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.

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