St. Augustine’s College (Augusco) has advanced to the quarterfinal of the ongoing National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) after defeating Achimota School and Tamale Islamic Science SHS (TISSEC).

The Cape Coast giants dominated the entire contest, leaving no room for Accra-based Achimota or the Tamale-based school to cause an upset.

Achimota, despite failing to win the contest, also played second-fiddle to TISSEC, thus placed last after the five rounds.

The Monday evening loss spells more doom for Achimota School. Their performance in the Primetime competition in recent years is just a mismatch to their widely known status.

Perhaps, it is time to redefine the two-time champions instead of classifying them based on past glories.

Achimota School will once again begin their next campaign in the NSMQ from the regional qualifiers while Augusco maintains their seeded spot.

The contest itself, though mathematically decided in the final round, was always Augusco’s to lose.

And they did not allow that, swinging at full length from start to finish, earning the NSMQ star in the process—a prize money given to any team which scores a perfect score in Round Three.

The two other schools did match that feat but they are eliminated nonetheless.
