Another exam period has ended. Hope it all went well for you. People like statistics, so I’m bringing ’em.
On the graph you can see how the daily visitor and visit count has been from November 1st until today. It’s fun to see the graph gradually increase during the semester as the exam period closes in. It peaks in the days before week 1 and during it, as people are frantically studying pharma, patho and biochem 1. Good to see that many people took the christmas time off. You can also see that there are still some visits when POTE has vacation, which is probably mostly students from other places in the world.
As most of the subjects I’ve written for are subjects people usually take in the first weeks, I think it’s natural that we see the highest numbers of visitors in the first weeks.
The peak number of daily visits was 5659 the 9th of December. The peak number of daily visitors was 809 the 11th of January, which I can’t really understand. It was a Saturday. During the exam period there were a total of 153 002 page visits. During the semester there were 153 806 page visits, but that’s including those robot peaks, so in reality the number should be around 144 000.
During the exam period these were the top visited pages. The visit numbers are for this exam period. Scrolling further down the list shows that the most popular pages are the histo slides and macropreps for patho 1.
These were the top visited pages during the semester. I think this shows that people tend to study more generally across subjects during the semester, but during the exam period they study topics more specifically. Also that nobody studies macropreps and slides during the semester.
There are now a total of 788 comments on the website, 353 of which are mine. 788-353 = 435 comments are made by readers. I don’t have exact numbers, but the vast majority of comments arise during the exam period. I think I got 2 – 3 comments daily on average during this exam period.
Most comments point out mistakes in the notes, some ask for clarification, some ask for advice, but a few commenters are just here to flex. Here are some interesting comments.
I’ve run out of statistics, and if I were to share every interesting comment this post would go on forever.
