The sound of Silence

A short story by Hamdan Ali Khan, 1st Year MBBS

The old man sat on the beach, barefooted and alone. Silence reigned everywhere except the occasional thrashing of waves which disturbed the acoustic equilibrium. Night it was, the sky filled with a million lanterns, the birds dozing off quietly and the sea like an old pirate sang a silent shanty. Oh! He missed his youth, when he could swim to the Black Rock without drowning, when he could shout at the vast ocean, his resonant voice fading upon the edges of horizon. But all good things come to an end, the voice that once resonated; now a husky whisper. The man who was the fastest swimmer; now an ancient remainder of time and its echoes. The doctors said he had terminal cancer that he would die in a week. He didn’t fear death, he had no family, nothing to lose except maybe the sight when someone would break his 50 years old record. The silence of the calm sea nurtured in him a desire to swim to the Black Rock once again, one last time. He …

[AsK]emUnited Premed and FSc Guidance and Counselling Initiative: Question 3


Premed/FSc Guidance and Counselling Initiative.

Few Words about [AsK]emUnited Premed Counselling Initiative..

KemUnited started a premed section not very long ago. We got an overwhelming response to it, within a short period of time. The KemUnited team felt that there was widespread ignorance about preparation techniques. Most of the students relied on hearsay from their nearest friends and seniors, which may have guided or misguided them depending on the caliber of that person.
This is our first step to give one-on-one advice. We also plan on holding live online question & answer session with our fresh Kemcolians. This will be possible once we are done with our professional exams.

Aims & Objectives:

  • To provide reliable guidance from the people who have made it to KEMU. This is to break the status quo in which the premed candidates are clueless about who to talk to for their study problems
  • Our panel of experts are fresh students of King Edward Medical University. They must've done some thing right to get to the highest merit medical college. The advice they give may not be perfect. But they might be able to point you in the right direction in a much better way than any other source of advice out there.
  • We don't have anything to gain by giving advice. The need to state this arises because of the carnivorous academies or tutors who may have their vested interest in mind to mint more money out of poor premed candidates. Our goal is to take full benefit of the reach of our blog to help as many people as possible.

How to ask a question:

Some points to keep in mind before you ask a question. Please keep in mind that the panel who will answer your questions are also students with limited amount of time.

  • Click here to go to premed tab of our blog. Go through all the articles given over there. YOU MUST ALSO READ THE COMMENTS as a question like yours might already have been asked and answered.
  • The question selected to be answered here will be one which most of the people can relate to and benefit from.
  • Give a brief description of your problem. At the end of your email, briefly enumerate your questions once again so that nothing remains unanswered.
  • Be nice and formal in your email. Do not rite like dis. Avoid using ch@t/$mS language. Use proper grammar, punctuation and correct spellings. If you cannot manage to do that, then please do yourself a favor and quit premed.

Question 3: How to score high in FSc? Is Cramming the answer?
I got 987 marks in matric from federal board and now in punjab college ....I want to know how and how much should I study for fsc to get 1000 above.
secondly I was used to write in my own words but here guys are saying that I should go for book ditto copy to ace fsc.
.tell me about time management of each subject?
Because here papers are mighty lengthy as compared to federal board. 

...................................................................................................................................Saim cheema

For FSc you need to work harder than matric. Study on daily basis i.e. revise all that's taught in your college daily and prepare well for the due tests. Written practice and learning stuff by writing it again and again especially the equations is a must. Do not spend all your nights studying. Sleep well, take care of your health at the same time but make sure you do prepare your tests well if you are unable to revise daily work. Study a science and an art subject daily. Do not neglect english/urdu. To score 1000s your marks in english/urdu matter more than the sciences' marks. Work on paper presentation.
It is not necessary to copy each and every word from book. Follow the book as much as possible. Cram out of your Fsc books as much as you can without loosening the grip on concepts. State points from the books in marker and you can do the explanation in your words using your concepts.
Time management for each subject depends on the length of the paper and the marks of each question. TO manage the time try to write points in answer instead of paragraph and practice a lot in your tests/college exams. For more details, read here

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.
