University Challenge - Lowest Scores

Not much is known about the lowest scores from the Bamber Gascoigne series, except that the lowest score ever was amassed in 1971-2, when a Sussex team, fresh from two series wins, managed only 10 points. It is also claimed that in 1977 the Brunel team were the only team to still be on zero points at the half-time interval.

The following are the lowest scores since the show returned in 1994.
