Your Weekly Dose Of Kellogs

Kellogs Weekly's running a little behind schedule this week. We won't offer any excuses and justifications dear reader. Just our sincerest, most heart-felt apology. And a faint hope that our absence was deeply, sorely and painfully missed!
Kemcolians who've been keeping an eye-out for the notices adorning the college walls would probably know that the KELS English Interclass Mastermind Quiz is just around the corner. So keeping with the times, this week we'd be bringing forth for you from our Kellogs archives, an interesting account of the intercollegiate mastermind quiz that was held last year. It was a terrific event and we all had such great fun! Read all about it here and relive the beautiful moments once again.
And since no event at KE is ever complete without a bucketful of photographs being taken, distributed and inspected inch by inch, here's our own little photo gallery with the KELS event covered in great detail on film. Look at their proud faces dear reader. And the gleam in their eyes. Team work(and hard work) really does show, doesn't it?
We'd part today on a somewhat sombre note. There'd hardly be a Pakistani who wasn't shaken by Moin Akhtar's death a few days back. I've been watching video clippings of some of his most famous performances on Youtube these past days and the more I watch, the more I'm bereft of any words that I could conjure out of my pen, which could serve as a fitting tribute, some lines of carefully phrased eulogy that could convey in form just how big an artist he was. And I think it's only fitting that I can come up with absolutely nothing except a hope and a prayer that he finds peace in his new resting place and that the legacy of honest expression, enviable wit and pithy humour that he's left behind is passed on to coming generations, intact and unblemished. Here's to a man who knew the art of capturing the darkest bits of grief and enfolding them in sugary, bite-size wrappings of golden humour and clever wit and refused to kneel before bitterness and resignation. May God bless him!

1st Year IMPORTANT TOPICS (Anatomy)

By Farkhanda QaiserOkay finally here it is. The all-important guide for the 1st year students. 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)

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, …
