Such an intense competition as Adisadel College qualifies to the grand final of National Science and Maths Quiz 2020.
The marathon contest took audience time by thrilling and disappointing.
Keta SHTS flustered their opponents as they were leading the first round with 13 points leaving Achimota and Adisadel by 11 and 10 points respectively. Though Keta SHTS was leading the race, the rounds were not over, four more.
Adisadel College started the round 2 with a massive comeback to frustrate their competitors that they were the best among. At the end of the second round, Adisadel gained 7 additional points to their previous one leaving them with 17 points while Achimota School drops four points.
Achimota School was feeling the heat from their opponents thus they made a substitution by bringing in their heroine lady, Afua who performed marvellously at the quarter final stage. Adisadel College also opted for the same decision by bring in their savior Mbebo.
Afua alongside her partner secured 3 points by solving ‘Problem of the Day.’ Keta SHTS gained 2 points while Adisadel failed to secure even a point in this round.
All eyes were on Adisadel’s Mbebo, as we began the fourth round; ‘True or False.’ Mbebo and his partner did a marvellous work in this round as they answered most of the questions to their advantage. As this round came to an end, Adisadel College was leading with 18 points. Achimota School had 14 points and 13 points for Keta SHTS.
The riddle round was the next, with much anticipation, this round was the deciding round. Achimota School had 20 points courtesy of Afua, leading the marathon. Audience thought that was all but the heroic work of Mbebo answering in the last riddle was something else.
What a shock?! The emotion and teasing were so much to handle in the auditorium.
What an excellent finisher? Audience reactions left the whole room with excitement and disappointment for losing schools.
Here’s the results of the competition.
