CATS College Cambridge students are 'bang on' when running the British Economy !

Sat 31 May 2014 < Back to listing

CATS College Cambridge students have been involved in a number of challenges and competitions from Running the Economy at The University of Cambridge to a prestigious History Prize, and virtually trading at The London Stock Exchange.

CATS College Cambridge students are busy developing links with the global business and financial community.

Six students entered a prestigious History Prize Competition.  Dr David Smith from Selwyn College, University of Cambridge offered guidance and expanded on the qualities necessary to impress this year's judges.  Last year one of our students received a Good Commendation for the quality of her essay.  We wish this year's student entries every success in the competition.

Four A Level/ Pre-University Economics students participated in the "Running the British Economy" event at the University of Cambridge, deciding on various policy instruments to steer the British Economy from interest rates to tax levels.  A CATS College Cambridge team won this competition two years ago.

Seven further students from this year group participated in the Target 2.0 Interest Rate Challenge organised jointly by The Times Newspapers and The Royal Bank of England.  Students presented an appropriate monetary policy that The Bank of England might take in the current economic situation in the UK.  CATS College Cambridge students were commended for their 'bang-on' conclusions.

Marshall Society together with the University of Cambridge organised a Development Economics Conference, where eight of our Year 2 A Level students had the opportunity to attend.  Distinguished speakers included Professors from the University of Cambridge as well as Ambassadors to the UK from both India and China.

Returning to competitions, twelve of our AS Economics students took part in The Student Investor Challenge organised by The Institute of Financial Services.  Students traded virtually on The London Stock Exchange during the challenge.

Now that exams are over, some of the AS Economics students will be writing and submitting essays for submission to The Royal Economic Society Essay Competition, we wish them well with their entries this year.
