I know I know I am a bit old for a freshman now but hey I just couldn't gather the courage to say bub-ye to my chronicles , oh someone get me a tissue please ! …....
Duh! To blow my nose of course, it’s freezing cold!

They say all the good things come to an end, i can’t be sure about the ‘good’ part but well it’s got to end, our 1st year at KE as well as the chronicles! It wasn't anything less than a roller coaster ride! Though the last few months were particularly bumpy...

The most awaited and equally hated part of the year, the Prof Season is what i am talking about. The impossible nerds wait rather impatiently for this moment so that their true talent is recognized and the rest of us of course hate it like anything! It’s the time when you realize:
  • Who ‘the’ theta of the group is
  • Who is your best bud
  • What good did attending all the lectures and jotting them all down do to you
  • How many types of liars are there in the class
  • Enjoying the non-prof season to the fullest is a very good idea
  • That the Rs can do a better job too
  • What manic depressive syndrome actually is
  • Who should you message and expect a reply from
  • You are not meant for this field
  • What your new-found hobbies and dreams are
  • How much your family loves you
  • No more celebrating eid for another 5 years
  • Fb can be useful too specially during the vivas
  • What are suicidal tendencies!
When you find that place could look scary too.....

History repeated itself once again when we were bombarded with the news of send-ups being conducted within 3 weeks and we just couldn't stop saying ‘WHY it’s always US??’ and then the ‘First Professional Part 1 Annual Examination’ (it literally feels as great as it sounds) were to commence less than a month after send-ups but due to dengue holidays and efforts of the Rs we got it delayed twice!
A theta's reaction to the delay
A normal reaction !

Some class things that got controversial this year include the class function
No comments.

Then there was this laptop fuss! That too during the prof. The list had names of all the years from 1st to final year but wait a minute! Where is old 1st year? ‘Well your case is under consideration ‘, said some clerk in some office...ugghh......WHY US AGAIN!? What else we could have done but protest (following the tradition) and succeeded in getting registered for an offer we, being the crème de la crème, deserve above all!

Then Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn who boldly claimed to ‘BOL-say it all’ in the class diary, hid their very own identities ‘kiya yeh khula tazaad nahi?!’

At last, only a day after the best function ever (welcome party to first year) the result was expected. ‘Ijtimai’ prayers were said, tears were shed. Every person heading to Patiala carrying a file was suspected to be the ‘result guy’ and then a silence before a storm of shrieks echoing round the campus! 

One word for the juniors before signing off , since we are officially seniors now, though many of you look and are elder than us but: 
Seniors <------R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

1 down , 4 to go ! 
Farewell First Year and the Chronicles !

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, …
