How It All Changed

By Laraib Saleem (2015-2020)

Time changes.Just a year ago,the same month was the most depressing phase of our lives.No matter what, the journey from tortured pre medical students to the poor MBBS victims was the best turn life could ever take.
Alhamdulilah :')
I can clearly recall how we held those miniature books of matric and F.Sc and now we carry our very own bulky and humongous Guyton.This is not the only aspect that showed alteration.MBBS has added many more colours to our lives.

•From being those immense theetas and great depressors of our respective classes to the innocent creatures who preferably sleep in the lecture and barely know the topic being taught in the class,we changed.

•Front seat used to be the most favourite spot in 
the class of almost everyone of us.Now front row is the biggest torture.Sitting in the front row means the teacher is going to have an eye on you during the whole one hour.That is something unaffordable so last row is the best relief from this torment.

•Listening to each and every word of the lecture 
and then noting it down was something we did ages ago.Now no one misses the opportunity to sleep in air conditioned old auditorium especially during the golden module days.

•Knowing the solution to any query was not at all a big deal.We used to raise our hands to answer every single question asked by the teacher(Now the same hands mark limitless proxies MA).In the present scenario,some teachers while peacefully delivering their lecture at once start the questioning answering session.In such a situation we don't even know where to hide ourselves.We don't want the teacher to question us because we are too cool to know the answer.

•Being quite studious,we were the apple of every teacher's eye.We owned that favourite student tag.Now the teachers don't even know if we exist on this planet or not.The only interaction you can have with the teacher is:
"You! Yes you.Get out! Get out of the class.How dare you move during my lecture?"
However,sometimes these words can take their intense form as:
"Tangein tor dun gi,moun tour dun gi,hath tor dun gi!"
(I hope everyone knows that teacher)

•"Mama,I topped the test" changed to "Mama,I passed the test".This miserable condition arrived so early.The jump from 90% above to just 50%.Indeed the most abrupt transition so far.

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, …
