Letterkenny student Ellie Graham has proudly placed third in the National Accounting Competition Ireland.
The Atlantic Technological University Donegal student was awarded a €300 prize from CPA Ireland and gamification application Quitch.
The National Accounting Competition Ireland was hosted on the Quitch application, a gamified, mobile e-learning app that changes the way learners engage with knowledge.
Participants included first to final year accounting students as well as Masters students. Each week a range of theory-based accounting questions were released to participants on Quitch. Participants could monitor their progress under their avatar name and see their score on a leader board along with the other participants. During the ten weeks of the competition 17 colleges across Ireland and Northern Ireland took part and the total amount of hours played was 12 days and 18 hours.
Grainne Oats, CEO of Quitch said, “I would like to congratulate Ellie, the other winners and everyone who has participated in this exciting competition. We were delighted to partner with CPA Ireland and provide students with a platform where they could use game-based techniques to answer theory-based accounting questions. There were brilliant results in the competition and we would like to congratulate everyone who took part.”
