ALL YOU NEED IS: SAMSON NOTES AND 1700 Qs !
This was my resolution after finishing today’s exam.
I wasted my time with OHCM really.. sad to realize that.
1- TIME FLIES ! ..i used to finish the Mocks in 2 hours.. i barely finished the exam in time because i re-read the questions to make sure
2- PROPER SHADING TAKES TIME ! ..You DO NOT have time to answer in the exam sheet then transfer your answers to the answer sheet.. answer directly on the answer sheet.. you may mark the questions you need to revise at the end on the exam sheet, but keep it short as you may not have time to revise
3- THE FIRST ANSWER THAT COMES TO MIND IS PROBABLY THE RIGHT ONE ! .. Don’t over doubt yourself
4- DON’T BE FOOLED BY LENGTHY SCENARIOS ! .. several questions have you unnecessary details just to throw you off then give a direct question. In lengthy questions, i read what was needed first then read the question from the start in order not to waste time if what was needed is obvious
5- DON’T SUBSCRIBE TO BMJ ONEXAMINATION ! .. questions are harder and it will depress you
6- AGAIN: if your time is short, you only need Samson notes and the 1700 Qs.. they are very sufficent and very similar to the exam (some questions were repeated almost word for word)
I would like to deeply thank Dr. Khalid Saifullah for his hard work, and i pray for his parents to have a speedy recovery.
And also Naseer Khan who was right in telling me to do as many questions as i can and do the 1700 Qs many times, and encouraging us with his optimism.. go read his blog as it was helpful.
Thank you everyone.. I wish you all the best of luck.

Where is the exam held? In our home country or U.K.?
When should one give ielts if they plan on giving plab just after graduation?
PLAB 1 is held in the U.K. and in a lot of other countries as well. Kindly check this post for more details.
If you plan on taking PLAB 1 soon after graduation, then it’s best to take IELTS roughly 6 months before graduation.
