aho, INTENTIONALLY I said.. :p :D
boyyy :D
Right, okay. So, now you're making fun of me. :unsure:
I'm joking. Don't take me seriously. :p

Anyways, I wanted to know what's it like in SIMS. Do you, generally, like everything - faculty, clinical exposure, facilities, studies in general?
Thank you.

Alright people, back on track.
How do you do the words? I usually have no trouble memorizing 100s in a week, but the MCAT words are just pissing me off. They don't even exist in the latest dictionaries. Amongst the first 100 words, there were about 30-40 words I was non-familiar with and they're all obsolete. Their meanings, pronunciation, synonyms -nothing etches in my mind. Any tips how to do it? (Considering I really ain't dumb :p )

Oliveme How is your preparation going? :)

My preparation is currently leading nowhere. I'm looking through books, trying to get my mind round where I should start. I've started with biology which is the lengthiest and there too much stuff that wasn't in A levels.
Yes, I've found that some words are not in the dictionary. So, what I do is looking them up on the internet and that usually gives you the meaning. Google the words that you can't find in the dictionary. :)

Which words? I can tell you the meanings

Ps, to all A level students who are finding it hard, dont use the net for a while, nothing out of the fsc books is coming so just concentrate on them, spend the 30 mins you spend on the net there...

KIPS wale teachers have a tareeqa to break down a word into lame phrases to make it easy to learn, but woh 800 lafzon k lie toh nahi ho sakta na? :p

The easy way. Go through that big, fat English KIPS book. Jot down the words you do not know and write down the meanings and revise atleast 5 times over the course of the week.
or remember them in context with the urdu words the sirs at KIPS tend to make you write down in class.

Just one thing. The books they've already given us, the four in a pack, are the main course; and there's another Supplementary Book series? :p
There is a 5th book in the pack, the supplementary one. I did get it last year and it turned out to be the most useful of the 5 books. And the words along with their synonyms are given at the back of the English book in the series.
For the words, what I did last year was to learn 10 to 20 of them every day. I cut out 800 small pieces of paper and wrote the word in front and the meaning at the back of the piece. It made learning those obsolete words much easier.

Then they probably didn't issue it this time, I think.
That sounds cruel :/
Anyway, one more thing. An example, for instance. I was doing Electronics and the syllabus focuses over knowing the gates and the working of the CRO. There's nothing pointing towards knowing transistors in detail, or acquainting ourselves with the details of the diodes wagaira. KIPS ki book as well as te Dogar's cover the whole Part-II book's chapter. Chor dun saara irrelevant content? :p

KIPS teachers are notorious for teaching out of syllabus -______-
Also, Dogar covers the whole book I believe. Not just UHS.

The KIPS books that I got last year covered the whole FSC syllabus and not only of UHS. So just leave the stuff that is not in the syllabus. And make sure your main books are the FSC ones.

Hello everyone...I am too much worried and tense.
I did not give mcat last year thought i prepared for it till august 1, 2012 and went to kips regularly. Then I got admission in LUMS and I priortized it over mcat. A year later i realized it was a mistake. So i decided to take mcat this year and aku test. I prepared for aku test ONLY in june and started MCAT preparation from 16 JUly 2013. I remeber most of the stuff since i gave tests last year of kips, and i have finished the sylabus today (first go), now I intend to revise and revise and appear for grand tests of kips and star. I am not going back to lums, but I am too much worried, I am frightened as I think TIME IS VERY LESS and nowadays i am panicing most of the time. Will I be able to do it ? Do I have ENOUGH time ? people started preparing months before i did :/
