Winning for the first time was Warwick University (Rory Gill - English & Italian Literature; Harold Wyber - Economics; Daisy Christodoulou - English Literature; Prakash Patel - Chemistry), who received their trophy from Ann Widdecombe. For the third time a team that lost in the first round made it to the final, the others being Durham in 2000, and St John's, Oxford in 2001.

Also for the third time there was a tie in choosing the four highest-scoring losers, and the tie was broken as Manchester and Reading achieved their score "in a shorter time". Presumably this means that they scored their 150 from fewer starters – ie by answering a higher percentage of their bonus questions correctly.

Winners are given in bold, and the four highest scoring first round losers in italics. An italicised score indicates that the result was decided by a tie-break.
