cue from this, the round comprised a set of countries on the globe and the team could choose a country to deliver the drone. They would get a question related to IT from the country of delivery. A passing round would test the team’s ability in terms of the global spectrum of information technology.

  • Disruptive Thinking - A new buzzer round with five clues of which only three relate to the disrupter. Teams needed to identify the disrupter from the clues.

  • SO LO MO– (social-local-mobile.) Another buzzer round wherein teams were given a question each from Social, Local and Mobile platforms, representing a modern connected world.

  • @TCS – a round from the world of TCS
