KemLabs

“Don’t miss the labs! Otherwise be prepared for a repeater session!” It is a common advice given to the first year students by their seniors. The best part of these labs is that they provide free time in the monotonous routine of lectures. (In case you attend all the lectures :D)

Now, here are my observations about these labs as a first year student.

Histology Lab

The first five to ten minutes of this lab are a bit tensed. Questions are asked during this period. The best way to avoid the questions is to sit on a small stool and avoid eye contact with teacher. The more successful but difficult method is to hide in a small space under the shelf.
In the preliminary part of session, Histo lab seems to be fun. You have to draw merely a few cells and get it checked by the teacher. However as the time progresses, Histology lab proves the fact that it lies within the premises of Anatomy department. The diagrams become difficult and scary. But it still remains fun for those interested in arts. A person often feels that he has got admission in N.C.A(National college of arts) instead of K.E.M.U(I need not to tell the full form:D)


Biochemistry lab

According to my perspective biochemistry lab is the most onerous. Fans are turned off in this lab even during scorching heat of summer. The probable logic behind this brutal act remains a secret.  No one has ever asked a question about it. Although we are quite aware of the fact that power to question is the basis of all human progress. After performing the experiments, test tubes are presented to His Royal Highness The Attendant of Biochemistry lab. He considers it essential to BISTIFY students before marking the attendance (the ultimate reason for which the students come to university) However, the notebook of biochemistry is not that difficult to make.


Physiology lab

In physio lab, teacher comes and gives a demonstration about the experiment. He most often leaves after giving the demonstration. Now you are free to talk with your friends. Some people prefer completing their notebooks.  The lab attendants will tell you a simple method or in other words DESI METHOD to perform the experiment. One of the two physio labs is in very good condition. Thus overall physio lab is not that taxing.

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)

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, …
