About the exam

PLAB 2 is an objective structured clinical exam (OSCE). It’s made up of 18 scenarios, each lasting eight minutes and aims to reflect real life settings including a mock consultation or an acute ward. The exam covers everything a UK trained doctor might expect to see on the first day of Foundation Year Two. It tests your ability to apply knowledge to the care of patients, not how well you can remember and recite facts.

I went to attend the PLAB 2 course. Faculty members are hands on. I think the most important part in any examination is that a student gets to be evaluated. I was able to develop my strengths and learn from my mistakes. And that is what Bromley gave us. The 2-day course was intense but it was what we needed for the exam should be intense. These mocks were coupled by free online videos that I could learn from for 1 month. The facility is great as well. To top it up, the actors are so great as well there was no room for being shy!

Very good format,encouraging staff members. Clear learning objectives. NO SCRIPTS/memorisation, just encouraging us to develop our technique.

Well organised course. It drew attention to what I needed to work on and most efficient way to tackle each station
