“ABC”


By Lubaba Mukhtar (ex-first year)


No, no, no!! I’m really not dumb enough to try and give a lesson on the English alphabet on a blog: that would be way too main-stream! (Although I think many of us could use a little help with the revision of “alif, bay…”)
So if it’s not the English alphabet that I’m trying to indicate here, what is it?
Many of you will already have understood what I’m referring to and for those who spent their early teens watching “kyunke saas bhi kabhi bahoo thi and kahani ghar ghar ki, etc,” I’m referring to the famous, beloved, and absolutely enchanting story of three random yet extraordinary army chaps. I’m talking about:

The “ALPHA, BRAVO, CHARLIE”

It’s almost a phenomena now so it wouldn’t be wrong to use “the” before it, right?





Anyways, with or without “the”; “Alpha, Bravo, Charlie” is the best and easiest way to make anyone fall in love with our army. The story line has humorous, patriotic, romantic (yes, yes, it does have the romantic element, you won’t be disappointed), and melancholic tinge to it.
It makes you laugh out loud (sorry, the humor isn’t strong enough for “ROFL”); it makes even a dead hearted person feel the pain of those people; it makes even a brain dead person think not once but many times: “why didn’t I see this before?”




As far as I know; most of you out there will have seen it already; this blog is just a way to wake up those who are still deprived of the sweet, sour, spicy, salty and bitter taste of this epic drama serial.
Some of you will fall in love with Faraz for his looks, his charms, his big pocket and success. (He is your prince charming, girls! The one you all want to end up with).
Even more of you will fall in love with Kashif for his humor, his sloppiness, his rebellious nature and quick wit.
And all of you will fall in love with Gulsher because I think it’s impossible not to adore him.



                   I’m not telling who’s who? Watch the drama!!


Now, for the guys; please don’t take an oath of not watching this drama yet…there is definitely a “girl” in the story; and not just any girl; she is the girl of many a man’s dreams: beautiful, chic, confident, down-to-earth and… (Please add other words of praise yourself because she’s simply awesome)!!




I think I may have stressed too much on “the falling in love part”.
There are so many other aspects to this serial. It teaches you humility and patience. It urges and convinces you to either leave everything there and then to enroll yourselves in the army or to at least give some army man a huge thank you present.





It will give you tachycardia, sweats and nervous tremors at one point and sudden unexpected activated tear glands at another.





It will make you love your country more; it will make you acknowledge the sacrifices of those countless men who died; who fought; who suffered so that we could sleep peacefully tucked away in our warm beds. You owe watching this drama to yourselves, to your country and to your army. Give yourselves a chance to feel grateful to Allah for creating those brave, selfless men sacrificing themselves in the line of fire for you every day.





 Those of you who have seen it once, you won’t regret watching it again. Those who haven’t seen it once (shoot yourselves!), ah no! Just watch the drama! For those whose proff is over and are now in the proff free time of the year; go for it! And for those whose proff is not over, I think I’ll just shut up before I’m shot in my sleep!

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.

So lets start with the discussion here, but PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS ENTIRELY MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND REASONING WHY I PREFERRED AUSTRALIA OVER USA FOR RESIDENCY.

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…

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.
