This year’s edition of the National Science and Maths Quiz has been postponed indefinitely due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in the country that has infected about 2,169 persons.

Organizers of the annual competition, Primetime, say they are closely monitoring the crisis and will share updates on new dates for the Championship as soon as they are available.

The statement read “NSMQ postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The NSMQ will no longer take place in June – July as scheduled.”

The quiz is Ghana’s biggest academic competition with a huge following involving the old and the young because of the bragging rights winning schools have over other competitors for the period they reign as champions.

Since the competition commenced sometime in 1993, no girls’ school has ever won it. Champions have come from co-educational and boys’ schools.

Last year’s winner, St. Augustine’s College faced five-time winners Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School and three-time winners St. Peter’s Senior High School.

Three people who stole the show in the 2019 edition were Newton of AUGUSCO, Nathaniel of PRESEC, and Fenny of PERSCO. But Newton won himself some admiration from all as he was widely touted as the ‘GOAT’ of the Rounds 4 and 5, where he provided no wrong answers to all questions asked.
