Starting 13 February 2020 in the Central Regional qualifiers, Mfantsipim School will be out to redeem itself as it will host the NSMQ in the region.
At the one-eighth stage of the 2019 edition of the National Science and Maths Quiz, the two-time champions endured a humiliating knockout after woefully losing to its tough competitors, St. Augustine’s College who went ahead to win the contest.
The loss ensured for the first time in seven years they failed to make a quarter-final appearance.
The exclusive school of boys would face Jukwa SHS, Assin Nsuta SHS Abakrampa SHS and Senya SHS in their quest to make a quick return to the prelims of Primetime’s 27-year-old high school quiz telecast show.
Nothing short of a masterclass show wouldn’t be enough to deliver the message that the famous red and black boys need to hear from their rivals; given the severity of their failure at Augusco’s hands last year.
Nonetheless, judging their track record, these applicants should only be normal for Mfantsipim College, who would then expect to pass through the prelims that would then launch a potential set-up with St. Augustine’s for the vengeance they so seek.
It’s a shame for Mfantsipim because we don’t reach the quarterfinals for the first time since 2012 Well done @Augusco We wish you all the best to step forward. Mfantsipim must restart. PIC.twitter.com / m4grzHHhld—

It’s qualifiers for now. In the Upper East region of Bolgatanga Girls ‘ SHS, another school would be held on February the 15th, where girls ‘ schools face a tough challenge as they are in the same category as favourite girls, Notre Dame Seminary, and SHS.
The competition is also being grabbed by Fumbusi SHS, Bawku SHTS and the Bolgatanga Technical Institute
Nonetheless, the girls have a higher profile than their rivals, with more success in the recent competition.
Bolgatanga SHS is finding another star in the prelims rivalry with Paga SHS, Binduri Community Day SHTS and Kanjarga SHS as they happen to be the only obstacles in their way.
If its previous performances in the contest at the regional level are to be reached, then BigBoss will easily qualify.
In 2019, they earned the highest score in the Upper East region but were sent out to the preliminary stages of the nationals by eventual champions, Augusco.
