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 – Prempeh College and Achimota School.
They were behind 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 and one of them was answered wrongly by all the schools.
Prempeh College may be four-time champions but they 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
