History at NSMQ finals
Even though Gadzo's KETASCO could not win the ultimate, they came third behind PRESEC and PREMPEH, their qualification set impressive records.
Young man who struggled academically at the University of Ghana graduates with 1st-class after 9 years
KETASCO became the first school from the Volta Region to ever qualify for the final in the long history of the competition.
Speedmaster and predictor
Apart from qualifying his school to the finals, Gadzo also distinguished himself as a brilliant student who could answer questions before they ended.
On many occasions, he was the first to ring the bell even before the quiz mistress, Professor Elsie Effah Kaufmann, read half of the question.
In an interview after the quiz, Bright explained how he was able to predict the answers ahead of time.
According to Gadzo, although Prof Elsie Effah Kaufmann had not finished reading out all the parameters associated with solving the problems, he had already figured out that the ones she provided were enough to find the final answers.
Francis Lamini scores second 8As within a year
Gadzo is not the only member of the Ketasco NSMQ team to have scored 8As in the WASSCE. His partner, Fransisca Lamini also bagged straight As.
Per this result, Lamini has blown away the WASSCE twice within the past one year.
As previously reported by YEN.com.gh, the NSMQ star had 8As in the 2020 WASSCE as a private candidate
She achieved that feat while still in her second year at the Keta Senior High School.
