Francisca Lamini of the Keta Senior High Technical School (SHTS) has become the talk of Ghana since the end of the 2021 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ).
Her exceptional display of academic grit during the NSMQ competition has made netizens believe that she’ll go into our history books as one of the best brains among second-cycle schools in the country.
As a result, there were no complaints when she was named as the overall outstanding female participant at the end of the competition.
That was not her only achievement there. She was the only female contestant to reach the finals in the last eight years of the contest. This was after her team defeated arguably, Ghana’s best all-girls school, Wesley Girls High School, Cape Coast at the semi-final stage.
But what many do not know is that Francisca, before competing in the NSMQ, had already been excelling academically.
She sat for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private candidates, commonly known as NOV-DEC and scored 8As in the subjects.
What makes this even more impressive is the fact that she chalked this enviable success when she sat for the exams in her second year, before completing the full three-year program at her SHS. This is just incredible.
