PLAB General Information


PLAB is an interesting journey, which all International Medical Graduates (IMG) who have qualified outside the European Union will have to undertake before they can start working in the UK National Health Service (NHS).

ABMA endeavours to make your journey as pleasurable as possible. We have a clear understanding of the challenges faced by IMGs before they start working in the UK. In addition to preparing you for the entire journey, our faculty will always remain available to offer you real time advice if you should face any kind of hurdle.

Why candidates take the PLAB Test?

All doctors must be registered and licensed with the GMC if they want to work as doctors in the UK. How doctors are registered and licensed depends, generally, on their nationality and where they qualified. Doctors who graduate outside the UK and the EEA are known as international medical graduates.

Prerequisites for PLAB

  • Graduation from medical school
  • English Language Proficiency(OET or IELTS)

Graduation from Medical School

If your primary medical qualification is from outside the UK or EEA, GMC needs to make sure it’s acceptable in the UK.

Check if your medical school is listed on the World Directory.

PLAB is the licencing exam for International Medical Graduates wishing to practice in the UK.

PLAB has two parts,

PLAB 1 and PLAB 2.

Once you’ve passed your PLAB 2 exam, you can get GMC registration to become eligible to work in the UK as a doctor.

What is PLAB P1?

  • The exam tests your ability to apply your knowledge for the care of patients. It doesn’t test how well you can remember and recite facts.
