KemLife Tips: Managing Multiple Societies at one time:

By
Farkhanda Qaiser


Remember the early days of 1st year when all the kemcolian societies came to your class to introduce themselves...? You felt like joining each and every one of them after watching those musical presentations about their achievements and events...but something or the other always stopped you...an upcoming substage or stage, the fear of failing in physio or of missing classes after you joined those societies...
That's what the majority of kemcolian nerds always feel in 1st year but things change considerably with every passing year...You see those same people making CVs, applying for posts and rejoicing on getting those posts...then a new life starts for them: the kemcolian society life...Making announcements in class, doing publicity by pasting charts on zero point, being organisers in mushaira, sitting on the registration desk in declamation contest, shooting pictures for KAPS during sports week, hosting the KELS events, collecting money for SPWS bake sale and a myriad of such activites become part of your daily life...
and you realise you had been missing out on a very important aspect of life in KE...
you may be drop dead tired every day...
you may feel like you've perhaps overdone with joining all those societies...
but at the end of the day...you're a more complete person, a more polished kemcolian...
ALTAPETE...!
afterall medical life is not all about anatomy, physiology and biochemistry...(for the 1st 2 years atleast)
P.S. this last line doesnt apply for the PROF season cuz then it IS all about these dreary subjects...

I’ve compiled all the prof and sendup questions of last year as well as the remnants of class tests that I had.But before you go on to read them, keep in mind the following very tested tidbits:For profs, NEVER leave any topic untouched and unread. Go through all topics so that in viva, you have atleast some idea about what the examiner is asking.NEVER lose your sendup question paper because there are high chances that some of the questions will be repeated in profs as you can see in the following example of anatomy question paper and same goes for the MCQs. Most of them are repeated. So here’s what we had done, in our facebook class group, we had made a discussion topic, and everyone told the MCQs of sendups and discussed them. Well, you may think us nerds or whatever but trust me that discussion proved very fruitful for all those who participated in it.I think enough has bin said about orga…

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)
Salam everyone, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. I am going to write a detailed composition regarding preparation for USMLE Step 1. I am a final year student at King Edward Medical University and I took my exam on June 10th. Final year is the year before internship/ house job in Pakistan. I just got my scores: 99/266



Let me introduce some myths surrounding USMLE Step 1 which are especially prevalent within Pakistan; I am not too sure about India because I heard their students typically appear in their final years.


 Myth number 1:Do not appear for USMLE Step 1 within your graduation

 Verdict: Baseless, illogical reasoning

Explanation: This is so prevalent in Pakistan it’s almost pathetic. One of the biggest concerns surrounding our students is that Step 1 is a huge risk to be taken before graduation. Let me put it in another way: Step1 would always remain a risk whenever it is taken, …
