ULTIMATUM Second Edition, is NAFL's flagship Commerce and Humanities fest with six extraordinary events that tackled real-world frontiers of investment, law, journalism, public relations, and even a cricket auction! An entirely senior school student-led effort, the events upped their ante even further and made for pure exhilaration and a super-charged atmosphere on 7th and 8th January 2022!
22 schools participated from around Bengaluru, Mysore, Chennai, West Bengal, Noida and Singapore. The spirited involvement of the judges was another memorable aspect of the event, with NAFL alumni judges for day one of the event and professional judges for day two joining us from around India, USA and Alaska, from a spectrum of time zones!
The 'Best School Award' for the second year in succession went to NPSI Singapore!
I really appreciate the effort taken to prepare the case studies and events!
We’ve attended our fair share of online interschool events over the past two years, and we’ve honestly not come across one as well organised and structured as this was!
The questions asked by the panel were truly amazing!
We had immense fun taking part and it’s been one heck of an experience!
It was so great at Ultimatum! I'll definitely consider doing it again next year!

I was so impressed and proud of the wonderful event they put up, and would always love to be back.

Do your research, believe in your ideas and keep moving forward. I hope to see your names in the lights when all of you create unicorn ideas of the future!

Great session. These kinds of role play help you understand the real world, human behaviour…people are not what they seem! You have to play according to the situation in real life.

Well-articulated, well thought through! Very good job! Try and include legal precedents into your presentations. I see a tremendous improvement in how the competition has evolved!
