KE - Through a Minion's Eyes

Maryam Ayub 3rd Year


       In KE there it is commonly thought that there are two groups of Kemcolians . One are the prof.  toppers and distinction holders (commonly known as theetas) and the other are the society people.  About a hundred students which run and own the social aspects of Kemcolian life. Both groups consider themselves the face of KE. But between these two Groups in an ocean of obscurity are the majority of students who fall in neither category. These are the people who have participated in atleast a couple of events over the years and are inactive members of atleast one society.

Memoir of a Kemcolian

"The ultimate mystery of life is one’s own self." (Rabbit)
Memoir of a Kemcolian:
We sat innocently in the Kemcaana lab reading for our Physiology test. I was deep in thought about the fetal distress syndrome when suddenly the man named Rashid descended upon us. “ Are you currently using the computer?” he said. We looked up into his angry face and replied honestly: “No.” “Then please vacate these seats immediately.”

USMLE Step 2 CK experience by Rizwan Khan (254)

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE MOST BENEFICENT AND MERCIFUL

     I recently got done with Step 2 CK exam & I want to elaborate my experience and the mistakes that I made during my prep so that any of my colleagues who are preparing for this exam might benefit from them. 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.

MCAT Preparation in 15 Days ! Medical College Admission Test Experience

MCAT in 15 Days !Medical College Admission Test Experience
(The following info pertains to MCAT 2010 when the new govt resolved to terminate the monopoly of MCAT mafia aka academies by conducting the test immediately after FSc exams )



This isn’t some academy advertise offering money back guarantee or a magical guide book enclosing spells to defeat the MCAT monster in emergency mode. It’s just a simple story of how I prepared for the MCAT in about 15 days, got a 90% and made it to KE. (Along with those other 300 brilliant minds) Never thought I’d be sharing my experience 4 years after the exam because it was expected that all the upcoming batches will be facing the same fate and this mystery called MCAT will solve for good but it turned out that we were the only ones to have faced the worst. Hope this experience somehow helps the kids who are appearing for MCAT next month and are freaking out already.

Book Review: The Cuckoo's Calling

-Unsa Athar - published in US magazine, The News  http://e.thenews.com.pk/9-20-2013/us_page8.asp

I saw this post on Readings Book Store Facebook page about a crime fiction novel written by JK Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith and since I am done with my FSc and am allowed now to buy and read novels, I got all excited about it - like I had been about the last HP book before its release. Hence, when The Cuckoo’s Calling came out I bought it instantly, despite the eye-popping price, and spent my send-ups prep leaves reading it and had to deal with the disastrous consequences later!

Gaming on HP Notebook 1000: The Shahbaz Sharif Laptop

A Review of Great Games By: Muhammad Salik
It’s Ramadan with a topping of Prof Season’s Special Prep Leaves. And for the Kewl people of 2nd year who just got there Profs extended THIRTY DAYS beyond the expected date, everybody is in an existential crisis about what to do next, after watching all these movies in IMDB top 250 Movies list and going through all the 9 + TV series by staying awake tirelessly through the nights, staring at our mighty Shahbaz Shaarif Laptop without even blinking, some of us have now run out of things to do.

Unofficial Societies at KEMU (part 2)

Unofficial societies at KEMU (part 2) lubaba mukhtar 1st year
It took me some digging and research but at last I found out the remaining unofficial societies of the KEMU underworld.
King Edward Evils’ Society (KEES):
The members of this society are honest, diligent, disciplined, never giving up, work loving students and people who fulfill their duties with integrity (they’re like wood peckers, always busy with their beaks pecking something). They’re found in lecture theatres; if you can’t seem to locate them, start looking at faces hidden behind books. Their weapons are their notebooks and pens, always with them. These deadly weapons are used to hypnotize the irregular and indisciplined fellow students into believing that they’re useless (I don’t doubt they are, but making them realize this: that’s awfully cruel).


STOP YAWNING, YOU’RE DESTROYING THE PEACE OF THIS CLASS!!!

Book Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

By Lubaba mukhtar

We can’t ever understand or feel what a cancer patient goes through; we can only imagine; and when I read “the fault in our stars” by john green; I felt like all the people in the clutches of this monster in this novel seemed to say:

Book Review: Darbaar-e-dil by Umera Ahmed

By Lubaba mukhtar
1st year
It’s an Umera Ahmed novel so many of you must have already read it, but I thought it’s such a teaching piece of literature that it should be farther recommended to those who haven’t yet had the privilege of reading it. It’s a must read for girls especially of ages 14-18; even if you’re older than this; I think it can still teach any lass a lot. It’s a story laying emphasis on the beautiful fact that there is no one who loves us more than our Lord. It’s a story of the strength of prayer, it’s a story of the foolishness of “ashraf-ul-makhlookat”. It’s a story of bending our destiny, changing our fate by the strength of prayer. It’s a story teaching us that:
