PLAB Part 1 revision

The Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) Part 1 exam is a 200 question Single Best Answer (SBA) paper designed to assess your ability to practice medicine safely in UK hospitals.

Our question bank reflects the changes made to the exam in 2012 and only contains SBA questions. We've also recently added many professional values, ethical and legal questions following the GMC's changes in 2016. Many of our questions include images, ECGs and x-rays.

Other key features include:

  • Compare your performance to other candidates who are about to sit the PLAB Part 1. How are you doing compared to other candidates? Are you ready to sit the exam?
  • Questions can be answered in revision mode or test mode, which allows you to create timed tests and mock exams
  • Extensive teaching notes accompany each question. These build to form a reference library you can access at any time
  • Questions are constantly reviewed to ensure they are up-to-date and consistent with current guidelines and clinical practice
  • As you progress through the questions a series of key points are stored. These high-yield facts are invaluable for last minute revision
