FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PLAB 2
PLAB 2 is the second component of the PLAB exam run by the GMC. It is a OSCE based exam made up of 16 scenarios and takes place at the GMC Assessment centres in Manchester in the UK.
On the day when you arrive at the GMC building, reception will direct you to the assessment centre. Your ID will be checked and a locker will be provided to keep all your personal belongings. You will be provided with a badge that you must wear so that the examiner can easily identify you. For each of the 16 scenarios you will be given 90 seconds to understand the scenario before commencing your 8 minutes for each task. At 6 minutes you will be given a 2 minute warning. There are 2 rest stations included and during this time you can have a glass of water or just rest. It is a circuit system and at the end of the exam you will be escorted out of the exam.
PLAB 2 costs £879 per sitting, there is a discounted price for the first 2 sittings if you are a UK refugee doctor.
You can book PLAB 2 only after passing PLAB 1. If you have passed PLAB 1 within the past 3 years you will be able to book your PLAB 2 exam in the ‘My Tests’ section on GMC online.
You will be provided with everything you need for the exam. You will only need to bring your proof of identification documents.
You will be expected to dress smartly as you would do if you were a doctor working in a UK hospital setting or other clinical setting. This would mean being bare below the elbows with no watches, bracelets etc. For males a collared short sleeved shirt with no tie or a full sleeve shirt rolled up past the elbows with no tie, with trousers and smart shoes. No jeans, leggings or casual wear will be allowed. For females similarly, no casual wear is allowed- you may wear smart dresses, trousers, skirts etc.
PLAB 2 is an OSCE based exam and so it is important to watch yourself consult. It is worth reading the PLAB blueprint, UK foundation programme curriculum and the GMC Good Medical Practice guidelines. It is not necessary to join an academy to pass PLAB 2, but courses may help you practice scenarios and feedback on how to improve in certain areas e.g. interpersonal skills.
The GMC will review each case separately and will only offer a cancellation or refund in exceptional circumstances. If you wish to cancel or refund it is best to contact the GMC directly for further advice.
