About The PLAB Examination

What is the PLAB Exam?

What is the PLAB Exam?
The Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) exam is an assessment for doctors who have qualified overseas and wish to practice medicine in the United Kingdom.

It is designed to ensure that these international medical graduates have the necessary knowledge and skills to practice safely and effectively within the UK's healthcare system.

There are two parts to this PLAB Exam - PLAB 1 and PLAB 2. You need to pass both parts to get the license to practise as a doctor in the UK.
 

PLAB Exam Eligibility Criteria

The PLAB Exam is mandatory for medical practitioners who want to practise in the UK. To qualify for the PLAB Exam, the following criteria must be met:
The medical graduate’s primary qualifications must be recognised by an institution listed in the World Health Organization Directory of Medical Schools.

Candidates are required to have taken the IELTS exam and achieved a minimum overall score of 7, with a minimum score of 7.0 in each of the four language modules.

The candidates must have completed a minimum of 12 months of postgraduate clinical experience at a teaching hospital.
 

Procedure for PLAB

English Proficiency
Candidates are required to demonstrate proficiency in English by taking an approved English language test, such as IELTS, and achieving the required scores.

Complete EPIC Verification
Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) Electronic Portfolio of International Credentials (EPIC) verification may be necessary to authenticate your primary medical qualification.

Take PLAB 1
After scoring the desired marks in IELTS, international medical graduates must pass PLAB 1, a written examination consisting of multiple-choice questions that assess their medical knowledge.

Take PLAB 2
After clearing PLAB 1 and completing EPIC Verification, candidates need to pass PLAB 2, which is an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) assessing clinical and communication skills in various scenarios.

Apply for GMC Registration
Once both PLAB exams are successfully completed, candidates can apply to the General Medical Council (GMC) for registration, allowing them to practice medicine in the UK, subject to meeting other requirements.
 

Exam Format

PLAB 1

PLAB 1 is a written examination consisting of 180 multiple-choice questions that must be completed within a three-hour time frame. Each question begins with a brief scenario, followed by a corresponding query. Your task is to select the correct answer from the five options provided.

PLAB 2

PLAB 2 is an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) comprising 16 scenarios, with each scenario lasting for eight minutes. The objective is to replicate real-life situations, such as simulated consultations. Part 2 assessments are conducted year-round at clinical assessment centres.
