How to prepare (PLAB - PART 1)

The examination is testing your ability to apply knowledge to the care of patients rather than how well you can remember and recite facts. All the questions relate to current best practice, and you should answer them in relation to published evidence and not according to your local arrangements. Names of drugs are those contained in the most recent edition of the British National Formulary (BNF).Remember that you are being tested at the level of a doctor who has qualified and completed one year of clinical practice.

How to approach the OSCE (PLAB - PART 2)
PLAB

An actor, who has been provided with a detailed script beforehand, plays the patient. The examiner will observe you and will not intervene, except in very limited circumstances.

You have one minute before entering the station to read the instructions. You must clean your hands thoroughly using the alcohol gel outside the station at this point. Hygiene is an extremely important issue in NHS hospitals. You may be asked to examine a patient, take a history and give a diagnosis, or to carry out a practical procedure. The instructions also give basic information about the patient, such as name, age and major symptoms.

You will be given full and clear directions on the day about what you have to do. Each station lasts five minutes, and there will be one minute between stations. The stations will be numbered clearly and staff will be there to help you move from station to station. The Chief Invigilator (the senior examiner on the day) will observe the exam remotely through a camera system. Each station has two cameras installed to allow observation, reducing the need for observers to enter and sit in stations. The cameras do not record the exam and therefore cannot be used to review the exam afterwards. .
