16th ALL PAK PARLIAMENTARY CHAMPIONSHIP 2015 - Official Event Review

                                Ayesha Saeed Malik                                    1st year MBBS

After the Declamation Championship King Edward Debating Society held another mega event between 22-25th of May, that marked yet another success on their behalf.

Delegates from different institutions were cordially invited to participate in the event. An enthusiastic participation from their side indeed, since KEDS had to accommodate 2-3 teams from the same institution at a time. 

After three strenuous days of fighting war of words and logic, in the preliminary rounds, various teams succeeded in qualifying for the quarter and semi-finals that took place on sunday. Yes, people actually sacrificed their beloved sundays to show up for their match, to compete for the mighty trophy of honour, demarcating the winner's territory. 

Then came the auspicious Monday - 25th may 2015. A day of perspiration for our finalists; KINNAIRD COLLEGE FOR WOMEN vs. FAST and UOL vs. GCU, a day of DO or LOSE. While on the other hand a regular horrid day for commoners like me, marking the start of yet another hot week of summer at school. 

The day started with English speakers coming up first, to speak on the topic: This House regrets Pakistan-America friendship with KC in proposition and FAST in opposition of the respected topic. A close-hand match was observed between the two teams, both astutely opposing the other's line of arguments. 'Clash of Opinions' appropriately describes the contest between the two rival teams.

After a 10 minute respite the Urdu speakers were called upon the stage to take their respective places. The topic allotted to them was: Ye aiwan muqananeen par har kism ke karobar par pabandi lagata hai with GCU speaking in opposition and UOL in favour of the topic. The feisty arguments between the two opposing teams continued for an hour. The scales of balance kept on shifting till the very moment the results were declared.

Meanwhile certain statements of the spokesmen were recorded, the reply to which were given by the NEWSLETTER KEDS (KNN) in the most hilarious way possible.

KC: " men will think in whichever way they want to think, so its better you stay cautious"
[sahe hai behan sadda kutta kutta tawada kutta tommy.]

"For example, I have a boyfriend 'theek hai' "
[For example I am Barrack Hussain Obama 'theek hai']

BEACONHOUSE: "When the government said Reham Khan married a 70 year old Imran Khan they forgot to mention the fact that DAMN! That guy's HOT!"
[Akhir ye jo PTI se muhabbat hai, ye kisi aur se muhabbat to nai]

FC-B: "The opposition presented us with 3 arguments;
                  a) mango
            b) potato
            c) tomato
[So you had your lunch. And you presented with three arguments;

UMT: "Saima, Noor, Reema chor gai glamour ki dunia ab is ghareeb industry se Ayyan Ali to mat cheeno"
"Ayaan Ali ki waja se nojawanon ka GPA behtar hua hai"
[gandi soch!]

"Ayaan ne chalain lawyers ko selfies lena to sikha dia hai"
[Aur lawyers k ghar ka atta woi selfies bech k ata hai na]

"Pakistan k andar jailon mai Ayaan Ali jaisi atish hussan ko qaid karna zulam hai"
[Dil ki baat kar gia zalim! Kasmay!]

AIMC: "Mai chars peena chahta hun. Mujhay koi peenay nai deta"
[Arey koi to rok lo!]

FC-D Zain Tahir to PU girl: "Mohtarma app buhat khubsurat lag rai hain. Ap beth jain."
[Tharak ka koi waqt muqarrar nai hota akhir]

UOL-A to PMC: "Kiya 1 and half liter wine, 15 glasses k equal hotay hain?"
[Wait, let me call my personal pinsaari. Aidda halaal sawal!]

    UET: Akelay na jana hamain chorr kar.
    [Haan, warna ap gum ho jao gai. Bachay ho na]

4. Message to other teams?
    AMEER-UD-DIN: Hum se bach k rehna GCU!
    [Hamain ghussa aya to hum ne rona shuru kar dena hai]

   PU: dekh lain gai hum apko FC.
   [Dekh lo, dekh lo, ji bhar k dekh lo, jin se harna hai unhain dekh      lo]

   FC-D: AMC awein mar khao gai hum se.
   [sehat dekho aur baatain dekho]

Finally the results were announced!

The Best Speakers of the event were:


Blogger's Critique: Yet another success on KEDS part. Keep it up. Wishing you all the best for coming events in the coming years.

The best part however, was the humour conjured by the KNN team. Well done on your brilliant attempts at putting life, colour and vigour to a somber academic event, and ringing out genuine laughter with your prompt and audacious replies. Lastly, thank you very much for sharing your masterpiece with me.

p.s The air conditioning seriously needs to be tended to.
                                      au revoir!

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 …

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.
