The participants will be allowed as many as four free preparatory tests and the main school quiz will also be free of cost. Undergoing a stiff competition and comprehensive selection process, the top teams representing different states will enter a 6- episode long TV quiz which will be premiered on the Discovery Channel and Discovery kids next year.
