INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19: Due to COVID-19, we have made changes to our mock dates to meet the current challenges. The new PLAB 2 dates will ensure that you spend as less time as possible in the UK. Most of our mock tests will now start 8-10 days before your exam, unlike before which was 14 days before your exam date. Please visit the PLAB part 2 mock section for more information.

We are currently running excellent PLAB part 2 classes which most people are finding very helpful and in fact the majority of people feel that it is even better than in-person courses.

This is my suggestion to you:

Attend our online PLAB part 2 course, practice in our center located in your home country and come to UK for mock. We have centres in the following cities: Lagos, Cairo, Lahore, Bangalore, Dubai, London and Manchester.

Coming soon: Khartoum, Sudan and Dhaka, Bangladesh.

When you come for your mock exams, I will ensure that I review your performance in your PLAB 2 mock tests including communication and interpersonal skills.

Please ensure that you are booked in the right mock tests according to your GMC exam to ensure that you do not miss your personal feedback from me. Personal feedback is crucial for your success in PLAB 2 exam.  Unfortunately, I cannot make personal arrangements due to tight schedule, so make every effort to be booked for your scheduled mock exams.

London centre update: 

For your own safety we will no longer be conducting PLAB 2 mock tests in London. The current London centre is unable to fulfil the government criteria of social distancing during the mock tests as the rooms are quite small. You will, however be able to practice on manikins in London once the government has allowed that.

London PLAB 2 classes will be conducted in London. We have the measures in place to conduct mocks online if the UK lockdown will not allow large gatherings by the 15th of June 2020.

If you have got any enquires, please do not hesitate to email us:

Keep well and I will see you soon.

Dr. Samson
