  • The trophy and title were awarded to the Christ Church team comprising Alex Bubb, Charles Markland, Max Kaufman and Susannah Darby.




  • In March 2009, it was revealed that Charles Markland, a member of the winning team from Christ Church, Oxford, had transferred his studies to Balliol Collegemarker halfway through the series. He claimed that his team captain had contacted a researcher concerning the situation, and had been told that this was not a problem and that the same team should be maintained for continuity purposes.
