PLAB Exam Revision

Before you can practice in the UK you must first pass The Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) exam. The PLAB is a computer-based written exam consisting of 200 single best answer (SBA) questions.  

In recent years the PLAB exam has moved away from testing factual recall and focused on clinical problem solving across a number of specialties. BMJ OnExamination’s PLAB revision resource contains questions based on themes from previous exams and covers the entire course syllabus to ensure that you get the most from your revision.

Our PLAB revision resource offers you a bank of over 3,150 revision questions which cover the PLAB exam style to give you the closest revision experience possible.  Our extensive bank of PLAB questions include the exam format Single Best Answer questions (SBAs) and a bank of Extended Matching Questions (EMQs) for additional learning.

Very thorough and covers all aspects of the written exam

I completed my plab 2010. I used onexamination question bank as complementary method to boost my revision. I must agree it proved successful. I would recommend anyone to do onexamination question repeatedly and read the explanations. Very effective resource for PLAB.
