Firstly, if you make it this far, then congratulations! Because getting into a medical college is no less than a challenge, not only in Pakistan but all over the world too. And if you get selected in Bakhtawar Amin Medical and Dental College – (BAMDC) then you are definitely one of the hard workers who deserve that their talent is groomed by one of the best professionals of medical industry. By intention of preparing you for the future we would like to point out that life at a medical college is not easy, may it be any medical college. Even the most intelligent and hardworking people sometimes find themselves frustrated and tangled in all the work along with extra-curricular activities. So to give you a heads up and a few guidelines on how to deal with basic issues that students may face in a medical college are listed below:
The hardest thing to do at not just a medical college but at any university is managing time. If you don’t get to it in your first few days, you will have to face a lot of extra hardships later on. To avoid that, in the first few days at your college, take a note of how things work, what processes are followed and what goes where etc. Once you get the gist of it all, make a rough schedule. Compartmentalize your work. Assign time to each task and try to complete it in the assigned time. The more you keep on your schedule the easier things will get.
Next, you should get used to making a daily to-do list. All the homework, assignment, or any other task that you get, should go into that to-do list with a due date. Use applications to set reminders to help you complete your work before the due date. What is even better is that you don’t leave the tasks to the last minute. Procrastination will have to wait. Getting to your tasks as soon as possible will help save you from a lot of future trouble. Keeping a list of all the tasks with their due dates and following a schedule regularly will make sure that you never miss a deadline.
As stated above, University or College life differs a lot from school life. Here, only attending lectures may not be enough. It will be required of a person to follow a proper schedule and set aside time for regular catching-up on studies. Sometimes a person finds themselves in a condition where lectures are just not helping them learn, what they can do is turn to either a friend or a TA for guidance. They should never consider this useless, or something that they may over come on their own, asking for help will actually get you help in these situations. Ask an intelligent class fellow to sit with you and help you study or conduct group study sessions, they have shown to work wonders. But never think that you have to go through this alone. Learn from others, ask them to teach you, and teach them yourself too, which can help with retaining your knowledge.
Dr. Najeeb Lectures
In the off-chance that you find yourself in a situation described above, and none of the above mentioned methods work, or even if you don’t feel like trying out all of them just yet, you can always go to Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures for help. These are video lectures which are a great source for self-studying. Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures are the world’s most popular medical Lectures, covering all the topics of Gross Anatomy, Neuro-anatomy, Embryology, Histology, Physiology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Pharmacology, Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology. These lectures cover almost all the topics in the current medical curriculum of most medical colleges. They contain visualization of what you study in your books. The hand-drawn illustrations in these lectures make it very easy to grasp the concepts. Furthermore, one can get a lifetime access to these lectures and even download the app to avail them anytime, anywhere.
From the tough competition, rigorous studying, constant exams, and all that hard work, it is necessary for you to take some time out for yourself. Self-care is very important if you wish to succeed at anything in life. So to relax and take some time off from all the hard work, it is required that you ease your mind. Find a hobby or anything that would qualify as extracurricular and take out some time from your busy schedule for this. You need to reward yourself for your continuous hardships. Apart from that it will help you have a fresh mind when you go back to your work so maybe you could learn better or come up with more creative things (whatever is required).
Best of luck!
