[AsK]emUnited Question 5: Study schedule for FSc


Premed/FSc Guidance and Counselling Initiative.

 Question 5: What time table can make me ace FSc?
can you suggest me a good time table to study? plus I keep on forgetting whatever I learn. Its really hard for me to grasp science subjects.

Time table is one of the things unique to every person. The schedule that suits my life style and studying habits might not turn out good for you. So first figure out what suits you. Is it easier for you to study under the sun in daylight or during the night when everybody at your place is asleep. The study hours again depend on you.
If you can sit for an hour or so and study tik k or you like taking mini breaks every half hour. Make a time table that best suits you. The things to be kept in mind while making a time table are:
1. Make sure you stick to it and finish the daily target.
2. Give maximum hours of your day to study.
3. Never compromise your sleep hours unless it is really really important to keep awake.
4. It is advisable to take mini breaks after an hour or so.
5. Set priorites; do the weak subjects first.
6. Remove all possible distractions while studying.
7. Your time table should be flexible. Don't be too harsh on yourself. Take it easy. 
To grasp science subjects, you need a good teacher and full concentration. Try to understand the basics first then go for the learning. Draw diagrams. Search the net for animations. Ask questions. Discuss with peers. To memorize stuff write it! Rewrite it! Rerewrite! Make some one at home/college listen the sabaq from you. Or another way that I love is to learn a topic and present it to an empty room as if you are delivering a lecture as a teacher (you have to cover each point for your invisible students :D )
Good luck!

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.

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, …

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.
