These schools entered into a category labeled as “Qualified Schools”.

Out of the Northern Sector, they are: Kumasi Girls SHS, Prempeh College, St. Hubert Seminary and SHS, Kumasi Academy, Tamale Girls SHS, St. Louis SHS, and Ghana SHS.

At the end of the Southern sector exams, Okuapeman SHS topped all while Kumasi Girls SHS were tops in the Northern zone.

Ranked Schools

In Sharks Quiz parlance, Ranked Schools are those that are able to make it out of the First Round qualifiers, but fall short of progressing beyond the Round of 16.

Ranked Schools in Senior Sharks 6 are Wesley Girls High School, Cape Coast, Tamale Islamic Science SHS, DPS International, Aburi Girls SHS, KNUST SHS, Mfantsipim School, Holy Child School and Sonrise Christian School.
