The winning team consisted of Luke Pitcher, Dorjana Sirola, Tim Austen, and Vicki Wood, students of Classics, Comparative Philology, Biochemistry, and English respectively. The presentation of the trophy following the final was made by philosopher Baroness Mary Warnock.

As ever, winners are in bold, highest-scoring losers in italics. Italicised scores indicate the result was decided by a tie-break. For the first time, there was a tie for the fourth highest-scoring losing team between Leeds and Cardiff. Leeds qualified having achieved their 145 "in a shorter time, and with fewer wrong answers".
