The Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) test is an assessment conducted by the General Medical Council (GMC) in the United Kingdom. It is designed to assess the knowledge and skills of international medical graduates who wish to practise medicine in the UK.


The PLAB test consists of two parts:


PLAB Part 1: This is a multiple choice examination that assesses the candidate’s knowledge and understanding of medical sciences and clinical practice. The exam covers various topics such as anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology and clinical management. The PLAB Part 1 exam can be taken in many countries around the world.


PLAB Part 2: This is a practical examination that assesses the candidate’s clinical skills and ability to apply medical knowledge in a simulated clinical setting. It includes objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) and simulated patient encounters. The PLAB Part 2 exam is conducted in the United Kingdom at GMC-approved centres.


After successfully completing both parts of the PLAB test, candidates are eligible to apply for provisional registration with the GMC. However, it’s important to note that provisional registration alone does not grant the right to work as a doctor in the UK. Candidates must also secure a job offer in a UK healthcare setting and satisfy other requirements set by the GMC to obtain full registration and a licence to practise medicine in the UK.


The PLAB test is an important step for international medical graduates who aspire to work in the UK healthcare system. It assesses their medical knowledge, clinical skills and ability to practise safely and effectively.
