For the third consecutive year, Akwatia-based St. Roses Senior High has been kicked out the National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) at the regional qualifiers.

The all-girls school pushed the Tuesday’s contest into a tie-break in the final round after trailing throughout but they failed to finish it off.

They would make the trip to University of Ghana in June for the Nationals ahead of the prestigious Roses.
