Tales of A Kemcolian Pixie. (Part 2)

Unsa Athar

Walks to remember...

The Silent trees.. the foggy buildings..
The moist grounds.. the fallen leaves.. <3

The first days at KEMU were not as good as I expected.. but with the passage of time I am falling in love with the university!(nai, wo wala love nai :-p ) The history of KE is reflected in its each and every wall. Every pigeon that does "guttar goo guttar goo" seems to be saying "Welcome doctor saab". Seeing the freshmen getting ragged in some really odd ways hurts but I pray that the seniors spare them soon so that they may also enjoy Kemlife. The last week in KE before the winter hols has been..amazing! The long long walks from cafe to patiala block, sitting under the sun in front of white building, going to Al-kareem and still not getting an ice-cream ;( , strolling in the Kitab Mela aimlessly, going to Union, coming back and then being dragged to Union again by friends for not bringing notes for them, trying to understand what physiology is actually about, dissecting a cadaver for the first time, feeling the presence of formalin in the food afterwards :-/ have been some the highlights of the previous week. The best thing about the week has been THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL BURN SYMPOSIUM. Yes, we were forced to be there because of the attendance drama, but seriously we loved being there listening to the words of wisdom by some remarkable people. I do not know about every one else but this symposium made me feel proud of being a future doctor (In Shaa Allah) and a kemcolian! Thank you Dr.Farid, Dr.Ashuk Gupta and Dr. Jawad for your influential words made me vow that I'll give all I have to create a difference and help the masses in pain. 
And Dear KEMU, yes you are not as perfect as I dreamed you to be, you have management issues, your people consider freshmen *Censored* , your teaching methodologies are at times incomprehensible, but I admit that wearing my overall, when I walk around in your blocks I feel proud to be a kemcolian. I know I'll have to burn the midnight oil to survive but still, I love being a doctor. I love being a kemcolian.

This what we do during the physiology lectures!
 fog enveloping our uni.!
M.A Jinnah Auditorium all set for the 32nd Annual Scientific Symposium
Putting up flyers all over the Uni. is more interesting than the anatomy dissections :-P

KEMU trees witness the freshmen being fooled.

This place is captured by every freshman's camera!(esp.girls)
Bone Bags Issued at last. And ghar waley say "koi chilla kaatney ka irada hai" :/

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)
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, …
