NEO’s preliminary round will comprise of four sections namely economic concepts, logical reasoning, case studies and data interpretation. Each of these four sections will cover 10 questions. For every correct answer, one mark will be awarded. Students must note that there is no negative marking in this round. However, the final round is sort of a surprise round. Students will receive the details about it only at the time of the test.
The prime motive of NEO is to provide the students with a platform where they can test their knowledge using practical units. NEO’s syllabus and overall design have been structured in such a way so that it can help students while they prepare for examinations. For some guidance, students will also receive a sample questions booklet that will comprise of the previous NEO papers along with more than 150 new questions. Post the Olympiad, the students will receive a performance analysis report that will help them to evaluate themselves.
SRCC’s Economics Society is also offering partial and complete financial aid to give better opportunities to students belonging to the underprivileged sections of society. The NEO will also help the students to expand their understanding of economics in terms of using its concepts in real-world applications. In 2020, the Olympiad received more than 6000 participants from 1200 schools and 400 cities. This participation was from 10 countries.
