Most of the topics including all the difficult topics will be taught by Dr Swamy who has 17 years of experience in teaching for

the PLAB.  We do have other good teachers to teach the remaining topics. Some of the teachers are working in the hospitals and

some are recently passed the PLAB exam who can share their exam experience which is very essential to understand the exam.

 

 

Advise on when to do the course.

 

We advise everyone to attend the live course or online course at least 10 to 12 weeks prior to the exam so that you will have enough time to revise and practice everything after the course.

If you cannot come to UK about 10 to 12 weeks before your exam to attend the live course, you can attend the online course first from your home country about 10 to 12 weeks before your exam and come to UK about 4 weeks before your exam and re-attend the live class for free of charge if you wish and also practice in our centre in Manchester.

 

Manikin practice:

We have all the manikins including Simman for you to practice in our centre. We are open all 7 days of the week. You can practice on the manikins any day and anytime between 9am till 8pm as you wish. There is no time restriction on manikin practice.

We advise you to come to our Manchester centre at least 4 to 6 weeks before your exam to practice on the manikins and to do group practice for other stations like examinations and history and counselling.

We have a very large building for you to practice. You will never feel overcrowded.

 

Mock tests:

This will be held at Manchester centre.

Since GMC keeps 15 stations in the PLAB 2 exam we keep 14 to 15 stations in the mock tests simulating the real exam. We offer 3 mock tests of 14 or 15 stations free with the course fee.

We conduct 3 to 4 days of mock tests every week.  We will email you the mock test days about 2 weeks prior to your exam and you need to choose the 3 days when you wish to take the mock tests. We advise you to take the mock tests about 10 days near to your exam. While booking the mock tests we advise you to keep one or two days of gap between each mock tests.

Mock tests will be conducted similar to the GMC exam where the candidates will be rotating in different stations. There will be mock examiners inside each cubicle to assess your performance. If we do not get enough mock test examiners to come to the centre because of covid pandemic problem then the examiners will be assessing you online (this means examiner will be at their home but they will be visible online in the computer inside the cubicle).

Mock tests will be conducted in different batches each day.  Duration of each batch will be about two and a half hours. You will be given one and half minute to read the question and eight minutes to perform the task similar to the GMC exam. We will email the time of your mock test one day before your mock test.

 

Mock test feedback:

There will be feedback after the mock test by the mock test examiners. Feedback will be in the evening of the same day of the mock tests for all the doctors who took the mock test on that day. Timing for the feedback usually is 5pm till about 8pm. We will tell you about the feedback time on the mock test day. During the feedback examiners will tell you what has to be done in the stations as well as they point out your mistakes. During the feedback you will get your individual feedback as well as you will learn the mistake done by other doctors which will immensely hep you to understand the real exam and not to do those mistakes in the exam.

 

Online mock test:

We will conduct mock tests online for those doctors who cannot attend the mock test in our centre.

We will keep 15 stations in the mock test. Candidate will take the mock test at their own home and the mock test examiner will also be at their home. Mock test will be for two and half hour duration. There will be feedback for the mock test in the same evening by about 5pm till about 8pm. Feedback also will be online. We offer 3 mock test free with the course fee.

All the 3 mock tests have to be taken for the first attempt of the real exam. Mock tests cannot be carried forward for the subsequent attempts of the exam.  If you wish to retake the mock tests for the subsequent attempts of the exam you will have to pay for them.
