Potatoes of KEMU

By Eesha Razia (2015-20)

Oh yes, indeed KE has a lot of cool kids and by now all kemcolians have become well aware of humans of kemu, stars of kemu, graduates of kemu, firstulas of kemu, success stories of kemu and even retards of kemu…but that is so unfair to ignore the biggest lot of the all….that is “ potatoes of kemu”.

Being a potato myself, this biased attitude has pained me like hell…I mean come on people. We give you the audience, we give the background, the general applauders, we are the crowd, ignoring us is so not fair. So today I’m gonna give you a brief insight into the life of the unknown, unpopular but still there, potatoes!!
  “Its miserable and magical, oh yeah!”

Hopes:

                          In the beginning, like all the cool kids we too had real high hopes but the thing is that all my class mates turned out to be some breed of F16 jet planes. I mean I was still just getting used to the ‘amazingly beautiful’ infrastructure of KE and looking for friends when these people had already made their squads and done their debuts. And we just stood open-mouthed… (shukar hai makkhi nahi chali gayi..xD)



Studies:

                    Thank God studies was one thing every cool, stupid, nerd, intelligent, dumb, backbencher, every type of student found equally difficult and strange as we had no idea that:


I mean yeah we knew studies hadn’t ended and that we weren’t just gonna start with disease and medicine but hey...excuse me...4 types of anatomies…modules..? Nobody ever mentioned that…



Societies:

                      While a lot of my class fellows literally sprung upon the societies and the seniors like bees, they actually turned out to be the party poopers for the potatoes! To start with, I really thought that becoming member of a society was all you needed...Joke of kemlife…! To start with you really need a talent but as it happens in our case,


Then as if *talent required* is not enough, we also require a squad, managing time, doing tireless work when the events come, (and so far from what we have seen first year is basically meant to be the sweepers, keepers, waiters, maids, and chairs uthaany waaly) but also  befriending seniors. That’s the key, the bloodline, the heart and soul, literally ‘the everything’ to make name in society, in fact in uni!!


And the potatoes just don’t have enough confidence for that. We always shy away from talking to any bhai or aapi saying “ we will look weird”

                             

Events:

                       They do enjoy the events though...with that low voice whispering in the back of their minds…No big deal...i could have done this too…if only I had a little more courage!




Life overall:

             “We’re happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time”                        


Basically first go to uni...saying ‘Sara shughal to uni me hai’...then see the popular kids and be like ‘aap aa jao har jaga’


Go to the café saying ‘let’s just eat something different and delicious today’ then see the items there and be like ‘well….im not hungry anymore’


Go to the lecture saying ‘we can study at least’ then in the lecture ‘o man this sucks we shouldn’t have come…in fact there was a meeting of those interested in organizing the upcoming event...should have gone!’

On every new event be like… ‘Yar bohat ho gya ab kuch krna hai’ and have lengthy conversations as to what can be done…sound as confident as possible, then go to home, realize that to get this all done you have to sacrifice your sleep, hence declare ‘I’m not in the mood…really’


When the event comes ‘we should totally go just attending an event can be fun too.’ and during the event ‘yar is ne bhi kiya participate, yar wo organizer hai, OMG! Even that group is in...’ but try to laugh and smile anyway and look normal while having to praise others…



And end up feeling depressed and inferior…but then cheer up each other, crack jokes, go home happy with plans of studying, do a ‘dam darood’ on ourselves at night and go to sleep with this thought:

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, …
