The test begins...

So our long-awaited result got announced yesterday, and it's amazing that most of us cleared that veritable terror. First and foremost: Heartiest congratulations to those who made it through. You guys should be proud of yourselves (don't let that get over your heads, though).

This post, however, is intended for those who couldn't make it through. There are always ups and downs in life, and we cannot a smooth ride. It's always going to be tumultuous.

If you didn't pass a subject, that does not mean the end of the world. Remember that failure is never absolute. The wisest and the greatest are those who committed mistakes, and learnt from them. You need to do that too.

This is just another test of your perseverance from Allah. In fact, this is the test. Giving up now is not an option. Now is the time to rethink and perform well.

Remember: failing a test, or even an exam, does not really count in the long run. We are going to become docs, and we need to realise it now: we are going to have to save lives. Better to retake an exam than fail in saving someone's life. Every little thing makes you more wise, more practical.

 Everyone fails sometimes, and probably it's all for the best. It might be a means of saving you from a grievous error: pride.

So that's it for you: trust in Allah, take a deep breath, and just work hard. Make sure this failure is your last. Try hard, and there is no one who can stop you!

1st Year IMPORTANT TOPICS (Anatomy)

By Farkhanda QaiserOkay finally here it is. The all-important guide for the 1st year students. I’ve compiled all the prof and sendup questions of last year as well as the remnants of class tests that I had.But before you go on to read them, keep in mind the following very tested tidbits:For profs, NEVER leave any topic untouched and unread. Go through all topics so that in viva, you have atleast some idea about what the examiner is asking.NEVER lose your sendup question paper because there are high chances that some of the questions will be repeated in profs as you can see in the following example of anatomy question paper and same goes for the MCQs. Most of them are repeated. So here’s what we had done, in our facebook class group, we had made a discussion topic, and everyone told the MCQs of sendups and discussed them. Well, you may think us nerds or whatever but trust me that discussion proved very fruitful for all those who participated in it.I think enough has bin said about orga…

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, …
