Being an A level student, I never really realized what it's like to have an array of students arranged in ascending order on basis of difference of marks.
I mean , an A* meant an A* back then, and all was merry!
It wasn't long when I entered KE to have witness a never-ending race of superiority based on the number of marks you get in professionals. I mean it's simply NOT AT ALL, 'JUST PASS' like I had it in my mind or most of Kemcolians you'd encounter in daily routine tell you about!
Step 1 (262) by Rizwan Zafar
I am writing this experience because I think it might help others avoid the mistakes I made during my preparation. I started preparing for step 1 after my final year result was declared, and I took a long time preparing for it. I did all subjects from kaplan except pathology, for which i did goljan and it was a big mistake as it took me more than 3 months to complete it along with my medicine rotation and in the end I almost retained none of it. I hadn't completed my first read until the end of my 3rd rotation of house job i.e 9 months for the first read with house job. I read every subject from kaplan(except patho) along with video lectures for most subjects followed by relevant First aid portion after each subject. For patho I did goljan along with its lectures followed by first aid of patho.

KE ought to have its name in Guinness by now. Not
for its age; neither for its graduates nor for its history. Then? “For
being home to the largest variety of theeta species on Pak Sar Zameen”
These theetas come in all shapes and sizes, may belong to any year, hail from the most metropolitan or the
remotest area, but one thing that they all have in common is their eternal love
for books. No, not books as in any form of literature, but books as in course
books. The drab, dreary and monotonous course books that one doesn’t even want
to see, let alone go near those.
And it is precisely this common love that brings
them together despite their diverse backgrounds and ties them into a bond of theetahood.

How often you come across a special child and you feel like
talking to him? Or do u feel like asking the parents that how are they doing? Do
you feel like asking how he and his family are coping up with their
lives? Or you feel like staying away or
look at them as if they were "aliens". The truth is every person is unique in itself. Allah has
made every individual different: Every individual, beautiful. Every individual
complete, in its own self.
And there are persons to whom Allah has granted something
special. They do not lack anything rather they are gifted by
