Wesley Girls’ SHS’s points have dipped after the Speed Race. The wrong answers from the Cape Coast-based school have done them in.
They now have nine points, two less than what they had in the first round.
Tepa SHS however increase their tally slightly; as they continue their search for an upset.
St. Peter’s Boys’, at this point do not seem like they can be toppled. The defending champions extend the lead as they gun for a second consecutive final.
The scores at this point stand at: St Peter’s, 31pts – Tepa SHS, 16pts – Wesley Girls’, 9pts
The Problem of the Day is being solved by the contestants. A single question to all three schools worth 10 points.
The second semifinal contest in the ongoing National Science and Maths Quiz takes stage.
In action are the defending champions, St Peter’s Boys’ SHS, one-time finalist, Wesley Girls’ SHS, and Tepa SHS.
The defending champions have won the competition three times and are hoping for at least a presence in the grand finale.
Wesley Girls’ SHS, however, are keen on their second appearance at the grand finale and a chance to be the first girls’ school to win the ultimate. They defeated four-time champions, Prempeh College and two-time winners, Achimota School to get to this point.
However, competing against the two top dogs is Tepa SHS.
They are undeniably underdogs but have had a good run to this point. They defeated Accra Academy and St John’s Grammar to qualify for the semifinal.
Can the Ashanti Region-based school defy the odds and make it to the grand finale?
