The widely admired moderator of the National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ), Dr. Elsie Effah Kaufmann says she received death threats from anonymous people due to the quiz contest.
Speaking on live radio on Kessben 93.3 Fm, the quiz mistress says that some unscrupulous people who feel their school has been cheated end up texting or emailing her for what they think is biased.
However, she stressed that there are rules governing the quiz which even the quiz mistress cannot cross which many of them fail to understand. Many of them she says make these assertions even before the final scores are revealed.
With a touch of laughter, she commented that perhaps one day a machine will be quiz mistress and all their “supposed” biases will be resolved.
