How To Cast Your Vote ?

Elections 2013 are just a few hours away. For all the newbies who are gonna vote this year here is the procedure that you need to follow :

> First of all you need to be a registered voter to cast your vote.

> Send your CNIC number to 8300 ASAP ( as the networks will be jammed tomorrow) to receive the following info:
-Block code
-Series number
-Polling station address
-National Assembly constituency number
Note/remember this info.

> Visit your concerned polling station between 8am - 5pm on 11th May, 2013.
If there is a long queue wait patiently for your turn.

> Show your original CNIC to the presiding officer who will check your name and photo in the voter's list, confirm it from the polling agents , get your thumb print against your name in the list and will mark your thumb with semi-permanent election ink.

> The assistant presiding officers will then issue ballot papers ; Green for the national assembly, white for the provincial assembly and the voting stamp. ( The officers must put a govt stamp and their signatures on the back of the ballet paper )

> Go to the voter screen alone and put the stamp on the party symbol of your favorite candidate. ( make sure you do it within the given space and that there is no overlapping)

> The ballot paper should be folded properly as shown :

This in done to ensure the secrecy of your vote and to avoid any ink prints on other signs (which may result in cancellation of your vote)

> Finally drop the green ballot paper in the ballet box with a green lid and white in the box with a white lid.

Precautions !
• Must take water, biscuits and sweets along, as you might get stranded in long queues. 
• Park your vehicle well away from the Polling Station.
• Identify escape routes and safe places in case of an emergency.
• Do NOT handover your CNIC to any stranger. 
• Do NOT carry items you don’t need (credit cards, debit cards, other valuable items).
• Do not indulge in any unnecessary arguments with political parties.
• Avoid entering Polling station with your spouse or all family members together. Try splitting in groups.
• Do NOT take your cellular phone as it is not allowed. Keep them at home as most likely cellular services will be jammed on Election Day
• Avoid all crowds and public gatherings to mitigate risk of exposure to incidental violence.

Remember !

Vote is your right ! Vote for the right !

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…

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, …
