Unfortunately, the world has changed, the people have changed; but, we are living in the same age with the same people - Pakistani. Our thoughts and perceptions especially of our parents when his son or daughter is born, "Ye Mera Laal Doctor Bny Ga." Don't every student who struggles for MCAT becomes a doctor. Allah has the best plan for you, don't you believe? Ok right, jump to the MMG field where I wrote the story of my elder brother. Read it, then believe in it!

How I forget you guys, I know what happened to your MCAT scores, don't scared. It's time to get rid of the saying of our society, "Log Kya Kahain Gy." What I say to you, follow your passion. Believe me! It will save your life. Don't you know what does Iqbal says? "Apny Mann Main Doob Ky Paa Ja Sarege Zindagi".  It means you should discover your passion. You should discover why you were born.
The biggest problem of our education system is it doesn't define the word passion. I am going to define passion in my own wording. Are you excited to listen?

"The passion is the work that you can do for 12 hours, the work you can do for 12 hours without getting tired, the work you can do without getting worried about money, the work when you do you come out of space and time, the work when you do you don't get bored, the work when you do you want to do it more and more."

By the way, I have mentioned here the top fields that a pre-medical student can choose if he is not lucky in MCAT.

1. DVM (Veterinary Doctor)

In our society, it is called "Dangar Doctor", believe me, the so called label is really strange. Nowadays, most DVM doctors are earning more than an MBBS doctor. It is one of the best options for the boys who haven't made to MBBS and BDS.

If you have got great marks in F.Sc, you can get admission in a popular university like University of Veterinary & Animal Sciences its merit goes higher every year. Now, its admission is based on MCAT.
