Anyways, 11 stations me se 8 pe u have 4 minutes to write jo b unho ne poocha
Some stations pe u do end up sparing a few seconds (like the one with conversions and the one with ID and uses ) so u can complete previous incomplete questions in tht time ( welcome to the new level of juggling tasks :3)and if those two are ur first stations , then u need a new game plan XD
ID me we had tincture cardamom and measuring glasses
Conversions 1tsp =? ml, 1m= ?inches, 12 solid ounce =? Pounds, 1mg=? Micrograms

Suppose drug depressant hai kaisay prove kro gay its sympatholytic
Drug kaisay dalo gay daal k dikhao
Phr sir thought experiment questions are too mainstream kuch aur poochna chahye XD
Brady arrhythmias kia hotay? Examples do, treat kaisay krte, atropine de skte? CCF me konse drugs will be safe (There were like koe 5-10 sawal aur but u know how something traumatic happens and then ur brain decides to forget all abt it, THAT ) xD

Sir riaz will probably ask u the same question 3 times during the viva tongue emoticon n forget he asked u and ask again xD baqi easy e pooch re
Glaucoma ki treatment, kaha rehti ho? Abu doctor hain? Kia krte hain? Light reflex kia hota pathway btao ,atropine k eye pe effects (this was asked 2-3 times xD) Ooper se he kept saying aur aur (atropine can only do so much to the eye tongue emoticon )

Sir nawaz is the best
Super cool, experiment related questions hi, suppose pehle aik bndi gayi hai n ab tm ayi ho mere pass me kehta hu 16 micrograms wala kr k dikhao wht will u do, (I said il start with 3 times washing wala step in case Pichla bnda kuch daal k gya ae) phr he said acha ku wash krte, 16 micrograms kaisay lo gi,
Shuru se shuru krna ho tou kia kro gi (experiment me shuru se e explain kia) and itne asan questions thay k I can't seen to remember them at all xD there were a couple more lekin mushkil koe ni tha

Baqi agr kisi ne mje kal bta dia hota k beta there will be 5 times in prac when u will think k ye complete ni ona even when u know it tou shyd aaj kam dukh hota XD
If u have time tou I suggest likh likh k yaad krlo stuff cuz waha sochnay ka time ni ona
All the best smile emoticon

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, …

USMLE Step 2 CK experience by Rizwan Khan (254)


     I recently got done with Step 2 CK exam & I want to elaborate my experience and the mistakes that I made during my prep so that any of my colleagues who are preparing for this exam might benefit from them. 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.
