POST-VACATION BLUES

Chutyan khatam….. nahiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii….. !!

Too dramatic isn’t it….. ;)
But seriously……….. at this very moment everybody;s thinking the same……..
“vacations… why you end so sooooon!!!”



Well shouting out loud does help, it lets all the frustrations out.
But the reality won’t change because we need to realize that complaining is not going to do anything.
The only things that console us are the good times we had at home especially the round the clock “blissful sleep”.

We think
“Vacations ka THE END means life ka THE END”.

Remember that it isn't as bad as we think it is. We'll have friends/coworkers to talk to, and We'll have some routine again.
Think about the fact that we’ll be back to the "real" world. We are medical students and we should focus on that. (ok I know it feels terrible even reading this, trust me we have mutual feelings, coz it feels like killing yourself right now coz our heart  aches thinking about going back to school) But this is not going to help anyone.
Think about meeting friends and the fun we’ll have chasing after each other (and not the post-vacation tests).


The most difficult role here is of the hostellites. They have to leave their families and homes again which makes it really depressing. Sometimes it gets difficult to get over the fact that we’ll miss our Families a lot, especially “Maa ki god may sona, Papa say ladyan krna and the FIGHTS with the siblings” and when we whine about it in front of our friends they try to be cool (in my case) and we get to hear taunts like, “grow up, bachy he rehna tum, baray ho jau ab”

 But Yes, then they console us too because as I told you before, ”mutual feelings”.
"mil k rotay hain" :")

In a nut shell, I know it's not fair that we Medical students get only a one-month-vacations but we really don't need to cry over it. Rather we should start remembering how to do our work again !! 



You and I need to be strong especially the "Freshmen". Don't take studies as burden yet, beacuse the "the time which-should-not-be-named" is yet to come.
Seeing statuses on FB like:


well that is a hell of a problem.
So start packing folks!!

It’s not the end of the world just vacations ka THE END !!

Take it easy, take care of yourselves and all the best. !!

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, …
