The heat is on and tensions are high as the grand finale of 2023 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ23) comes off on Tuesday, October 31.
The competing schools for the ultimate prize are Opoku Ware School, Presec Legon and Achimota School.
As usual, the competition which continues to draw attention in both mainstream and social media have enflamed an interesting discussion on which school is the best contender to earn the bragging rights of NSMQ23 champions.
As an old student of Achimota Secondary School, actor John Dumelo has launched full support for his alma mater.
He acknowledged that even though Presec Legon are deemed favourites and are looking forward to win the title for the eighth time, there was no way they were going to win over Achimota.
In a twitter post yesterday, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary candidate for Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency said he will walk barefoot backwards from Ayawaso West Wuogon to Presec school should the latter beat his school
“I am a proud Achimotan but If presec wins the #NSMQ2023 on the 31st I will walk barefoot backwards from Ayawaso West Wuogon to presec school! They can’t win over Motown! Presec? Tweeeaa!!!,” he tweeted Sunday, October 22, 2023.
Meanwhile, a petition filed by Prempeh College challenging the semifinal results of the 2023 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) between Prempeh, Opoku Ware and Pope Johns Senior High School has been thrown out. (NSMQ2023: Prempeh College’s petition protesting semifinal results thrown out)
Opoku Ware beat Prempeh and Pope Johns to go through to the grand finale with Presec and Achimota School.
Prempeh College, however, raised issues with the semifinal results, which kicked them out of the competition and took to social media to challenge the results.
In dismissing the petition, the management of Primetime, organisers of the National Science and Maths Quiz defended the ruling of the Quiz Mistress and said Prempeh College was not “cheated” as was claimed on social media.
