Characteristic beliefs of a freshmen!!!

-Romesa Qaiser Khan, 1st Year MBBS

You know you're a freshman when

1. You feel the overpowering urge to enlighten the whole world with wise, pressing questions (which aren't very wise or pressing at all -.-)

2. You actually believe you'll get a distinction by studying anatomy from last.

3. You think nodding, hmm-ing and yes sir-ing will make the professor your New best friend.

4. You believe wearing an overall all the time entities you to a certain amount of swag. 

5.You believe lecture notes are useful.

6. You write down the names of every book, notes, papers, website anyone so much as whispers about in the naive hope that you'll study from them all.

7. Cramming on the bus, in the holidays and before every class will give you a competitive edge. 

8. As long as you learn everything, you'll automatically be a revolutionary doctor.

9. Socializing is a waste of time, you'll get through the next five years on your own just fine. 

10.Class groups aren't really for study related activities.

Everyone there is just really interested in what you ate for dinner, the state of 

your laundry, the name of your cat. 

11. As soon as you finish mbbs, life will be all rainbows and unicorns and you'll never have to study again. (:

    1) taking lecture notes is useful, but dont write every single bullshit word, just note anything u find important.
    2) professors.................stay away from them.
    3) u wont get a distinction unless u r related to a professor so forget it.
    4) u will get through 5 yrs without socializing.....but believe me its a hell lot easier when u have friends.
    5) after starts all over again buddies, be prepared for that.
    6) u dont need to know every single stupid syndrome, just concentrate on understanding things, learn with open minds, understand the basic physiology behind what u r reading and u will do just fine.

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)
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, …
