At the end of the second round, Adisadel College led with 25 points, St Peters SHS and WASS tied with 22 points.

The Problem of the Day question took a different form as contestants were asked to describe the process of solving a stated equation.


At the end of the round, Adisadel College maintained their lead with 29 points while St Peters SHS and WASS had 26 and 25 points respectively.

The auditorium of the National Theatre is fully packed to the rafters with thousands waiting outside as the three schools battle for gold.
