St Peter's Senior High Crowned Champions Of 2018 National Science and Maths Quiz

Hstory has been made as Eastern Region's , St Peter's Senior High School has won the National Science and Maths Quiz  (NSMQ) on July 5th, 2018 after defeating West Africa Senior High School and Adisadel College.

The Nkwatia-based school nearer to Presbyterian University College, in Abetifi surprised many as Adisco was the favourite ahead of West Africa SHS.

 St. Peter’s SHS, represented by Kissi Annoh Kwaku and Fenny Benjamin, had 45 points, West Africa SHS had 44 points, whilst Adisadel College trailed with 39 points.

West Africa SHS’ Arkoh Sahene and Tade Abdul Hameed led the pack going into the final round, but St. Peter’s SHS answered two riddles in the final round for six points to overcome their two-point deficit to the Adenta-based school.

At that point, Adisadel College were all but out of the contest in the fourth round after faltering on multiple true or false questions.

Adisadel College and West Africa SHS started off the tournament as seeded schools, while St Peter’s started off in the preliminary stages because of its weak performances in recent years despite being regarded as a science and math powerhouse.

Going into the final, it was clear the Nkwatia school was the underdog after a relatively tame semifinal performance.

Adisadel College was making its fourth consecutive final appearance, whilst  West Africa SHS knocked out defending champions, Prempeh College in its semifinal contest.

Meanwhile, since the inception, only 11 schools out of the 475 schools to have competed have won the competition .

However, President Akufo-Addo has promised to host the winners of this year’s NSMQ at the Jubilee House in Accra.
