Wesley Girls’ SHS has progressed to the semifinal of the ongoing National Science and Maths Quiz after a monumental win over two of the best schools in the competition.
The Cape Coast-based school has kept the hope of a girls’ school winning the 26-year-old Primetime show alive.
The girls displayed a consistent performance of accuracy to kick-out the two favourites; four-time champions, Prempeh College and Achimota School, two-time champions and the reigning Greater Accra Regional champions.
Wesley Girls were two points behind Achimota School after the penultimate round but their speed in the riddles which is the final round won the day for them.
They answered three of the four questions correctly while one of the questions was answered wrongly by all the schools.
Prempeh College may be four-time champions but they were not at the party at all and finished in the last place.
The final scores were: Wesley Girls’, 57pts – Achimota School, 49pts and Prempeh College, 27pts
The only Girls school left in the competition, Wesley Girls SHS say they are ready to progress in the National Science and Maths Quiz.
They, however, have to go past four-time champions Prempeh College and two-time winners, Achimota School.
The stakes are high in this contest because no girl school has ever won the competition in its 26 years of existence.
