T.I. Ahmadiyya Senior High School, Kumasi has withdrawn from the 2022 National Championship of the National Science & Maths Quiz (NSMQ), which started on Monday, October 10, 2022 at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology.
The school, popularly known as Real Amass, was part of nine (9) top runners-up from the 2022 Regional Qualifiers invited to participate at the Preliminary Stage of the National Championship.
In a letter to Primetime, producers of the NSMQ, Mr. Ahmed K. Boampong, Assistant Headmaster of the school, indicated that after the school’s defeat during the Ashanti Regional Qualifiers, their contestants concentrated on the WASSCE.
“When the call-up was extended to us, our contestants had all gone home. When we assembled them finally, we realised they had all gone rusty. We tried our very best to bring them up to a level that will make them make a mark during the competition, but try as we did, our students were still not pulling themselves.”
T.I. AMASS was scheduled to compete in Contest 22 against Kumasi High School and Samuel Otu Presby SHS on Wednesday, October 12, 2022 at the Saarah-Mensah Auditorium.
Following T.I. AMASS’ withdrawal from the competition, Kumasi High School and Samuel Otu Presby SHS will be joined by a top runner-up in the last contest of the Preliminary Stage on Thursday, October 13, 2022.
