      No diatribe regarding the grandeur of my university but beguiling is its air; just like HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE, (neither holy nor roman n nothing like an empire). You'll say "what? K.E is not like the dreamt of, thought of K.E? Perhaps flu affected your nerves also. ''I’ll clarify: for a person suffering from zoophobia, it seems more like an (ANIMAL PLANET); definitely not my childhood favorite channel, it’s about OUR LIFE live from K.E. Lets begin our VISIT TO THE ZOO the way it begins everyday.



    Biology classes must have told you that these gentlemen (some might be ladies as well) inhabit tombs and shrines, and you at once come to know why they chose K.E; the home of once alive KEMCOLIANS (one of the most ancient places in Lahore)                                           
Amidst your stroll to lecture theatres, (anatomy department in particular) these birds show their animal instinct; but this SWEET BLASPHEMY falls like the atom bomb on you and out of blue you feel sorry for the hundreds and thousands of all other victims of this catastrophe before you.                                                               

 CHOOHAY (mouse n rat seem too civilized)   

  G.A told u the word muscle came from mouse (seriously??) if u call these hypertrophied hostellite creatures as mice then my lord; give me the right to call quadriceps femoris as biceps brachii and their mighty tail as Sartorius. They have been genetically mutated such that they no longer fear humans, and if this EVOLUTION continues, I don't think that the day is far when a chooha will be sitting on my bed screaming “get out of my room you filthy little human hostellite!"                       


     You generate growling, squeaking, begging, daunting; all kinds of hideous tones from your throat to scare them but end up scaring yourself because they are are as brave as merida                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          WHAT'S SCARY? Jack Torrance? No, zombies? No, kings ghost in hamlet? No, no, it is at once catching a look of something after which, all u remember is: “ammiiii bchaoooo!!!”                                            


 And don't freak out when you see them open  the door like a boss !                                                                                                                                                                    


                                                                                                                                                                                 Not the whole show, only the friendship part: tom n jerry wandering all around the hostel together, arm in arm, enjoying their meals together. Happy times! And that explains why they follow Malthus’ law of population!

 Two school of thoughts exist about them. Folk tales regard them as “THE WISE” And folks regard them as ULLU. Now the enigma is that they look like humans but are NOCTURNAL in habit, stay up at night, their noise of cramming anatomy fills up the air with mellifluous lullabies. They are the charm of darkness and like vampires they rush to their hidings at the day break. u got it right: They are the might, nocturnal, not so obvious theetas!!                                                                                                                                                        


 Um no, I’m not kidding. Where do they live? INSIDE horcruxes of Voldemort in harry potter. But they can only be strongly felt when a teacher asks you something in front of the whole class, mildly felt when your friend asks you something difficult considering you non gadha and you know what? You have no doubts about being a gadha when sitting in front of HOD in PROF!!!    

I hope you all have a great time in your walks and talks with the cats, in your race to escape from the mighty pigeons and your ten feet jumps when a rat decides to greet you suddenly.

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…

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.
