Dawn of Reality

So you finally got admission in King Edward, you must be the most fortunate person of this entire planet.
This is perhaps the feeling everybody gets when he or she sees his or her name on the list. The feelings of joy and superiority. The first thing you do when you get admission is that you read the kemunited blog and are amazed by the fantastic use of vocabulary and memes your seniors have made, you are dazzled

and think to yourself in some time I will be able to do the exact same thing but  better.

I wont talk about the first day at king Edward because many seniors have already  thrown light upon it. After two days you realize your class fellows are well way above you in intellect at least where information is concerned, even those whose merit is below you are likely to do better than you oh ,now that’s stress. Forget about people that are supposed to be below you, the upgraded students are even better than you. now that’s real stress. No matter what you do to impress you just can’t impress anyone well except for your relatives and non medical friends.
your first sub stage comes and you are shaking with fear the minute you see your respective professor you forget everything, that hardly 5 feet person is making a giant like you sweat, you forget everything and give answers even you don’t know about,its just so frustrating.You sweat like crazy even in this cold basically become him
when you come out you want to cry but control yourself with assurance perhaps someone has done even a worst job than you but alas when result comes up you have passed with an exact 50 due to courtesy of the professor and everyone else has scores 60 or at least a decent 55.At that moment your brain bulb fuses or as I like to say “fuse ur gya”,and you remember the famous saying of sports “it doesn’t matter whether you win or lose” but let’s be honest:

You think go to hell everybody, but deep inside your ego is hurting. you Google some motivational quotes to make yourself feel better and even watch movies but never study,lets be honest after that fall who in their right mind would want to study,you again open the KEMU blog to find inspiration from your seniors but are again disappointed when you notice some of your class fellows have made such posts which are dripping with hard core English and you remember pre KEMU days when you thought you would be the one to make such posts.
And finally after a mere  month your motto becomes
And you are likely to become this
And your class fellows will stare you
They are likely to treat you like an idiot probably wondering the same thing as you how the hell you got here?.
But the best thing is that as time passes you will find true friends who will stick with you like an elfi.They will be like you and you will have the best time of your life with them and you will be thankful that you are not a theta
Dedicated to all the med students who are not theetasand last but not least if you find belittling yourself just remember

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…
