You are welcome drsher. After passing in SLE, if you're in Pakistan, it's easiest to get job by passing the interview conducted BY MOH delegate who come to Pakistan every 6 months or so. If you are living in Saudi Arabia then you will have to contact ministry of health directly.

Thankx for confirmation really appreciate,
One thing more I prepared 2 books for SLE ((Comprehensive review for SLE by Dr.Yahia & Oxford assess and progress Clinical Specialities)) what do you think study this 2 books are enough to pass through & get good scores? or...
No:2 .The process to appear for SLE already been mentiond on this website which is really helpfull ,2 days back I went through the process when i reached "schedule appointment" I bit confuse bcz there mentiond (Monday-Friday whole month ) a person can appear at any schedule date and time? before I was thinking SLE TEST will be held only twice or trice an year , please make me clear ont this. :)
No:3.
How long time the registration process will take 1/2/3 weeks? and do they need attested document from saudi consulate before appear exam ,or first clear exam and then i can go for attestation ? bcz I just need a license .
No:4 .
If I passed the SLE test will they abale to give me the license rightaway in my hands. Or... ? I hope you search me out abt these all...
and if you have any past papers or any preference abt SLE materials suggest me and send me .Thankx a lot

You are welcome :)
1. Yes these are enough to get at least pass marks, which is 45% for GP Exam.
2. You can choose any day available from the given calendar there, usually there are about 3-4 days in every week. You can select any date suitable for you and there are different times too, in morning and evening. The LIMIT to take the test is 3 times per year, from outside Saudi Arabia. If you are taking within Saudi Arabia after getting eligibility from MOH, then you will have only 3 attempts in total.
3. SLE is just an exam for MOH, if you clear it, you will get your registration by submitting your documents to DATAFLOW for verification and then MOH Saudia to get registration. That is a complete separate process. You dont need any document attestation for prometric exam outside Saudia.
4. If you clear the exam, you get the result sheet right away printed from the center at the same time.
For registration to MOH Saudia, you need to have job offer in hand. The result of prometric is valid for 2 years and when you have job offer the sponsor will assist you in getting your registration. E.G. If you get passed in interview by delegates from MOH Saudia, you will get registration when you reach Saudia after they give you work visa. Likewise, if you have Job offer from private hospital in Saudia they will give you visa and then assist you get registration after you reach Saudi Arabia.
I hope you got my points.

There are no past papers available for SLE. They preparation material is SLE Review book by Dr Harun, Oxford Medicine handbook and USMLE Step 2 prep books

Thats for those who are applying from within Saudi Arabia, They have to take eligibility from MOH before applying for exam.
If you are applying from outside Saudi Arabia, you will have to select the option as described in step 3.
"3.Select SAUDI COMMISSION FOR HEALTH SPECIALITIES (NON-ELIG) in Program name list"

Well it depends on the employer if he takes you without any experience. But usually in Saudi Arabia 2 years of experience is required after housejob to successfully have a job in government or private sector. SLE is valid for 2 years and if job is not found you will have to appear again for exam.

No, you will take SLE for Medicine speciality (general) in order to be able to work as Medical specialist in KSA. But you need to have 2-3 years experience post masters if you want specialist seat.
