Some of the 56, 000 students that wrote the qualifying examination for the 2019 Cowbellpedia Secondary School Mathematics TV Quiz Show, sponsored by Cowbell, across designated centres nationwide penultimate week have vowed to become the next champion.

As secondary school students from both public and private schools across the country jostled to cross the first stage of the competition, this year’s figure represents a 27.2 per cent increase over the 44,000 participants recorded in 2018.

Out of these numbers, the best 108 will proceed to the next stage of the competition, which is the TV Quiz Show proper.


Emmanuel Adeoti, a Senior Secondary School II student of Iponri Grammar School, Lagos, expressed optimism to advance to the TV Quiz Show proper, regardless of the hurdles ahead of him saying ‘’The road to the Quiz Show may be quite difficult, but I’m sure I will be among the successful participants”.

“I prepared very well for this exam and I look forward to being at the TV Quiz Show,” said Musiliu Adio of Community Junior Grammar School also in Lagos.


The two-hour-long hitch-free examination that took place at various centres in the country was supervised by the Lagos State Ministry of Education and the National Examination Council (NECO).

In his assessment of the candidate’s conduct at a centre, Charles Aneke, a NECO official, said although it was quite an arduous task getting the candidates to follow instructions, the exercise was a success.

Similarly, Benedict Adegoke, an official of Lagos State Ministry of Education, also expressed satisfaction with the general conduct of the candidates, saying “They were all seated before the exam began. It wasn’t a case of having to run after one student or the other”.

Teachers present at the centres lauded organisers of the competition for sustaining the annual Mathematics competition which, they said has continued to spur the desire for excellence in their students.

Recall the Managing Director of Promasidor Nigeria, Anders Einarson had earlier explained during the flag-off of the competition that the ultimate prize for this year’s edition is N2 million and an all-expense paid educational excursion outside the country. The first and second runners-up will go home with N1.5million and N1 million respectively.

While the teacher of the top prize winner will be awarded N500, 000, while those of the first and second runners-up will get N400, 000 and N300, 000 respectively.
