About the exam
The Professional and Linguistic Assessment Board (PLAB) is required for international medical graduates to practice within the UK, and the PLAB 1 exam consists of 180 multiple choice questions (MCQs). These aim to test a candidate’s applied clinical knowledge equivalent to that of a UK foundation year trainee, and are all clinical scenarios followed by 5 options with only one correct answer. There is no negative marking.
You have only 60 seconds to answer each question. Our online course allows you to follow this format, and will give you the confidence to face this pressure.
