An elimination round was held earlier that month and four students (from each house) were selected to represent their respective houses to be quizzed in different fields such as Sports, Entertainment, Current affairs, Books and Academic subjects such as English, Maths, Science, History, Geography and many more.

The quiz comprised of five rounds.. namely, Kaun Banega Champion where each team was asked two multiple choice questions, an audio round identifying tunes of cellular companies and musical instruments. There was also a visual round identifying animated films and company logos. The most exciting was the rapid fire round and the last round 'Try your Luck' where the children were asked to burst balloons and answer the questions written on slips of paper that were in those balloons.

The Loyola House were the winners of Brainwave 2016-17.

All in all it was an entertaining and engaging morning that compelled even the audience present to put their thinking caps on a morning truly well spent!
