We Can Show Students Other Options If They Don't Succeed in MBBS
The most sought after fields in Pakistan and India are medicine and engineering. Adopting any of both fields is considered as a visible indication of a successful future. The dogma that only medicine or engineering are right fields are instilled in students since their schooling period. Almost 80% of all Pakistani students (including MDCAT) study with an aim of becoming a doctor or an engineer one day. So, it can be rightly put here that the gauge of capability and intelligence depends upon the achievement of this aim. Every individual has different innate capacity and dexterity. Some of us are good at painting, writing, teaching, managing, marketing, business, banking, acting and many other innumerable skills. In Pakistan, students suffer immense pressure from parents to somehow or in any cost achieve to enter into medicine field. As Einstein said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” The question I have for you at this point of our journey together is, “What is your genius?”.This allegory comes from a genius himself. Einstein’s researches and work is being applied in educational institutes all over the world. To limit the faculty of mind to a certain field is similar to abase the inborn trait of discovery in human beings. It does a great deal of damage to one’s personality that stays for quite a long time. In accordance to Einstein’s quote, a fish belongs to water and there it is a pro, we can’t just consider it a failure, if it just can’t climb a tree. Same goes with humans; every human is born different and belongs to a different field. Not being able to enter into medicine field, does not conclude you as a failure.
The MDCAT students, who have an inclination to pursue their careers in scientific field, can surely never run out of options. Pakistan’s progression in scientific field is not less than the world.
