NSMQ prodigy Francisca Lamini shines at Harvard College

Scored straight As with 4.0 Cumulative GPA 

Francisca Lamini, the National Science and Maths Quiz sensation from Keta Senior High who took the nation by storm with her excellent academic prowess is proving at Harvard College in USA that her success in Ghana was no fluke.

In the fall of 2022, she scored straight As in all the subjects she took.

She obtained a cumulative Grade Point Average (GAP) of 4.0.

Following her exploits in the NSMQ, she was granted a full scholarship to complete an undergraduate programme in Harvard College.

After successful completion, she would gain admission into Harvard Medical school, or, any other Ivy league Medical school of her choice.

The news excited many Ghanaians for the young girl who stole their attention at the 2021 NSMQ competition.

Her school, KETASCO, made history when they qualified for the finals of the NSMQ. The school represented by Francisca, Bright Senyo Gadzo and James Lutterodt battled against six times champions Presbyterian Boys Secondary School (PRESEC) and Prempeh College.

Though her school did not win the ultimate prize, she received praises for being the only female in the grand finale of the popular quiz show in the last eight years.

During her exploits on the programme, it came to light that the prodigy from the Keta Senior High Technical School had already scored straight As in the private Nov/Dec WAEC examinations.

This was back in SHS 2 when she sat for the test. She, however, repeated the feat in the just-ended West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) when the results were released on December 8.

It also emerged that she was at the top of her class throughout her primary to JHS journey.

Francisca Lamini was also named the Most Outstanding Student at the 2021 NSMQ where Prempeh College emerged victors.
