Prempeh College hammer PRESEC, KETASCO to win NSMQ2021
Prempeh College has been crowned the Champions of the 2021 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) competition held in Kumasi.
The school lifted its fifth title after beating competitions from 6-time winners PRESEC-Legon from Accra and first time-finalist Keta Senior High Technical School from the Volta Region (Keta SHTS/KETASCO).
The coveted NSMQ trophy was being contested by these three top schools including title-defenders Presbyterian Boys’ SHS (PRESEC), Legon.
Prempeh College emerged winners after grabbing 53 points beating their contenders, Presec Legon, who had 49 points and Keta Senior High and Technical school who managed just 30 points after five rounds of intense questions and answers.
It was a fierce battle between PRESEC and Prempeh during the contest in the second round as Ketasco failed to answer a single question in the second round of the contest.
Meanwhile, former President John Kuffuor, an Old Student of Prempeh College has taken to his Twitter page to congratulate the Amanfoo boys.
The competition was hosted at the KNUST campus in Kumasi for the first time.
