Ayesha Mushtaq, Class of 2019, has been head over heels in love with KemUnited even before getting admitted to KE. She serves KemUnited in the capacity of writer, photographer and class representative. She primarily indulges in blogging about the various aspects of life at KEMU. Her favourite chill out spot in KE is the Pharma Wall, for it offers a convenient view of the campus. She wishes to accomplish the following before graduation:
  • survive 5 years of torture in the name of professional exams
  • contribute to Kemcol
  • become a good doctor
  • turn into a strong, empowered woman
  • set up her own blog and be able to reach out to a diverse audience  (Updated: August 2017 - The blog is now a reality; she blogs at )


This was where the journey of contributing to KemUnited began, only two days after the merit list came out. A bird's eye view of the closing merits for all the public sector medical colleges in Punjab.

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, …
