NSMQ 2021: AUGUSCO Bows Out To Chemu SHS

NSMQ 2021: AUGUSCO Bows Out To Chemu SHS

The level of competition that characterised the second quarter-final competition turned out to be intriguing as the NSMQ favourite was kicked out of the competition.

Augusco were in a clear lead in the second round when they scored 35 points ahead of Chemu with only a three-point margin.

 

Supporters of both schools were virtually sitting on pins and needles as the slightest mistake by any of the sides could deny one the bragging rights, but Chemu SHS stunned their close contenders when they answered the last riddle correctly.

The keenly contested race entered the ‘Problem of the Day’ round but unfortunately, all the schools recorded low marks, denying them any chance of winning the Prudential Life NSMQ Star award.

Yes! The competition was full of surprises and Chemu made it count in an incredible manner from Round 4 through to the last round.

It took the last riddle to separate the Chemu men from the ‘loud’ Augusco boys who were keen on carrying the day.

Augusco tried but it was just an unlucky day for them.

At the end of the contest, Chemu SHS accumulated 47 points after their witty display. Augusco managed 44 points while Kanton SHS scored 30 points.

It is now time for Augusco to row back home after their humiliating defeat because their chant of “action nkotsee” could not land them any honour.

Meanwhile, Chemu SHS, St. Augustine’s College and Kanton SHS earned Gh¢1880, Gh¢1,760 and Gh¢1,200 respectively for the Absa Money Zone based on their total scores.

 

You can imagine the moment of emotions that greeted the aftermath of the competition; and already, St. Augustine’s College is being trolled on Twitter for that painful loss.

In Accra there is a lagoon named Chemu, thus, part of the trolls is a reference to Augusco having fallen into the Chemu Lagoon.

Chemu SHS is likely to meet St. Peter’s SHS and Presec-Legon in the semis.

2021 NSMQ: Prempeh College Beat Presec And Keta To Win Competition

2021 NSMQ: Prempeh College Beat Presec And Keta To Win Competition

The much touted phrase ‘serving a living God’ by the Presbyterian Boys Secondary School did not materialise as God, instead decided to ‘Glory5’ Prempeh College.

The ‘Amanfuo’ has been crowned the champions of the 2021 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) after attaining a substantial victory over the ‘odade3s’ and the ‘Dzoloalians (Keta SHTS) in the final contest.

The race, right from the beginning of the first round, saw a keen and stiff competition by all the three schools as they lock horns neck to neck for a lead.

Although Prempeh College won, it was a super tough five rounds for all the three schools.

At the end of that tough round, Presec-Legon scored 17 points, followed by Prempeh College with 16 points while Keta SHTS garnered 15 points.

The second round’s speed race got intense as all the finalists, especially Ketasco, scrambled to accumulate points.

But the ‘Christian gentlemen’ still maintained their dominance with a five-point margin ahead of Prempeh.

The ‘Amanfuor’ finished with 21 points while Presec beat them with 26 points.

Problem of the Day favoured the contestants of Prempeh College as they secured a perfect score of 10 points.

That feat landed them the Prudential Life NSMQ Star award worth GH₵4,000. Each of the three contestants will receive GH¢1,000 with their teacher getting the rest.

Both Presec-Legon and Keta SHTS scored seven points each at the end of the third round.

The True or False round had the ‘Dzolalians’ substituting Francisca Lamini with James Lutterodt. Presec equally made a substitution for Joel Aboagye to take over from Henry Otumfuor.

Although they did not make any substitution, Prempeh had almost all their answers right in the fourth round.

Prempeh College’s Evans Oppong ‘magically’ kept his cool to conveniently respond to the questions correctly.

At the end of the fourth round, Prempeh took over from their fierce rivals with only a point-margin.

The highly-anticipated race was finally decided in the last round where the boys from the ‘University of Sofoline’ proved their mettle to defeat the Presecans.

Eden Obeng was quick to answer the first riddle correctly to put Prempeh ahead of Presec.

As if that was it all; he made it matter most when he ‘tamed’ the Presec boys by quickly answering the second riddle right!

You can just imagine it. Presec’s Joel Aboagye attempted to answer the third riddle but woefully lost it. He, however, got the last riddle right but that was not enough to grant them any better chance of winning the coveted prize.

The dream of claiming the trophy for the seventh time got thwarted, alas!

That sent the supporters of Prempeh into frenzy as they roared in massive jubilation in the KNUST’s Great Hall. The host and win agenda finally became a reality when the ‘Seniors’ floored the boys with an outstanding brilliance.

Five! Five!! Five is all that’s running through the minds and lips of all those who supported Prempeh’s journey in the 2021 NSMQ from the beginning through to the finals.

The trophy has been retained in Kumasi.

At the end of the contest, Prempeh College amassed 53 points while Presec-Legon accumulated 49 points with Ketasco managing 30 points.

Keta Senior High Technical School could not lift the first trophy but it is doubtless that they have made a name for themselves after rising through the stages to feature in the finals for the first time.

And here are the winners for the 2021 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ), Prempeh College. It is now time to glori-FIVE the Lord.
