A New Home or Just a Punishment:

(lubaba mukhtar, "not yet 2nd year")

For the 1st year hosteller girls out there, its time to decide whether your hostel is going to become an abode of happiness for you or just a two to three week punishment from which you crave to run away.
By God’s grace and I’m very happy to acknowledge that you are being kept in a separate hostel quite away from KEMU old girls hostel and its regular boarders (your seniors, rats, cats and some other wild life). Although you are at a disadvantage in many ways but you do have one benefit (no ragging!!) Don’t gloat too much, I’ve heard some of my own friends and some seniors bragging that soon enough (as soon as they can make full recovery from the proff fever), they’re coming your way packed in rickshaws and fully loaded with new and old ideas to rag you. And as a dear friend of mine said that only if the seniors come to rag you will you be able to come to Old Girls’ hostel to study the famous clavicle (obviously the toughest, hardest and most complex bone to study). It’s a give and take world, you can’t study clavicle without some compromise first.
                                                    your beloved seniors...

and you...

Anyways, I didn’t start writing to scare you more than you already are, I’m just writing to give you some hostel survival tips that I learned the hard way.

Hear Ye Froshies!

By~ Romesa Qaiser Khan, ex-first year.

(Will-be grammar nazis, I do know how to spell freshies but one beloved sir christened us froshies and now we pass the honour to you.)
 So. The new sacrificial lambs are here at last. You have studied and worked hard and given up all of life's joys to win the rat race that is MCAT. Congratulations! (You could've done better though, our-merit-art-higher-than-thous, juzsayin') They tell you this is the big IT. THE milestone you've been waiting to reach. Life will be a piece of cake from now on. In fact, I overheard one of you saying "MCAT ke waqt jo feeling thi man. Ab to life asaan hogi."

which made me mentally go...

Not that I intend to be a killjoy. But we were where you are not so long ago and we feel like someone should've forewarned us so we're doing the same for you. Here's a leeetle view of what's going to happen (which they never show you in all those college movies):

1. The enthusiasm.

    At the start of the year in every lecture like....

but in a few months....
You know what I'd rather listen to? Me being shot in the face photo tumblr_m5mxnsq9Ou1qze3m3.gif

and you'll discover amazing new survival skills too.


2. The swag feels.

You'll wear your overall like Batman's cape. You tell every auntie/uncle/child/pet that crosses your path that you're a doctor, woh bhi KEMCOLIAN doctor. The cream of the cream of the cream.

 But when you face the first few exams...

3. Them brainy feels.

When you sit in with all 300 of your fellow students based on your previous board-topping history you'll feel something like this:

but then you meet THE NERDS. The ones who never sleep. The ones who have annihilated the books. The Originals. They'll know things you can't imagine. They'll put up nerd posts and explanations for chapters and past papers on facebook groups. They'll ace tests. They'll wow professors. And they'll make you go:

The 11th Doctor

- Jawad Haider
1st Year, MBBS

The result was announced and everywhere all sorts of people came to congratulate me in their own ways.


Bhai treat kab de rahay ho?!

Beta ENT me jana. Pehla mareez aap ka me hu ga…

Mehnat to kartay nai thay, K.E me kesay aa gaye? Bacha genius ha…

30th October was the Day of Judgment – kind of an apocalypse we had all been preparing for almost 4 years. I just remember that I woke up at 8 in the morning and we had to go to my uncle’s place. As was my routine, I grabbed my mobile to check the unread messages. On the top of the list was my cousin’s message informing me that UHS merit list had been announced.

Past Papers 3rd Professional 2012


The Road To KEMU

- Ayesha Mushtaq

Class of 2014-2019

Nearly every pre-medical student in Punjab dreams of studying in King Edward Medical University one day. But making it to this institution, the ‘den of kings and queens’, is of course no mean feat, for it is the primary choice of all applicants and the bar is raised higher and higher each year.

Since my childhood, I knew that I had to be a doctor in the future, for it was a direction mapped out by my mother; but I had never really thought about which place I wanted to go to for professional studies. Until F.Sc., that is. And when I gave the subject a thought or two, I just set my eyes on Army Medical College, Rawalpindi. I was no fan of KEMU back then, and the idea of ‘the nation’s premier medical school’ didn’t seem fascinating at all. Coming from a strongly military background, army is where my heart lies. Hence, AM College was a natural choice.

USMLE STEP 1 Experience (268) by Dr. Ansab Abbas Haider

I began preparing for my step 1 after I got my step 2 result. I had about 3 to 4 months for the prep. I knew I could not spare time to go through all of Kaplan books and then do First Aid and UWorld all in the given time frame, so I jumped straight to First Aid. I had taken step 2 before so I was confident I could use First Aid right away.
