An SMS that changed my Life

By Kainat Zaffar Laghari
2nd year

Sometimes, in life, THINGS do happen....
Those things which you wish for, they happen in a way you CANNOT even imagine for them to ACTUALLY happen.....
So breaking the ice,here's what really happened!!
In the darkening shadows of "Prof", the gloominess of send ups , melancholy of Preps , the terrifying pre-exam nights, the peace-longing eyes, (not to forget the dark circles around 'em) the thought of a HAPPY LIFE had literally died...............
No Hope ...........
No hangouts with friends........... . 
No EVENTS...................... 
Just me and my miserable pile of books.....
I wished for some Miracle to happen...... . 

But then I recalled :
"Miracles don’t Happen in the real world"
BUT BUT I tried being optimistic for a while and said to myself...
That’s what I wondered during sleep through the nights while the days passed  procrastinating the  thoughts of either to study ANATOMY or PHYSIOLOGY ?
 and like always anatomy would win :

in short I ended up doing nothing....

Days passed, time passed, tick tock tick tock….
And unwantedly, I finally felt the moment of realization……
 “behan… ab kch nai ban na…. exam sar pay and tyari ZERO”
But this moment of realization did not come alone, Yup, it brought with itself moments of despair, even the slightest ability to do anything had long gone…….dizziness and “akhri baar ghar me achi neend puri kr lun” wali khwahish took over…….
Yes it brought with itself the moment of reality that “bby HOME :( hostel is where I belong….”

In this state of almost unconsciousness my phone beeped and I received an SMS…..

The Holy SMS was:
First I thought I must be dreaming :D ( everyone else would have thought the same I bet) ,
But woahh….I pinched myself….. I was definitely awake :D
 I jumped in excitement.... the happiness brought tears in my eyes...And the saying reminisced again, bouncing in my head,,,,,,
So yeah, We actually experienced a moment that doesn’t usually happen, in fact, THIS HAD NEVER HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE!!

And normal people felt a moment pride  for their procrastination
But at the same time, the THEETAS, who had studied so thoroughly, were like: 

So this is how the life at KEMU is……
……. way too “Unexpectedly- AWESOME-er” than the rest of medical colleges :-D

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)
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, …
