The preliminary round will have four sections — economic concepts, logical reasoning, case studies, and data interpretation with 10 questions each. Each question accounts for one mark and there will be no negative marking in this round. The final round is a surprise round, details of which will be shared only at the time of the test.
To encourage students from underprivileged sections of the society, SRCC is offering a 100 per cent financial aid mechanism to “ensure better opportunities for students, irrespective of their constraints”. Through the olympiad, SRCC claims, students will get a chance to test their acumen and broaden their understanding of economics in terms of its application in the real world.
In the Olympiad held last year, SRCC had received over 6000+ participants from across 1200 schools and 400 cities, across 10 countries.
