A land mark on GATE exam day

        Yesterday (10th Feb'13) GATE exam was conducted. It's an all India exam conducted by IITs annually for entry to M.Tech courses. Some PSUs also consider the GATE scores for offering jobs. In GATE, there are a total of 65 questions carrying a total of 100 marks, out of which 10 questions carrying total of 15 marks are in General Aptitude (GA). The remaining 85% of the total marks is devoted to the Engineering syllabus. From last year (GATE-2012),
General Aptitude section has been introduced in the exam along with the traditional Engineering stuff. This section contains Quantitative,Verbal and Logical ability questions and contributes to 15% of the total score. (in fact, it's a remarkable portion given low scores in GATE exam). More or less, this section is in the lines of MBA entrance exams like CAT,XAT, etc.

            Yesterday was a good day for this blog http://mathbyvemuri.blogspot.in. My Math blog was introduced in Oct'2011 and so far the journey is exciting. Initially the page hits per day were 10-30 and gradually it is increased to 40-60 and for the last 3-4 months the pace has been maintained at 90-120 page hits/ day. Yesterday the total page hits were '934', highest figure in my blogging experience thanks to GATE aspirants.

            The GATE-2013 exam was conducted in two slots (morning and evening). I started posting the detailed solutions for the aptitude section of the GATE-2013 by around 6.30 PM. Within 2 hours of my posting, there were around 250 hits and the count went on with that pace.

            This type of moments are very special to me and are big stepping stones in building up and pushing ahead my self with mathbyvemuri...
