In a fiercely contested battle, Opoku Ware School emerged victorious with a slender two-point margin, securing their spot in the final.
Prempeh College - 36
Pope John's - 36

This nail-biting semi-final showcased the exceptional knowledge and prowess of these top-tier institutions. Opoku Ware School's victory now sets the stage for a highly anticipated final clash, where they will join fellow two-time champions, Achimota School, in the ultimate showdown for the coveted NSMQ title.
