The best indeed comes from Kumasi as Prempeh College wins 2021 #NSMQ

Written by Smartandstuck

Prempeh College has won the 2021 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ), to bring their championship tally to five.

They won with 53 points as against 49 points by the Presbyterian Boys’ Senior High School, Legon (PRESEC.)

Keta Senior High and Technical School (KETASCO) came third with 30 points.

It was the first time KETASCO was reaching the final stage of the competition.

KETASCO earned GH¢3000 as their prize money from Absa Bank as bronze winners.

PRESEC, Legon did very well and was close but it was not their year, said the Quiz Mistress, Dr Elsie Kaufmann when she announced the final results.

Dr Kaufmann congratulated the PRESECANS, who were hoping to win the trophy for the seventh time in line with their slogan, “We are ‘SEVEN’ a living God”.

As silver medalists, their prize money is GH¢4900 from Absa Bank. PRESEC is still in the lead for winning the contest six times.

Prempeh College currently occupies the second position on the table of schools with the most wins, having won the competition five times as against PRESEC’s six.

It was host and win for the Prempeh boys, commonly referred to as ‘Amanfoo‘ who from the beginning of the competition said they were going to paint the city green by winning the trophy and present it to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

As expected, it was a two horse race between Prempeh College and PRESEC who were the defending champions as the first time finalists, KETASCO could not soar.

The God of ‘1onders’ from the Oti and Volta Zone champions made history as first timers in the final but could not make history with a win.

PRESEC, the defending champions made their intention known to retain the trophy when they won the first, second and third rounds of the competition.

In the first round PRESEC opened a one point lead between them and the eventual winners and increased to five in the second round.

The gap was however narrowed to two points in the third round.
