Corpus Christi college win rescinded
Published March 3, 2009
An investigation into last week’s University Challenge final has resulted in winner’s Corpus Christi having to hand the trophy over to the University of Manchester. A joint statement from the BBC and Granada reads: The University Challenge rules on student eligibility are that students taking part must be registered at their university or college for the duration of the recording of the series. Whilst obviously not intending to, Corpus Christi broke this important rule where other universities and colleges taking part adhered to it.
