Francisca Lamini, the high school student from the Keta Senior High Technical School (SHTS) who became the toast of the town after the National Science and Maths Quiz, has scored 8As in the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
She scored As in all her four core subjects [English, Mathematics, Integrated Science, Social Studies] and four elective courses [Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Elective Mathematics].
This is not the first time she is exhibiting her exceptional display of academic grit.
She sat for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private candidates, commonly known as NOV-DEC in her second year at Keta SHTS, and also scored 8As.
During the NSMQ competition, which is seen as the gathering of the best brains among second-cycle schools in the country, she performed exceptionally.
There were no complaints, therefore, when she was named as the overall outstanding female participant at the end of the 2021 edition of the NSMQ.
Now, it is pretty obvious that her outstanding performance at the 2021 WASSCE will enable her to pursue her ‘childhood passion’ of becoming a Medical Doctor.
Francisca is currently in Dubai, enjoying the fruits of her exploits.
Despite emerging third in the NSMQ, Francisca and her team have received praise and some financial rewards for rubbing shoulders with A-ranked schools and holding their own.
