  2. Hello,
    My name is Waqar and i just discovered your blog. And honestly i am quiet impressed with every thing that has been posted in the blog.

    On monday i have to appear in OBS exam, i'd really like to know if the topics posted above were useful in clearing the exam in good marks?

  3. Hello Waqar,
    This is not the recipe to get a distinction at all! This is more like a quick fix solution which means that if you cant do any thing and do these topics, you can pass easily. These are high-yield topics based on past papers and some of the most common problems you see in OB-GYN in Pakistan. So these are bound to be in any test/exam.
    Good luck for your exam!

  4. Thanks bilal, i had the exam yesterday and i think this post covered every single topic that was in there. Though i may have not aced the exam, but then again, what can you expect from some one who spent only two days for the preparation?
    It was really helpful anyway.

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)
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, …
