The course with the highest pass rate: 98%
New manikins accessible to everyone.

Welcome to PLAB 2 section

Ours is the only centre where you will be able to do things for real e.g be able to draw blood, listen to fetal heart sounds in antenatal examinations, breast manikins exactly like the GMC one, etc.


We have to comply with current UK government guidance on social distancing and safe workplaces, so the number of candidates we can allow to practice at the same time is lower than usual. You will now need to book a manikin and/or examination rooms to practice. Your safety is our priority.

But you will have full access to all the manikins and examination equipment. We have new and exact match mannikins like in the GMC which will allow you to familiarise yourself with all the equipment you might meet in the exam.

We are proud to say we are the leading PLAB part 1 and 2 providers in the UK with 90% of the candidates sitting for the PLAB 2 exam attending our course. You will definitely have an advantage over anyone who has not attended our PLAB 2 course.

The New PLAB 2

Our PLAB 2 pass rate for candidates attending courses at Samson Courses is 98% on the first attempt.

The classes are taken by myself and doctors who have PLAB and have NHS experience. We have the right mix of experience and enthusiasm to ensure that our students have the knowledge as well as the zeal to appear in the exam with confidence.

The academy is equipped with excellent manikins which are available to the students to practice without any restrictions.

Mock Test:

Our PLAB  2 mock tests are complementary to the course, which means you do not have to pay to take a PLAB part 2 mock test. The mocks can only be booked as per your GMC exam date as scheduled on our website. We will need to see your GMC exam date before booking your mocks. We pride ourselves on the quality of mocks that we provide. The mocks are as close to the real exam and our simulators are fantastic actors. We use English role players to help you familiarise yourself with English accents. Students are graded as per the GMC standard.

We have now included more telephone conversations in our PLAB 2 mock exams to cater for the new social distancing PLAB 2.

The mock is followed by detailed feedback where we demonstrate the stations and give individual feedback for candidates to identify areas of further development and improvement. You will receive your results in your personal account.

Our team of examiners provides detailed feedback as well as encourages the candidates to do better with every mock and prepares them to take on the real exam with confidence.

I would advise you to attend the course at least 2 months prior to your PLAB 2 exam to ensure that you have enough time to practise!

High Fidelity Mannikin:

SIMMAN (High fidelity manikin) is available for practice at SAMSON COURSES at all times. All our candidates are provided with new GMC SIMMAN scenarios. You can have access to this manikin at any time.
