Rules are pretty much same
a)Top four team directly qualify the finals.
b)Remaining two teams are qualifies through wild card entry. One team selected from (Odd number ) from 5 to 15 . Other team is selected from even numbers from 6 to 16
c)Wild cards round is only through buzzer. It is exiting.

Anirudh and Aditya qualified into finals as Wild card entrants from odd numbers. 2 teams were in a tie break : 2 questions were passed without answering by the 2 teams in the evens set finally Sumit and Nitin from NIT won the the Wild Card 2nd Round

5) Shanshak and Sairam , ICFAI , Chennai.
6) Chitra Raghunathan and Viswa , Indian School of business.

Suggestions: Brush up your memory about the old advertisements .There is a pinch more easy advertisement in the prelims. Go through some IT questions
Complaints: It happened last year, it happened in ET classroom quiz. Corporates keep on participating in TC Campus Edition..its sad to see some good student teams missing out at the cost of fake students. Participants blatantly cheat in prelims and treating it as yet another exam.I am not blaming organizers, its pretty tough to conduct a fair prelims unless participants are honest and have minimum values
