 Maryam Shahid 


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. Read what Unsa Athar has to say how she fought and defeated the monstrous FSc.
 

Enduring the pre-med years Fatima Qamar tells you how to deal with the darkest of years in one's academic life with hope and positivity.





A Levels students: You can make it to KEMU
Whenever Zanira Ali told anyone about her plans and the fact that she was doing A Levels, people told me that she was wasting my time over something with 0.1% probability. She never gave up and now she is a kemcolian! "Let me tell you something today, if you can work with dedication and perseverance you are in for a surprise. Many of the topics in physics and chemistry are those which you have already done and a little Biology everyday will keep all the trouble away."


Guide to FSc & MCAT
Maryam Akbar did her F.Sc from KIPS COLLEGE and got 1st position in BISE Lahore by securing 1030/1100 marks. Currently student of 4th year MBBS at King Edward Medical University Lahore, she been delivering motivational lectures to intermediate students since 2010. Read what she's got to say to all the aspiring kemcolians out there. 



Guidance/Counselling:

MCAT didnt go too well? Not to worry. Ayesha Mushtaq compiles a list of alternative but related career options instead. 

Choosing the path to glory.. KEMU AIMC or FJMC.. Done with MCAT but confused about the priority list now? Let Unsa Athar help you.





Road To Prestige...Choosing The Right Institution "There are many things seniors advise that you should keep in mind while giving preferences to a college including hostel, staff, attached hospital and its faculty, building, your hometown and other related things. In such cases, most of us follow trends. 
But that is not a thing I am talking about. My concern is the thing I mentioned in the start: YOUR GOAL." -Muhammad Usama

Time Management! (A general analysis) Once, just once, go through the lives of great people like Jinnah, Iqbal, Liaqat Ali Khan, Sir Syed, and above all our own Holy Prophet (SAW) who happened to be the busiest of all with the tightest of schedules (I need not elaborate, we all know). Did those personalities ever crack down as to lick the dust at the hands of their reckless approach towards their mighty responsibilities? A big NO, it is. So learn how to manage your time in an effective manner by benefiting from the tips given by Syed Ahmed Raza.

    1. aoa. listen to ace fsc is not much difficult. it takes some of ur hardwork and determination. when it comes to ratta or cramming the truth is that not only ratta or concepts can make u bound to get good marks. u need to get the full concepts of the topic, even if u have to take a day or so to understand, but then make sure u learn it and write down on a piece of paper. enough. moreover, if ur not good at ratta no big deal to write ditto of the text book but try to stick to the definition as they are; explanation can be written in some of your wording. dont worry insh Allah u'll do good. cheers

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.

So lets start with the discussion here, but PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS ENTIRELY MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND REASONING WHY I PREFERRED AUSTRALIA OVER USA FOR RESIDENCY.

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 …

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.
