June 12th, 2009 | No Comments | Posted in Uncategorized

We at FireUp are glad to announce that we are conducting Vedic Mathematics Seminar on 20th June, 21st June and 22nd June 2009.

In the month of February and March, 2009 we successfully conducted seminars on Vedic Mathematics in Pretoria High School, Hare school and Sakhawat Memorial Higher Secondary Girls’ School.

What is Vedic Mathematics?

Vedic mathematics – a gift given to this world by the ancient sages of India. “Vedic Mathematics” refers to a technique of calculation based on a set of 16 Sutras or algorithms derived from these sutras. The evasive problems or the time consuming huge sums can often be solved quickly and without any mistakes by using the Vedic method.

How it will help you?

Vedic Mathematics helps you to solve mathematical problems about 15 times faster. It will not only help you to score high grades in your school examinations and will also be effective for competitive examinations as well. It can even help the mathematics teacher to make the student learn this gift (sutras in vedas) from Indian Sages. It is proven that any mathematical problem can be solved mentally with these sutras.

Online CAT 2009 – Decoded

June 12th, 2009 | 1 Comment | Posted in Uncategorized

The nationwide admission examination for management institutes and the most coveted IIMs, Common Admission Test (CAT) is undergoing a major change in its format. The Indian Institute of Management (IIMs) have decided to change their 33 year old saga of pen – paper examination format with a computer based examination. This has resulted in a kind of phobia in the mind of the aspirants. It is expected that about 3 lakh candidates will appear for CAT 2009. The change in the format has left the candidates wondering what CAT 2009 will be like.

The management experts have a different say. They believe that the aspirants should stop worrying and start studying. It has been confirmed by IIM Calcutta director, Mr. Sekhar Chaudhuri that this time in CAT 2009 the candidates will have to reach their respective CAT center and take the test by looking at the questions on a computer screen and then key the answers into the terminal. Sources also reveal that the test will not be computer adaptive. In a computer adaptive test the computer adapts to the examinee’s performance and changes difficulty level of the next question. In CAT 2009 the candidate can look into the entire question paper on the computer screen and then begin answering any question they like. The examinees will not have to be connected to the internet for appearing the test.

There are many hidden advantages of this format. The candidates can select a day from the ten day frame. This has an added advantage in the suburbs where the CAT was difficult to conduct earlier. The foremost advantage of using this format is to reduce the human intervention in the examination. This would minimize errors and would make the system fast and accurate. It would reduce the participation of faculties of IIMs into the mechanical process of paper checking which facilitates their involvement in research work.

The disadvantage lies in the fact that people who are unfamiliar to computer terminal may find the test difficult.

The aspirants are advised to get used to computer interface. Reading a lot on computer terminal will help. Taking computer based examination provided by coaching centers like www.fireup.co.in, which provides online facilities, will help. Students must note down that with the change in technologies occurring worldwide there will changes in the examination also but the fundamentals always remain the same. So before anything get your basics reviewed and then take as many online tests as possible.
