The K3wl Kemcolian Syndrome (KKS): Do you have it?

It has been quite some time now since the day I first set foot at KEMU and there were moments when I had to rub my eyes and pinch myself just to check if I was awake because some people make you actually go like:

Yes! These eyes have seen much and finally I think it is time to bring to light 'The K3wl Kemcolian Syndrome aka KKS' so that all of us who suffer from it can at least know that we have it. After all, the first step is always realization. The criteria for diagnosis is quite simple. If you have any three of the below listed 10 signs and symptoms, I hate/love to break it to you but you have KKS.

Without further ado, here we go.

1. If you are in atleast 2 different societies but all you have actually done is absolutely 'nothing':

OR is it?
 And every time someone asks you about it you go like 'I show up with my pretty face! What more do you want?'                                 

Image result for what more do you want  meme
Alright! Sorry! Chill!

2. If your inner Simran awakens every time you go on class trips:

                                              Image result for simran memes
It is not just for girls, I would like to make that clear. Simran is the name of a state, not a woman. Anyone can have it.

3. If every time the community department talks about John Snow, this is all you can see:

                                       Image result for jon snow

Because the person who traced the source of Cholera outbreak and made fundamental changes in water systems of London is not as important as The Lord Commander.

And the real John Snow goes like 'This dude is not even real. He stole my name! What is wrong with kids today? You know what, I Quit. I am out.'

4. If zero point is where you find yourself 90% of the time:
                                    Image result for how did I get here meme

It is a part of you now. It is who you are. It is imprinted in your subconscious mind and it comes to you as naturally as breathing because you like what you see when you get there.

5. If you are chronically late in class and that last minute entry gives you a feeling of accomplishment: 

                                        Image result for I AM COOL meme

Well! That makes the two of us.

6. If wearing shades is your thing and you don't care about the time, place or need:

P.S. Becuase and Its is giving me OCD but it is totally worth it :D

7. If you think attending wards is for losers and you have a life:

This is what your future looks like:
Image result for I will be a serial killer meme
No son! It was you. It was all you.

8. If your life is an open book on Facebook. Literally:

We all know when and what you read, watch or listen. We know where, when and with whom you are eating etc etc, There is just one thing left for you to reveal: your bowel habits.

9. If you think this every time you hear someone speak in Punjabi:

                                               Image result for paindu meme
Ghar mein 'gandairian di rairhi' changes to 'suger cane hawker' in university. I have actually heard plenty of punjabis say 'hamain to Punjabi nahi ati.' Ofcourse! Your grandparents were British. My bad.

10. If you give PROF Reminders 5 months in advance and complain about how you are studying nothing:

                                       Image result for sarcastic thank you meme

Kiun kai agar aap na btatay to hamain to pata hi nahi chalna tha. Owe you one bro.

I hope you haven't just self diagnosed yourself with KKS because I am sorry to say that there is no cure. Now all you can do is proclaim 'KKS and proud'. :D

Until next time, dear readers. Have a good day :)

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, …

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 …

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…
