Notes to Self - Promises that I make every year

Notes to self - Promises that I make every year
 "I talk to myself because I'm the only one who listens to me"
"The Anxiety Girl"

Dear future me,
Remember the time when you were nose-deep in s*** before the send-ups last year? Yeah, well I am from that time :D
Let me tell you one thing. Situation: NOT GOOD...
Lets not beat about the bush and get to the point shall we?

1. First of all, when you read a textbook with the author referring to the readers as "The reader should revise HIS previous knowledge about..." and then referring to psychological patients as "HERS"...YOU DO NOT INSTANTLY CLOSE DOWN THE BOOK, BRAND THE AUTHOR AS A SEXIST AND REFUSE TO READ THAT PARTICULAR TEXTBOOK... Unless you want to flunk that is...which I have it with good authority that you don't...

2. Another very imp thing, READ THE TEXT ... After a lecture, before a lecture, WHENEVER but just make sure that you have read it at least once... Just paying attention during the lectures- good to get you through but not enough so do yourself a favor, READ THE TEXT AT LEAST ONCE. Because what you don't want to do, is be reading a whole unit for the first time in your life just before the send ups and obviously not completing it XD. Then someone asks you about your plan for send ups you don't end up saying
PLAN: Allah g plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz paper ata ho :P
Lets get serious here shall we? :P (< yes i know that was the wrong smiley for "getting serious" .-.)

3.When not getting anatomical relations, open Last's Anatomy (text) and KLM (diagrams)

4. Complete your practical copies when sir is giving a lecture. Instead of scribbling blah blah blah on your notebook. So that while you're sitting right in front of him, taking notes. It would help because when sir calls you upfront to draw pulsus bigeminus on the board XD you would know what the s*** he's asking you to do for once in your life XD

5. Histo practicals, What u want to do is COMPLETE THE TEXT DURING THE LAB -_- It will make life a whole lot easier :P

6. Physio graphs and charts should be on your fingertips, just keep practicing them.

7. Histo diagrams should be on finger tips

8. As for notes, :'( You don't get time to read notes AND books before send ups :O but making notes helps....sooooooooo here's a suggestion, make notes then read the chapter then write down the extra points on sticky paper and get a neurosurgeon to crack open your skull stick em to your brain and close the lid (lid being your skull) *yaaaay problem solved* ooooooor just stick them in your book, that also works *shrugs* .-. And then eat the book.

9. oh and one more thing, you know when you get notes copied from someone when you are absent (n without even going through them once) you put them in some file, or tuck them in a book or "save" them in the dark corners of a drawer or something equally intelligent that you cant remember later, just wanted to tell you that you found all that s*** AFTER the profs :3 another thing: the assignments you spent hours on? those too :3
so what im trying to say here is, thanx -_- reaaaally helpful stuff, oh wait. yeah the profs are OVER -_-  so what u want to do is, next time, give this stuff to the neurosurgeon too :3

10. when asked to give a definition, "to define is to limit" -----> not a suitable answer .-. k? .-.

11. past papers *sighs* (enough said)
so lets summarize :
> histo, ga, embryo sath sath
> klm clinicals for each substage
> complete copy during practical time
> all units should be read at least once
> ganong too if possible
> practical copy complete
> *************
> so what you do is TREAT IT AS A SUBJECT, that should fix the problem -_-

*Discussing Biochem pof preparation plans with friends*

and in the end, I know you wont follow all of this XD that I know because you (you=I here) started writing this waaaaaaaaaay befooooooooore the send ups, n after that opened it today and finally completed it... I put the PRO in procrastination B)
oh well, you know what they say, "procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday" ;)  (maybe if you could keep it to yesterday or even the previous week NOT the previous month(s) -_- that might also help make the situation better :3 )
at least really.....just try.... .-.

DISCLAIMER: this article was not written in a stable condition of mind, do not brand the writer as crazy.. I am saying this because majority is authority...since 8/15 voices in my head agree I am not crazy, hence I am not O:) and with that cheers people! happy 2nd yr :D

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)

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, …
