Voice Of Firstulas By Umer Hassan

By Umer Hassan (1st year)

I reckon, most of you will agree with my thoughts of being a firstula(except a few ultimate theetas xD). Its aint an easy task to jot all this in Anatomy lecture theatre, while shaking head, pretending to be attentive during the boring lectures of cell module(well for sure I wont jot the name of Professor, otherwise it might create problem...LoL) Anyways, I couldnt resist my thoughts and I had to jot all this. Trust me, I had to.... xD

  ●DREAMS AND FANTASY:-                 Well, as a matter of fact....indeed its the place that is a part and parcel of prayers of many Fsc students(for the sake of admission of course). Domes of the Patiala block swirling in their dreams and a desperate urge to be absorbed in the "Creme de la creme"(as they call it xD). Hence, they work hard and study smart to mark the acme of their achievements. Obviously, they have certain expectations associated with this place and trust me, these are inevitable. Alas! most of them get abashed, when they really step into this ,"OPEN ENVIRONMENT"(Please take the sarcasm xD). Anyways, being the son of a kemcolian, I had a notion of all this stuff and so I myself was'nt really surprised. Now lets open the PANDORA BOX and jot the reasons, why firstulas get shocked. 
            ● SHOCKED? Really?
• First and foremost shock:-"The Hostel" xD. After showing commendable performance, newbies expect a lavish living standard from the university/govt. Etc or if not lavish, at least a comfortable stay. Real shock is when they get to know that, 6 persons will be accomodated in each dormitory of Ancient Broom hostel xD. Thanks to government, noise of orange train construction is a complimentary gift for us. That noise!!!! Ahh. 
WASHROOMS further epitomise the shock. Common washroom of floor. Clean and shiny tiles! #iykwim. Bathrooms lacking basic sanitary(like the shower cap) etc.

University life:- These innocent newbies expect that they will also be chilling like their arts friends, posting status updates with hashtag unilife xD but they get abashed to know that they have entered into a plethora of sub stages,stages,modules and after 5 years, CIP is also there to welcome them... LoL
•  Saturday is always on ( How absurd -_-!) "Kya ye khula tezaad nahi?"
• Feeling of an uneducated person in class. Utterly unknown of what the hell is going on :'(
Magical sedation of Anatomy LT further exacerbates the situation.

Well, dont curse me showing the negative aspects only. Relax relax..... we have also witnessed the bright side. Here we go:-
• SENIORS:- The best thing about KEMU. Im the person who has been ragged the most uptill now in whole first year. Yup.... thats damn true, but the fact is that after the so called," interaction" seniors get extremely cooperative and supportive. There are countless seniors whom I rever as well as love. Thanks to Hamza Ashraf bhai(2nd year) xD as he is the man who pushed to me to jot this stuff. 

• HOSTEL:- There is also a bright side of hostel xD for example the 24/7 canteen, squash court etc. Mess is no doubt hygienic and the food is good enough(Mess timing sucks though)

• CHILL:- Well, as far as my personal observation is concerned, one can go through the daily lectures and still can find time for excursion and hangout....( though our current focus is solely on excursion :P)
              Abridging my point, in our 2 weeks stay uptill now, we have tasted a sweet and sour salsa, an amalgam of mood swings and yeah at the moment we are like a pendulum vibrating between 2 extremes. One is HOME SICKNESS and the other is utter CHILL and excursion. I urge you all to pray for us (FIRSTULAS xD) to perpetuate the rest of our journey at the mean position. That pretty much sums it up!

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, …
