Time Management! (A general analysis)

There is a God-forsaken quagmire at the rear of my place. You cannot negotiate with it as to assuming that you would walk through it and that too with a reluctantly sluggish tread, and still expect it not to gulp your whimsical entity in. Cruel, isn’t it? So is “time”.

Want to swallow the bitter fact that “When you fail to plan, you actually plan to fail”? Not that delicious, I know.
Embarking on with recalling our old school times- How many times did you ask your teacher “Mam, May I go to drink water?” or “May I go to washroom?” and end up without making a comprehensive joy round of the whole campus in the name of accomplishing the expected task (water/washroom)? :P And speaking of our day to day life even in university now, don’t most of us have Facebook notification alerts on our “cell-phones”? According to an analytical observation, people waste most of their time in seeing and replying to text messages that pop up every now and then; and you can verily judge how “important” they are or have become to us. Looks like you’re shaking your head in affirmative ;) Trivial, it might seem, but when drops making up a sea are themselves impure, there is no fun of wishing to cherish a clear, transparent, and uncontaminated ocean thereafter. So here we are with that ocean of life, dirtied by such trifling drops of error, which an adept would love to frame as “Mismanagement”.
Our priorities define us. But we have to design them as a perquisite for being under a good definition. Once, just once, go through the lives of great people like Jinnah, Iqbal, Liaqat Ali Khan, Sir Syed, and above all our own Holy Prophet (SAW) who happened to be the busiest of all with the tightest of schedules (I need not elaborate, we all know). Did those personalities ever crack down as to lick the dust at the hands of their reckless approach towards their mighty responsibilities? A big NO, it is. Now throw an honest glance on what we call “Our life”. Habitually agitated we are by mourning over our bad performance after every test/exam that hurls our way- no matter how much we ignore the resentment superficially, but deep inside, we all know we really could have done better if we had utilized our time productively (talking in a healthy sense). Killing time in the name of hanging out with friends unnecessarily, chattering on café tables and playing “Chal aj tu pesey de yar” for hours on daily basis with vivid knowing that something very important could have been done instead (at least Namaz to qazaa’ na ho jay!), gossiping around when your routine itself is pathetic enough to depress you or at least some useful knowledgeable society tidings would have pleased more- All this is coming out of personal experience. And believe me, it pains deep when you wish to reap something never sown.

Well! All it takes is concentration and will power to be a good time manager, the dire need of the hour.

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.


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 …

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…

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.
