You Didn't Fail MCAT

By Laraib Saleem 

MCAT season is over now leaving a mixed atmosphere of felicity and despondency.Congratulations to all those who are going to start the journey of medical school this year.Best of luck for the new beginning.Those who could not make it to a medical college this year are advised not to freak out.Believe me MCAT or MBBS is not the end of life.

Life has much more to offer than these tests and trials.MCAT is not a destination.It was just a little burdensome part of your whole life.A three hour test is not indicative of your abilities in any case.Being unable to score well in MCAT is not even a bit close to failure.You still own the potential to outshine in every aspect of your life.Do not let that potential fade because of some admission test.

There is also a little fraction of students who are forced to opt medical as their aspiration.As a consequence,they do not score well due to lack of interest.The only recommendation for them is that go and follow your dreams.Pursue the career you like the most.Don't mould yourself according to the society's so called definition of success.Choose your dream profession.Shine in that very field.Keep in mind that success always lies in chasing your dreams.

MBBS or BDS are not the only professions you can have.There are a lot of career options still left for you.Being a pre medical student never implies that you have to do MBBS or BDS only.You can go for pharmacy,physiotherapy,microbiology,biotechnology and numerous other fields.These options are in no way inferior to MBBS.Wherever you go,work hard and prove that you are still a genius.You still have that ability to excel in every single exam of your life.Have a wider outlook of life in which you yourself are the determinant of your success and not any kind of test.

There's no need to lose hope.You can still give MCAT another chance.You are just 'One more try' far from your destination.Gap year is surely a difficult one.It will appear as the most tough phase of your life.But believe me you'll get the reward that you surely deserve.Time doesn't matter in front of your dreams.Allah is there for you every single time you feel low.If Allah has planned to grant you something, he will do that for sure.His timing varies from person to person.Maybe getting into a medical college next year is what Al Rehman has planned for you.

Don't forget that Allah is the best of planners.We can never know the betterment in his decisions.Whatever he does is always in our favour but we never know.If man becomes able enough to understand the incomprehensible happenings in his life,what would be the difference left between man and God. So be contented with his plannings because he loves you more than seventy mothers.

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, …
