The event, which began with a uniform inspection by officers from "non-conflicting" BB Companies; Mr. George Ong (BBM Headquarters), Ms. Tan Giok Hui (Captain of 1st PJ), and Mr. Aldrin (Captain of 14th KL). As squads completed inspection, they were sent off one by one to carry out their drill sequences in the main drill ground (basically in a basketball court). The judges were from the Malaysian Army. 
After a 3-hour long competition, the results announced were as follows:

Junior Section

Section Section 
Champion - 10th Kuala Lumpur Company
1st Runner Up - 4th Kuala Lumpur Company

3rd Kuala Lumpur Company was placed fourth in the Senior category and sixth in Junior category. It's the first time since the KL State Drill Competition conception the company has failed to place. Though beaten and bruised, it was a necessary humbling experience for their company in order to become better. The Boys were still proud of those who were bold to represent the company in the competition despite the lack of training.
