Champions of 2022 National Science & Maths Quiz, Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School, PRESEC-Legon, have presented their trophy to the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at the Manhyia Palace today, October 28, 2022.
The delegation which was led by Prof. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei (Otumfuo Hiahene) included the Chairman of Primetime Limited, Kwaku Mensa-Bonsu, the Managing Director, Nana Akua Ankomah-Asare, facilitator of NSMQ, Elsie Effah Kaufmann and the Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School (PRESEC) contestants. Presbyterian Boys Senior High School (PRESEC), Legon, made it a record of seven-time winners of the National Science and Maths Quiz on Wednesday night, when they pulled a final round surprise to overtake Kumasi based Prempeh College to win the ultimate in 2022.
They pulled the surprise in the final round 5 when they overtook Prempeh College who had led in the earlier rounds.
PRESEC ended the final round with 50 points as against 41 by Prempeh College and 32 points by Adisadel College.
However, in the fifth and final round, the boys from Legon in Accra answered three out of the five riddles to overtake Prempeh.
When PRESEC got the third riddle right, students of Prempeh College began to file out of the hall, as it had become clear to them that their school’s dream of lifting the trophy for a record-equalling sixth time could not materialise.
PRESEC, by Wednesday’s victory, has not only maintained its record as the school with the most wins in the competition — seven — but also widened the gap between it and Prempeh College in terms of winning the quiz to two.
At the end of the competition, PRESEC had 50 points, as against 41 by Prempeh College and 32 by Adisadel College.
