Top Economics Honours!

October 31, 2018 at 11:58 AM

Earlier in the year, selected Year 12 and Year 13 Economics students participated in the annual Auckland University Economics Competition. The competition consisted of forty questions, each testing our students’ understanding of microeconomic and macroeconomic concepts from a range of curriculum topics across a range of qualifications. 

Congratulations to the following students who received top honours and were invited to the Awards Ceremony held in October: 

Year 12 student Olivia Overfield was awarded High Distinction. She was the National winner, the top female student and was awarded a cash prize of $300 each from the University of Auckland and the New Zealand Treasury.  Olivia is the first female student to receive the $300 prize money in addition to the University of Auckland award. 

Year 13 student Andrew Chen was awarded High Distinction with $100 cash prize from the University of Auckland 

Year 13 student Callum Lee was awarded High Distinction 

Economics is offered at NCEA Levels 1-3 and in the International Baccalaureate Diploma as a Group 3 subject. Students taking the Year 10 Enterprise Studies course get their first taster for the subject in Term 1 where the Economics module covers the issues and decisions made around scarcity. The Auckland University Economics Competition will be held again as an enrichment opportunity in 2019.
