The students have to read the scenario and select the appropriate answer for the given question from the five options. A time period of three hours is allowed for the test.

The scenarios and questions are based on the practices followed and medical equipment used in the UK, and they aim to test how well a person can take care of patients.

Where can the PLAB part 2 test be taken?

Which resources can be used to prepare for the tests?

To prepare for the tests, GMC provides the following resources:

  • The blueprint for the PLAB tests which is an overall guide for the examination.
  • The Foundational Programme Curriculum which is the framework for the first two years’ educational progress and professional development after graduation.
  • Guidance and interactive tools such as Good Medical Practice.
What is the blueprint for the PLAB tests?

The blueprint for PLAB acts as a guide for the candidates, telling them what things are covered in the tests. It describes the knowledge, skills and behaviour that are expected by the authorities at the time of the test and after that.

The blueprint has two sections. First is knowledge which includes the conditions and presentations to be tested. These conditions and presentations match the real world scenarios faced by doctors in their second year of the Foundation Programme. The second section is the domain section that includes the guidance for the skills, behaviour and professional value that are expected from doctors practising in the UK.

How does the blueprint help the candidates sitting for the tests?

With the help of the blueprint, the candidates can learn about the tests’ core guidance, Good medical practices. The blueprint covers all the four domains that lay out Good medical practices’ principles to be followed by the candidates. It also covers the questions and scenarios that a candidate might expect in part 1 and part 2 of the tests.
