Achimota and Aquinas have all been NSMQ champions, with MoTown claiming two titles and Aquinas winning the 2013 NSMQ.

St. Thomas Aquinas - 28
Achimota School – 25
Nkwatia Presby SHS – 24

It was a real hard nut to crack for all three schools judging from their scores but it was finally decided in the final round of riddles where Achimota prevailed by answering 2 out of the 4 riddles correctly while the other 2 riddles were wrongly attempted by all three schools.
