Churchill College, of the University of Cambridge, are continually looking for new ways to encourage applications from the brightest students and to make clear to them the opportunities available at Cambridge. To help prospective applicants understand the ways they teach Economics, they have established the Winston Churchill Sixth Form Economics Prize. To win the prize, applicants must predict, to four decimal places, what the daily spot nominal Euro-Sterling exchange rate will be on 1 June 2019. There is also a requirement to justify the predictions with a commentary of no more than 400 words, focusing both on economic analysis and interpreting political decisions. The winning entries will be those that predict the spot rate with the greatest accuracy and provide the best-argued explanation of their prediction.
Adam Maclean and Zac Ward were selected to represent Bexhill 6th Form College in this prestigious competition. Their diligent and enthusiastic approach to studying towards their A Level in Economics and their recent impressive performance in the Institute for Chartered Accountants national BASE competition allowed them to stand out from their peers. They are both hoping to win the cash prize and a two-day overnight visit to Churchill College.
