Post Kashmir Day

By Hannan Zikrea
 (1st year M.B.B.S)

A day has passed since Kashmir Day. Yesterday, again while watching news I saw great processions being held and protests being made for showing our support to the innocent people of Jammu Kashmir. I have been seeing the same for many years now... But the question is what are we achieving by only making protests?
Let's be real...we aren't achieving much.
In my opinion, the major reason why we haven't been able to solve the issue of Kashmir is because of instability of Pakistan be it political or economical. On the other hand India has been stable economically and politically. According to some stats India's GDP growth (not total GDP) may surpass that of China in near future. That's why India has been the center of interest of global powers in this region. And every time we raise this issue our voice is suppressed.
So, for making Pakistan heard internationally we must improve the current image of Pakistan from "Terrorist Country" to "Economic Hub" of South Asia. Once the interest of global powers lies with us I'm sure that our voice will be heard.
I will conclude by saying that along with these protests...On this day we should resolve to work earnestly and honestly for our country so that we make it a better place and then I believe that one day "the paradise" called Kashmir will be ours. (in sha Allah)

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, …
