College in three years and GRE!

Finishing twelfth grade wasn’t easy. So was striving to become an individual like unique integers. Enrolling for an undergraduate degree in a reputed institution seemed necessary. Going through various entrance exams which were as complex as solving n-th root of eight digit numbers seemed irrational sometimes, yet mandatory. With the high competition clouding up, some lost the race by a fraction. After putting up a struggle, we all settled down with a particular stream and everything fell into place. Life paced on with certainty like how anyone would answer to the question, what is (a+b)2?. Well, ask them to prove it, nay!

So life was just like these simple linear equations. It progressed to being quadratic, but still submissive. Eventually, the percentage score became important and people started to reason out for benefits. There had to be a profit, no loss. As a class, the ratio or proportion had to be balanced with not much of a variance and the mean standard had to be commendable. In a mass group of mixed people there existed various inequalities and their compound interest had to be sought after and managed, to survive. This was the end of two years of engineering, which is four semesters of engineering mathematics.

After two years things started to turn limpid, like a boat in a stream. Organizing department symposiums with backbreaking work and completing a particular work in a fraction of time proved challenging. The decisions were made after various permutation and combinations from a pool of ideas contributed by the whole. Hence, the probability of the conditions going wrong was less. The event turned out to be tremendously fun and worthy.

Semester after semester, pushing through exams, managing politics, eating according to the mess routine, writing piles of assignments, presenting x and y’s papers, was like fighting with geometry again. Trying to prove it’s theorems, why their angles are supplementary and why a triangle is similar but not congruent. (Too much math, sorry :P). In the end, there is a satisfaction when LHS = RHS. Hence proved. Wow. The distance between year one of college and now isn’t much, but so many good memories were created to be carried along.


Maybe engineering is too much of math and calculations but there is always a solution, just so in life.


Writing a blogpost with maths. Yeah, worst things can happen. That was just me revising my GRE syllabus. Final year college is here, the pressure is back and the applications to various universities are open. Putting that brain back to work is so hard, but I think I’ll find a solution :p Afterall, maths is the only subject that has better conclusions than the others. #odetoGREquant
