PLAB Part 1

PLAB – Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board

PLAB EXAM OVERVIEW

The exam tests your ability to apply knowledge to care of patients. Questions relate to current best practice in the UK, and equipment routinely available in UK hospitals. The exam covers the common, important or acute conditions (those common in emergency departments) seen by trainees entering the second year of the Foundation Programme (F2), and the management of long-term conditions seen in primary care. It excludes the advanced duties of a general practitioner (GP).

Note: You can’t apply for PLAB 2 before receiving a pass result on the PLAB 1. Once you’ve passed both part 1 and 2, you can apply for registration with a licence to practise in the UK. Your application must be approved within two years of passing part 2 of the test. If you fail PLAB 1, you can book to take the exam again provided you still meet all the requirements. You can attempt the exam a maximum of four times.
