Persons who were rooting for Osei Tutu SHS to advance to the semi-finals of the National Science and Maths Quiz were left disappointed.
This comes after Opoku Ware School took the first position by getting 45 points, whereas Osei Tutu also came in second with 43 points, with St. John’s School taking the third spot with 18 points.
Expressing disappointment, some disgruntled Osei Tutu SHS supporters who reacted to the post by NSMQ on the X platform of NSMQ opined that the eventual winners cheated.
One tweep @SimmsNative, who shared his displeasure about the contest, raised objections about the last riddle Opoku Ware answered.
He said the contestant of Opoku Ware should not have had an opportunity to give another answer, especially after he got it wrong on his first attempt.
"The last riddle wasn’t fair, you cheated OT. Why should they say it again knowing very well they will change their answer," he stated
NSMQ need reforms
Speaking to YEN.com.gh, an educationist, Mr Daniel Fenyi appealed to the organizers of the NSMQ to consider making some reforms.
He explained that the quiz may not be making its desired impact because it was too theoretical.
"The students are generally tested on their ability to memorize and recollect. We need to introduce practical aspects too, where the students could be put in the science lab, do experiments and come out with products and findings".
