ALOR SETAR: SMK Sultan Badlishah won the upper secondary school category in the RHB-The Star Mighty Minds 2014 here.

The team comprised Form Five students M. Gauuthameiswaran, R. Subhash Daniel Moses and B. Athiseshan.

Gauuthameiswaran said they were surprised to win as the other teams “were so good”.

“It took us a month to prepare,” said the ecstatic 17-year-old after the announcement of the results at the Alor Star Mall on Saturday.

In the lower secondary school category, Form Three students Sara Syakirah Md Jalani, Wan Nurafiqah Izyani Wan Mohd Rushidi and Nur Hidayah Abd Wahab from SMK Agama Kedah made up the winning team.

Finalists in each category must undergo three rounds of competition. In the first round, they are required to answer multiple choice questions followed by completing a hands-on project based on a given theme.

Lastly, they must go on stage to answer subjective questions in a buzzer quiz.

Among those present were The Star senior regional manager (operations) David Yeoh and RHB Bank Berhad assistant branch manager Zamri Saad.

The competition is jointly organised by Star Publications (M) Bhd and RHB Banking Group.

After all the 14 state challenges have ended, the champions will head to Klang Valley for the national finals.
