A key element of the NSMQ is about claiming the bragging rights of champions.

Current and old students of the various schools will seize every opportunity to let you know they are the Cristiano Ronaldo of the contest while others brag to the Lionel Messi.

The contestants look forward to winning so they can beat their chests.

Currently, three schools namely St Peters Senior High School, PRESEC, Legon and St Augustine's College have qualified to the grand finale of the 2019 NSMQ.
