This year's winners were Nick Sharp (English), Stefano Mariani (History & Politics), Charles Oakley (Applied Maths), and David Whitley (English) making it three wins in the last four years for Oxford. They were presented with the trophy by actor Pete Postlethwaite. The new trophy is a new and less elaborate version of Adrian Moakes' sculpture that had been used in the previous ten series.

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.
