Why I chose MBBS from AMC-NUST


As every female child in their childhood has dreamt of becoming a ‘school teacher’, I was all set to be Ustani Gee also. Anyone use to ask k beta bare ho k kia bano ge? I will always reply with a smile that I will become a teacher. :)

My mum and dad had a dream of making me a doctor as I’m their eldest child. So on every birthday card believe me after my 8th class, I used to get wished as “Dear Doctor Nayyab”.

I started to see this wish of my parents as mine too. Soon I passed my O’levels and then HSC, the ultimate decision of my life stood before me….which university to apply to? – The Agha Khan University, Army Medical College NUST, Shifa University or to appear in PMC??

My father was from a very mediocre background…He worked very hard to provide his children with the best education even if he was to sacrifice over his food. Why didn’t I go for any private university especially Agha Khan because although it was a world recognized university but the humongous amount of fee required was stunning.  I didn’t expect my parents to spend uncountable lakhs on me for 5 years of medicine, how can I forget that I have three more siblings who they are to look after?? I would suggest to everyone that it may be your dream to enter AKU but do think about your parents first as the fees would be a great burden on them…Same story goes for Shifa or any other private medical colleges as they ask for hideous amount of fees to be paid. Eventually I simply crossed out the option of private medical colleges of my list at least…..

Next the PMC entry test… to be really honest my parents weren’t ready to send me off to any other city in hostel without knowing that what will happen with me….. Plus the entrance test was to be taken after the Nust 1st merit list was out and my merit number was very much expected to be selected if not on open merit then on paying cadet seats, reserved for army officer children….So I didn’t think about giving the PMC test. I’m not being proud just telling you the truth.

National University Of Science and Technology was left on my list and I was ready to face my fate. I gave my medical entrance test on 21st June, just 10 days after my HSC last practical exam. I have already shared my story of entry exam in my post: ‘Making into AMC –a piece of cake??’

I got an appropriate merit number to get admission into Army Medical College as a Nustian Cadet… Why I chose MBBS because although dentists make loads of money but I thought that eventually there would be an end to their work sooner or later… Like I remember when I was a kid, no one actually bothered about how your teeth even looked like. Just few years of increase in beauty awareness, both genders have increased the trend of braces as sign of fashion I assume. In my opinion, it’s boring to see inside some mouth and smell their unpleasant breaths with a beaming smile of yours… Dentists no offence guys :P

Why AMC??? Because the uniform sarahi for females looked fabulous and elegant to me from childhood, I never thought that I would wear it one day. The yearly fee for Paying cadet (PC), Additional selected cadets (ASC) and Nustians (NC) are pretty economical for every family belonging to any financial status. The fee for Nust Foreign Student is a little higher but you are called a NFC- a valid stamp to show off your English :p

I’m not a hostelite myself so can’t say much about it but you can get a normal standard room with a cooperating roommate in small amount of money :P

Other facilities like buses, library, canteen, computer lab, sports ground you get them as bonus in AMC not so lenient environment :D

In a nutshell, I opted for Amc for high standard of education with future assurance of job security and adequate training to face the proposed competition in field of medicine. The fee is nominal with a study span of exact 5 years are maintained. In contrast to this private and government institutes the whole degree may get delayed many months.

In my last post of author hunt 2011, I would like to wish Best of Luck to everyone… Just that whatever happens don’t lose faith in Allah – He always decide best for you……

Never forget to smile as no matter how hard our survival becomes we should not forget to live ever :)

Stay Blessed Everyone – Always!

      PC is paying cadets and Asc is additional selected cadets but the system is going to be changed soon and these categories may not apply any more
