The National Science and Maths Quiz is an annual science and mathematics based national level quiz competition for senior high schools in Ghana. It has been produced by Primetime Limited, an advertising and PR Agency, with a huge interest in education, since 1993.

The objective of the National Science & Maths Quiz has been to promote the study of the sciences and mathematics, help students develop quick thinking and a probing and scientific mind about the things around them, while fostering healthy academic rivalry among senior high schools.

The quiz, popularly referred to as “brilla” by many who have gone through the secondary school system is by far one of the few academic events that bring all of Ghana’s secondary schools together. The schools and students look forward to it. The National Science and Maths Quiz is the longest running educational programme on a Ghanaian television. It is broadcast on GTV every Saturday at 11am and Wednesdays at 4pm.

Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School, Legon (PRESEC) is the most successful school in the quiz so far. They are 5 time winners who have been to the finals 7 times, equaled only by Opoku Ware School which has not chalked that much success in the finals. Achimota School is the only unisex school to have won the competition so far. No female only school has ever won the competition. Only 11 schools out of the hundreds of Senior High Schools in Ghana have won the competition since its inception.

From 2012, the GES, through the Conference of Heads of Assisted Schools, CHASS, took up the sponsorship of the programme. Thus, the competition was opened up to many more schools to participate. In 2013, 66 out of the 81 invited schools participated. In 2014, the number of schools was increased to 135 to give the programme a truly national character. From 2014, 108 schools are selected from regional competitions to join 27 seeded schools (quarter-finalists from the previous year’s competition) at the National Championships.
