The National Economics Olympiad is an initiative to break the monotony of an unquestioning curricular regime among students of Classes 11th & 12th and harness the true potential of the discipline of Economics.
Economics is a vast subject whose beauty lies as much in theory as in its applicability. Feel the same and think that school exams are too theoretical? The fourth edition of the biggest Economics Olympiad for school students is back to allow kids to look beyond their curriculum and truly "Discover The Economist" in themselves.
Gear up for an opportunity of a lifetime as you navigate through a well-curated blend of application of economic concepts, logical reasoning, case studies and data interpretation to come out the victor against thousands of students across the world!
The registration fee is ₹200, but to encourage greater participation, students will be allowed to register for ₹180 till 25th September 2021, as part of an early-bird discount. The deadline for registration and payment is 15th October 2021.
