The Ashanti Region-based Konongo-Odumase SHS dominated the entire competition. They were able to answer almost all the major questions in the first round and capitalized on the inability of Nkonya SHS and Yendi SHS to provide the right responses to their questions.

They maintained their composure as the contest progressed with the two losing schools throwing in the towel at an early stage of the competition.

They will be joined by Edinaman SHS in the one-eighth stage of the 2018 National Science & Maths Quiz who beat E.P.C Mawuko Girls’ SHS and Kinbu SHTS in a separate contest earlier in the day.
