I was late to the quiz. I hated it as I never like to go to a quiz late. It’s all because of the invite which said 3.30. I was right in time for the wild card rounds ( there were 2 as there a lot of teams on same score). There was a team from Symbiosis Law School, Pune. They were allowed to participate from Chennai as they are going for official Geneva trip on Pune Round date.
