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.

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, …

Australian Medical Council AMC Part 1 Guide - Experience and Tips

AMC Part 1 by Dr. Asad Khizar Malik (Rank : 77/620) Australian Medical Council  Guide - Experience and Tips
Salam people, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. Hope everyone is doing great. I'll try to write as much as I can for the people who are due to various reasons more interested in joining Australian Hospitals for post-grad training as compared to the USMLE pathway.

I am a graduate of King Edward Medical University, class of 2004-2010. I did my 6 months house job after graduation in Mayo Hospital, and after that, i gave my AMC Part 1 in November, 2010 from Brisbane. With the grace of Allah, I passed that in first attempt.


First thing in mind that comes with post grad training in Pakistani doctors minds is: Which way to go after graduation? That is a very tough decision that is …

The tree that never had to fight For sun and sky and air and light, But stood out in the open rain And always got its share and rain, Never became a forest king, But lived and died a scrubby thing… Good timber does not grow with ease, The stronger wind, the stronger trees.
Getting yourself educated in the desi manner i.e. through the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education is one of the top most challenges of today’s society. Matriculation seems difficult at that time, but when you enter FSc, you realize that matric was the easiest job in the world.  Those obese books of intermediate part I and part II are the worst enemies one can ever have.  People say Medical is tougher, but I find one basic difference in both. When you enter a medical college, y…

I wont go much in detail about how to prepare and where to prepare from since it is already highly debated on the forum and in the previous posts but would focus more on my personal experience and the bad choices which I made during the preparation phase.
