I passed my PLAB 2 exam in February 2017. Based on my experience, I wrote this article to guide others.
When to Reach:
Reach the GMC building 15-30 minutes before time. It would be ideal if you’ve seen the GMC building before your exam day.
What to Bring With You:
- Your ID document (passport).
- Confirmatory email of your exam invitation.
Follow the dress code that is mentioned on the GMC website. Dress formally. Wear half-sleeves or role up your sleeves. Elbows should be visible. No wrist watches, bracelets, rings or anything else below the elbow is allowed. You’re not allowed to wear a tie.
Inside the Hall:
You will not be allowed to take anything with you inside the examination hall. This includes stationary and medical equipment.
You will be provided with water and biscuits before the exam and during rest stations.
You will also be provided with a locker to keep your stuff in. This locker is big enough to store your jacket, your notebooks and a backpack.
Keeping yourself calm on the exam day is the most important thing. Stay calm and you’ll pass this exam easily.
