Course details

The Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) test is the main route where International Medical Graduates (IMGs) demonstrate their necessary skills and knowledge to practice medicine in UK. The PLAB is a computer-based examination consisting of 200 Single Best Answer (SBA) questions. An IMG must first pass the PLAB before he can apply for registration with a license to practice in UK.

  It is designed to test your ability to practice medicine safely in a UK hospital. The level is set at the knowledge and skills relating to conditions commonly seen by trainees entering the second year of the Foundation Programme, the management of life-threatening situations and rarer, but important, medical problems. This means that UK-trained doctors and international medical graduates (IMGs) are expected to have the same level of knowledge and skills at this stage of their career.
