    Introduction :INFORMATION REGARDING PLAB


    (please refer to Plab official site for any updates)


    In order to undergo postgraduate medical training in the United Kingdom, a person has to obtain a limited registration with the General Medical Council (GMC) of UK. For obtaining this limited registration one has to pass the Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) Test conducted by GMC. Passing PLAB test allows a person to start the postgraduate training at the level of a Senior House Officer (SHO) in a UK hospital.

    If you are interested in MRCP, MRCS, FRCS, MRCOG, etc, and want to be trained in UK for these exams, than this is the test for you.

    PLAB Test
    The test has two parts:

    -Part 1 is a written paper-pencil exam based on Extended Matching Question (EMQ) system not very different from the MCQ system. There is no scoring system. You may either pass or fail the test.

    -Part 2 is an assessment of clinical skills of an individual called Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). One can only appear in part 2, when he/she has passed part 1. There is no scoring system. You may either pass or fail the test.

    Eligibility Requirements for PLAB Part 1
    There are two requirements for appearing in part 1:

    -A person must be a medical graduate, in possession of a basic medical degree like MBBS or equivalent. Medical students are not eligible to take PLAB.
    -One must have passed the IELTS test with the required score set by GMC. (See below)
    -Though not a requirement to appear in part 1, a candidate should have at least 12 months of postgraduate clinical experience (like one year of house job) in a teaching hospital in his/her country to work as an SHO in UK. Otherwise the person after passing both parts of PLAB must first obtain this 12 months experience in UK, and finding a house job in UK is indeed very difficult. Therefore you are strongly advised to complete your one-year house job before appearing in part 2.

    Eligibility Requirements for PLAB Part 2
    Passing part 1 is the only requirement for appearing in part 2. One must take part 2 within 2 years of passing part 1, otherwise he/she will have to take part 1 again.

    IELTS
    International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test is a test of English language conducted by the British Council all over the world. You can apply for the test and appear in the test in your local British Council office. The fee for the test is approximately Rs. 5000. The test has 4 parts or bands, listening, reading, writing and speaking. Each band has a maximum score of 9. There is also an overall band score (maximum 9), which is the average of the 4 individual band scores.
    To be eligible to appear in PLAB ......
