Whats up people!? I haven't posted in a long time. As promised, I am writing a brief review on Ayub Medical College.

Ayub Medical College in Abottabad which is about a 2 and 1/2 hour drive from Islamabad/Rawalpindi. The city is very very very boring. Although they have facilities like cable tv, dsl, some decent/good resturants like Red Onion, AFC <KFC rip-off>, Usmania and ehhh...... I think thats it. oh yeah they have a pretty good chinese place called Red Dragon (Some asian people run it, i think thats why its good.) Other than that we have mess food, and a couple of student type resturants across the school.

The campus is very big. It is clean. Except for the attached teaching hospital called the Complex and the city which are not clean. They have huge sports ground with a basketball court. The school comes right at the end of Abottabad. The view is very beautiful from the campus as you see the close by mountains. Inshallah I will post pictures soon.

First year classes start from 8 in the morning to 2 pm. Monday thru Saturday. Sundays are off. They use powerpoints for lectures, which is pretty cool. But some teachers dont know how to use it and just teach using the whiteboard or they'll have one or two slides with the keypoints and they'll just talk about it. As is everywhere the quality of lectures vary depending on the teacher. In 1st Year,we have three main subjects; Physiology, Biochemistry, and Anatomy (which includes Histology, Emryology, and General Anatomy. All these classes also have 2 hour practical classes once a week in which experiments are done.

In Ayub Medical College, fooling happens alot. And I mean ALOT. For all of you who don't know what fooling is, its basically when bored seniors make first year students do weird/dumb and often cruel stuff. It can be from saluting girls in your class to making weird noises. However we will talk about fooling in its own thread.
Iam living in the hostel, so stories about college life, fooling, and random things will be coming soon.
Inshallah Pictures coming soooooooooon, with more info.

Questions/Comments welcome.

UltraSpy: Hey, I was looking into this place, seems pretty nice...Abbottabad seems like a nice place, like the weather and stuff. But like you said, its a boring place.

How bad is the boredom? Would you give up the good weather, for a school in Lahore?

hey ultraspy, thanks for the great info about the college. Ayub sounds really nice and looks very pretty! i think you're the 1st member at Ayub(feel free to invite some of your friends to the forum!)

i'd like to agree with rehan and say that usmania rocks...i don't know about this whole red onion business though...that seems a bit sketch. from what i've heard it's pretty disgusting...

i'm just waiting for them to open chipotle in Pakistan#yes

Sorry for not replying sooner. My bad.:ashamed:
how are the students there? and are there alot of foreigners or no?
Yes we have foriegners. Guys and Girls. Whatever floats your boat. There are people from Canada, England, U.S. and we also have a good amount of Arabians from Jordan and Yemen. Also I think someone told me we had a Norwegian girl. But I don't know. Usually all the foriegners hang out together so.......i dont know where iam goin with this.

The students here are pretty nice. Even the seniors who mess with you A LOT but somehow become very nice to each other. Almost everyone knows one another. and if your a foreigner EVERYONE will know you. They will ask you very weird questions. Very very very wierd questions. Let me say one thing, (in the nicest way possible) these guys are CORNBALLS. Sexually frustrated CORNBALLS. hahah. But they're cool people once you get to know them. Sorry If I offended anyone. Lemme say one thing, the people of NWFP are the nicest people in Pakistan. Trust me I know. I live in Rawalpindi, and all the jerks live here as well. (Does that cornball comment make me a jerk too?#confused) If you know any thing about Pakistan you would what province is known for its hospitality.


its a public school, isnt it? where is the hostel located? and the hospital?

Yes, Ayub is a Government owened medical school. It was affiliated with Hazara University but now it is, along with all the NWFP Govt. Medical Colleges is now affiliated with KHYBER MEDICAL UNIVERSITY.

Hostels are located right behind the campus. There are four buildings. and behind them is a small shop, a mosque, and a small tea shop. Girls hostel is on the other side, almost behind the hospital.

The hospital is right next to the campus. Its called uhhhh. LOL i dont know what its real/actual name is. I'll check and let you know. However, everyone calls its the "COMPLEX"


How bad is the boredom? Would you give up the good weather, for a school in Lahore?
It does get pretty boring. But once you get used to it, its not that bad. Boredom depends on the person. How would you define boredom?

Weather is very good. Thats a tough question about switching to a college in lahore. I don't know. Seriously Iam in the first year. I dont know shit.


Once again, sorry for not posting pics. I will post pictures soon. I promise. :happy:

UltraSpy:

Is it true at Ayub Medical College students get 2 months off in the winter and 1 month off in the summer?

I read it somewhere, but three months off a year in a medschool seems like alot.

Yes we do get one month in the summer and about months in the winter. But now that we will be with KMU, they are making the same schedule for testing and holidays as Khyber. So we will have the same vacations and same testing dates. So that means longer summer breaks and shorter winter break.

Some students dissectin' (Thats a real dead body.) No Joke.


Some Facts:

Every year we get three new bodies, that are torn apart through out the year.

We do whatever we want in the boys hostel. No regulations at ALL. Come back two in the morning or five in the morning. Bring guests. Put TV's, microwaves, frideges, computres, NO PROBLEM. And if your lucky you can even have cable.

Girls aren't so lucky. They can't get out of the hostel after 3 p.m. Thats true. Except for when they have wards.

More Pictures comin' up. Any questions/comments are welcome.

UltraSpy, thanks for the great pictures.
Question, I want to apply to Ayub Medical College, do I have to fill out a different application for Ayub MC because its in NWFP? or can I put Ayub MC on my selection for the punjab govt application.

For foreign students you fill one application for the entire pakistan. For example I chose schools from Punjab and NWFP both.
