NSMQ has not made the desired impact
Mr Daniel Fenyi, who spoke to YEN.com.gh about the NSMQ, said the competition is yet to make the desired impact.
He is advocating for the quiz questions to be made into a text material and given to students.
"The quiz has not made any significant impact. The quiz has gradually been turned into a mere game, hence people approach it as they would for any football competition.
"The students only come to show their brilliance, market their schools, and it ends there. There are no innovations or advancement of knowledge in the competition.
"At best, the quiz questions can be compiled into a pamphlet and sold or given to science students across the country to learn. With this, the frontiers of knowledge could be advanced.
