National Economics Olympiad Structure
Given the rising popularity of Economics as a subject, the National Economics Olympiad attempts to tap the unutilized potential of young minds in this field and discover the economist in them at the high school level. To a great extent, economics is about practicality, and so is NEO. The Economics Society of SRCC values a philosophical approach that helps students come out of the bookish Economics and experience Economics in reality.
NEO is conducted as a questioning competition aiming to stimulate the economists within the participants. Most importantly, it encourages participants to enhance rationality and creativity. The economics Olympiad conducted by SRCC has different sections that will have additional weightage in rounds one and two for obvious reasons.
The Olympiad is divided into four sections, namely:
- MCQ based on general economic concepts
- Logical reasoning
- Case study analysis
- Data interpretation
