FIRST YEAR CHRONICLES
Episode: 2
‘ FUN UNDER THE SUN ! ’



FUN UNDER THE SUN!

The most awaited study-less week of the year, the sports week, was even more awaited by the 1st year as it was our 1st chance to get sun-burnt and burn the extra couple of ounces, but tragically this fun filled week was followed by our very 1st stage and The SUN tried its best to spoil the FUN. Roasted under the scorching heat were Participants, supporters and the KAPS photographers. I actually got a heat stroke and one of the relay race winners fainted – I do think she was on drugs though (steroids) ………………yet we enjoyed it a lot (don’t we always!) .

FUN FUN FUN FUN[1] FUNFAIR!


The bidding for the stall…..the choice of menu….. Stall décor….. the decision of theme….. the chart fever….. Everything was done mostly in DH ! Nothing works like mutilated corpses to charge up the appetite.
Throughout the event, hideous, disgusting, evil and yet appetizing and exciting posters were plastered all over the campus. (Many ofcourse bribed their siblings to make them)




KEMONSTERS created suspense! And the final day was literally FUN.Yummy Monsters’ delights,
samosas and cold coffee,

the terrifying Devil’s Den, tempting Chicken Aflame,

dangerous Monsters’ Domain…


Everything was a huge success! All the efforts finally paid off when KEMOSTERS INC got the Award for best stall décor ! (yoo-hoo !! ) and not just that but also 3rd prize for the best stall, the shield for which was mysteriously misplaced :/……


COLORFUL SPORTS !


Purple
The royal colour….
The colour of kings and queens….
That was the colour of 1st year on colours day !
(after all we were the new ‘royals’! Royal slaves that is.
And the theme was ‘majestic dragons ’.
No! Royal Majestic, enslaved dragons :/)

Colour day was made even more colourful by the 1st year. As usual the majestic class wouldn’t fit into the tent so the guys were banished from it.

To keep themselves busy and to add some colour to the event they actually brought a ‘Dhol wala’ which was hijacked by other classes but in the end they retrieved him back and what happened afterwards is quite obvious in this video:


Whenever someone from 1st year won in any event the dhamaal scene turned on and not to mention those nasty little ‘bugles’!
Our tent was just beside the commentary box and can still hear them:
‘1st year please go back into your tent…….’
‘1st year you are requested to clear the ground the race is about to start…….’
‘1st year kindly make less noise………’
‘Another medal for first year……..’
‘There isn’t a single event in which 1st year didn’t participate …’
‘ I think this year 1st year is going to get maximum positions….’
THE VICTORY STAND !


  • Umar Ijaz: bronz medal in 100m 400m & 3000m race, silver medal in 800m & 1500m race, silver medal in long jump. (the marathon runner lost 2/6 medals he got)
  • Aamer Sohail : silver medal in 3000m race
  • Umar Ijaz, Muhammad Yasir, Uzair Ikram, Munis Mahboob: Bronze medal in relay race
  • Laiba Khalid: silver medal in cycling
  • Sidrah Chishti: silver medal in 400 meters race and bronze madal in cycling
  • Hajira Iftikhar: gold medal in needle race & silver medal in sack race

  • Asnia Latif: gold medal in long jump
  • Samavia Munir: bronze medal in spoon race
  • Arfa Ahmad, Wardah Shabbir, Maryam Afzal, Samavia Munir: bronze medal in relay race girls
BANDITS DAY !

Our parents wanted us to become what? Great doctors but look what we have become... I bet we can earn more this way! (Hasn’t it always been about the money?)

A theme decided at the eleventh hour and opposed by most of the class initially was followed and liked by almost everyone in the end. The bandit queens looked pretty cool and guys …well ….they were pretty much the same. The ‘dacoits’ were the life of the party! ‘We came, we saw, we stole’!

The dacoits stopped the mehndi procession from moving ahead, while some had their own ‘rasm-e-henna’ performed, they even chased away the caravan of the great Mughal emperor

and diverted the attention of almost everyone from the cricket match that was being held in the ground! And then was the picture mania with the dacoits and their muddy horses…

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, …

Australian Medical Council AMC Part 1 Guide - Experience and Tips

AMC Part 1 by Dr. Asad Khizar Malik (Rank : 77/620) Australian Medical Council  Guide - Experience and Tips
Salam people, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. Hope everyone is doing great. I'll try to write as much as I can for the people who are due to various reasons more interested in joining Australian Hospitals for post-grad training as compared to the USMLE pathway.

I am a graduate of King Edward Medical University, class of 2004-2010. I did my 6 months house job after graduation in Mayo Hospital, and after that, i gave my AMC Part 1 in November, 2010 from Brisbane. With the grace of Allah, I passed that in first attempt.

So lets start with the discussion here, but PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS ENTIRELY MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND REASONING WHY I PREFERRED AUSTRALIA OVER USA FOR RESIDENCY.

First thing in mind that comes with post grad training in Pakistani doctors minds is: Which way to go after graduation? That is a very tough decision that is …

The tree that never had to fight For sun and sky and air and light, But stood out in the open rain And always got its share and rain, Never became a forest king, But lived and died a scrubby thing… Good timber does not grow with ease, The stronger wind, the stronger trees.
Getting yourself educated in the desi manner i.e. through the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education is one of the top most challenges of today’s society. Matriculation seems difficult at that time, but when you enter FSc, you realize that matric was the easiest job in the world.  Those obese books of intermediate part I and part II are the worst enemies one can ever have.  People say Medical is tougher, but I find one basic difference in both. When you enter a medical college, y…

USMLE Step 2 CK experience by Rizwan Khan (254)

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE MOST BENEFICENT AND MERCIFUL

     I recently got done with Step 2 CK exam & I want to elaborate my experience and the mistakes that I made during my prep so that any of my colleagues who are preparing for this exam might benefit from them. I wont go much in detail about how to prepare and where to prepare from since it is already highly debated on the forum and in the previous posts but would focus more on my personal experience and the bad choices which I made during the preparation phase.
