Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Preliminary Stage of the 2021 edition of the NSMQ would be held at Regional/Zonal levels – like it was done in 2020 – as a means of reducing the number of participating schools that would converge in camp at the competition. However, due to the varying number of schools in the individual regions/zones, resulting in incomplete fixtures, it was necessary that some schools be invited to get a minimum number of three schools per contest.
Thus, these eleven schools were selected to participate in the Preliminary Stage, together with the 108 regional qualifiers. Even though they lost their individual contests, the eleven schools were selected for being top runners-up in their various regions.
Below is a list of the eleven schools and their scores:
Yaa Asantewaa Girls’ SHS (43)
Nsaba Presby SHS (34)
Eguafo Abrem SHS (34)
St Augustine’s SHS, Bogoso (29)
Fijai SHS (29)
Manya Krobo SHS (37)
Zion College (32)
Kpedze SHS (22)
Mawuli School (22)
St Francis Seminary SHS (26)
Acherensua SHS (26)
