Allotment in King Edward GIRLS HOSTEL is more like an election season!

hype…hoopla…excitement….stochasticity…politics…fun….IT’S ABOUT EVERYTHING!
dedicated to the VICTIMS OF ALLOTMENT :P

SCENE 1(DISPLAY OF THE ROOMS AND MERIT LIST-afra tafri, dhakkam peel):

When the lists are finally displayed!!!
the FOREVER ALONE NOTICE BOARD gets to know its worth!
There are LONG and LONG queues of girls in front of it!
a real rush... agitated girls pushing others to get to the lists!
 (gals run towards the notice board as if PROF RESULT is displayed :D :P)

and if you somehow grab a copy of that list, you suddenly turn into a celebrity! You’ll be contacted by people who normally won’t even dare say hi :P

SCENE 2(POLITICS-texiaann):

After that everybody plunges into the MERIT HUNT!!
rule: merits will strictly be distributed on the FIRST COME FIRST GET basis :P
and the time, normal people get to think of talking to someone about merit, they’re left with just their own merits :P
in KE, to get access to a merit, u ought to be

SCENE 3(DITCHING-dost dost na rahaaa)

And even if u get to pair up with some high merit girl, there are high chances that on the very day of allotment she’d tell you that she has changed her group and u should better contact someone else :/ oopsss!
and you are like

(SCENE 4: SHIFTING-room room na raha)

After the allotment is somehow done and you have managed to somehow snaffle a room, the people allotted with your old room would come like the members of the HOUSES REVENUE DEPARTMENT and ask you to vacate the room asap! And you’ll feel like you’ve been dwelling in their homes for all that while! (as if you’ve trespassed on someone’s territory and they’ll be kicking your ass real hard :P)
and you’ll be seeking refuge under the blue sky!! :P


Now this is something really really UNEXPECTED!
post allotment fights are nothing new but this year it happened in a very innovative manner with KEROSENE and GADGET FIGHTS!!!! :P and sufferers had no idea that they’d be victims of such an innovative revenge :D or they were not taking it seriously :P
 (well this was a bit too innovative :P)
Thinking of that REVENGE thing, I think I should get off my feet and start running
Because by writing this article, I might have annoyed many CULPRITS!! :/ :P
Seriously, no OFFENCES meant!
GOD save me!!!!!

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 …

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…

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.
