  1. Thanks for posting! Great match!! Sad that Cowan didn't get credit for a correct answer: he answered "Betta" but Paxman said no and that the "correct" answer was "Siamese Fighting Fish". However they are synonymous. I kept waiting in vain for Paxman or the producers to rectify their mistake. For shame, UC.

  2. +psimanjuntak You have to have plenty of maths/science students- there's just such a high component of those kinds of questions- particularly as starters. Although from my observations, this series has also included plenty of humanities-type bonuses in this first round so far so if it's any indication, these teams will need to brush up on an atlas.

  3. are you yaorito1? I wish UC had a bit more of maths/science questions. I feel literature/art dominates any other fields in this.

  4. Thank you for posting! Great match. Good score Emmanuel-Cambridge but would have been higher if the guys had listened to Ward.

  5. Oh whoa, are you by any means Indonesian? If so, I'm Indonesian as well! I noticed you have a Batak's family name.

    Cheers from your fellow University Challenge fan and thanks for uploading!

  6. 'Bobby Seagull'? Please. His real name is Jose. A 32-year-old man naming himself after a bird to 'prove' how high his ambitions fly… ridiculous. Also, it is obvious that he is not captain of that team on merit. Ever heard of 'positive discrimination'? Not enough Muslims from Newham on 'University Challenge', so the BBC appoints one as captain. This show, like all BBC output, is becoming a 'politically-correct' fix.

  7. Jesus I thought I knew a lot about Asoiaf but couldnt answer any of the bonuses on it. You had to know a lot more than just the noble houses.

  8. It was Tom Hill who got Emmanuel over the hill with 3 timely buzzes. They looked to be losing
    most of the time. Seagull seems to be full of spirit.

  9. Well Emmanuel won me over even tho Nottingham's my alma mater. Nottingham started well but over the whole match Emmanuel played better and just knew more.

  10. its sad that they said hungary for the 1 euro coin question when hungary hasnt even adopted the euro. should know better smh
