KEDS 15 Executive Cabinet - The family of Rethoricians




Arfa Ahmad

Chief Coordinator

So it started in first year when I only joined KEDS because of My sister Iqra. At that time I didn't even know the basic format of parliamentary debates. But the fire and desire of making the argument and convincing others my point of view was in me which got polished during my stay at KEDS. Being the Inter class Winner for two consecutive years and making it to finals and semi finals of various All Pak tournaments I consider it secondary. As for me the real essence of KEDS is the friendships relations and the amazing time I had at KEDS. KEDS truly for me is family. And I have here the most amazing seniors and juniors. The fun we have while at various tournaments ,these are the moments I will cherish even after passing out. And yes debating itself gives you the confidence of interacting people at various levels and according to me public speaking is one of the thing we should be good at and KEDS definitely provides a chance to boost up this talent. Lastly the respect is the utmost thing which is the integral part of being at KEDS.


Fatima Qamar
Co-ordinator

This is Fatima Qamar, involved in the pursuit of Medicine and Surgery and almost scraping through the penultimate year. As a freshman, I was an eager participant of the debating society, as a member as well as a competitor. From recruiting people in the society as a GR, to speaking at various universities and winning at home the King Edward Debating League in first year, debates sure has had an impact on me and my times here at KE.
It has been an amazing experience getting to interact with a lot of other people on a similar platform and seeing new faces other than those we are forced to spend 5 years with tongue emoticon , jk.
My team mate Aleesha has been one constant that I have been blessed to have. Be it KDL with Aniqa or winning the Inter class with Anam Fatima Baji, I could not have asked for better team mates and an amazing opportunity to be friends with such people.
MUNning and Parliamentary have been a memorable chapter of my student life. I look forward to making the most of it in my final year. Insha'Allah.


 

Ahmad Rafay Afzal
 Assistant Secretary Parliamentary 

The first time I got the taste of the stage was when I competed in my intra - school debates . I was in third grade . I walked up to the mic and forgot my speech . I stood there and cried for 3 minutes but never left the stage .When the bell rang the teacher brought me down . When my mother asked the teacher that why didn't she take me down sooner , she said "to end his fear of doing the worst he can ,because now he's already done the worst and the only way for him now is to make it better ." From that day onward I fell in love with public speaking . The rush you get on stage ,  The exhilarating feel , when you know that people are listening to you , only you , the knowledge of your own ability to maybe change someone's life by your words, it's indescribable. 
Even before coming to KEMU I knew about KEDS through Hammad Shafi and I knew that it was something I had to be a part of .I got my first taste of parliamentary in first year , the power of logic influenced me unlike anything else . One of the proudest moment of my life was when I won my first trophy in Parliamentary , all thanks to countless hours of mentoring by seniors like Saad and Umair bhai.
I started speaking humour , just because it was difficult and very few people were able to do it . Humor appealed to me because the idea to make someone's day by enabling them to laugh at the simple realities of life is just brilliant and fulfilling .
Winning is something that seldom comes in the categories that I have chosen , but then again winning is not the goal . KEDS has been like a family , because somehow earning respect by giving it has become a tradition in the society . I'm  proud to have such people around me who respect their seniors and care for their juniors , indiscriminately. We have been at the cross hairs of controversy this year , but the house of fearless has proven it's mettle time and again . As we often say through our flashy posters ,  the power of logic is stronger than the logic of power and time will prove this statement InshaAllah .

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…

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.
