In the right-hand corner, it will start zipping. Be patient as it may time 5/10 minutes. Then it will start downloading as a ZIP file which can be extracted using WinZip or WinRAR and then voila you have all the folders. Good Luck!

  1. Fantastic ! The whole blog is a GOLD MINE. InshaAllah it will remain active always. Good Job Dr Naseer. May Allah reward you abundantly.

    1. This blog and specially this post could not have been possible without help from other people. I could not have done this alone. So thank you to everyone else who contributed! 🙂

  2. DR.NASEER KHAN and all of the PLAB 1 and PLAB 2 Passed Seniors You guys are of great help, I am a student of Dow university 2nd year MBBS and want to know all about PLAB its all brilliantly present on this site.
    Bravo efforts !

    Regards,
    Laila-Tul-Qadar

  3. Thank you so much Dr Naseer for this very helpful website and also for the seminar held at PMA house 🙂

  4. Hello sir…I m in final year now..and I have 1 more year to complete my internship in 2018..so the house job u meant was after internship ?
    From where do I get the 6000 questions that you mentioned in your plab experience? (Samsons notes…) Any particular link?

    1. You should email the GMC to ask if your internship will be accepted. 🙂

      In “My PLAB 1 Experience” I mentioned exactly which 6,000 questions I practiced and in “Studying for PLAB 1”, I mentioned where to find them. 🙂

      Samson’s Notes can be found in the file section of the PLAB Facebook group. I mentioned this as well in “Studying for PLAB 1”. 🙂

  5. thank you so much, I’m new to PLAB, so you mean we study for PLAB as questions not books like kaplan for step1 or 2 cause I only see questions in those files

  6. Hello
    This is probably a silly question but anyway.
    What is the difference in swami 1700 and 1700 by dr Khalid?
    Are subject wise by dr khalid are better or are they same?
    Thanks

    1. 1700 by Dr. Khalid have answered explained by Dr. Khalid. 1700 by Dr. Swammy do not have their answers explained.

      Sush Notes are basically 1700 questions with answers explained by Sush.

      I hope this makes sense.

      When I took the exam, these explanations were not available and since 150 plus questions were repeated, explanations were not needed. I would highly advise against spending too much time on explanations.

  7. HI DR KHAN THAT S A GREAT EXPÉRIENCE YOU ARE CHARING WITH US.I JUST LIKED TO ASK YOU PLEASE HOW MUCH DOES THE PREPARATION OF BOTH EXAMS NEED.I M NEW IN UK AND I HAVE STUDIED MY MEDECINE IN FRENCH LUNGUAGE .DO I NEED TO COM BAC TO ALL THE LESSONS IN ENGLICHE OR JUST DOING QUESTIONS .PLEASE HOW MUCH TIME I NEED.AND THE REAL PLAB IT PASS TWICE A YEAR OR HOW MANY IN THE END CAN YOU PLEASE ADVICE ME HOW TO PREPARE.TRATMENT QUESTION ARE ASKED IN PLABE 2 OR NOW.

    1. 1. 2-4 months.
      2. It depends on your command of the subjects.
      3. Same as the first question.
      4. I don’t understand this question.
      5. Check my posts about studying for PLAB 1 and PLAB 2.

    1. I have made this website to guide junior doctors who wish to work in the UK. I understand that people can have queries or confusions after going through the website. It would be difficult for me to meet people directly. But if you have any questions, you can always post them here. Good luck! 🙂

  8. thank you for your answers dr .i wont to know in plab 2 if questions about traitement are asked .best regards

  9. Thankyou so much for the notes. I want to ask that can you please upload samson 7 mocks here as well as I don’t have access to Facebook. And these questions 1700 aren’t they too old now? Do we have any new notes and questions about ethics as well as plab 1 was changed?

    1. I can not upload any mocks as they are owned by the academies. But you can still find them on Facebook groups. Being active on Facebook is very important for the UK journey to stay updated. Everything I know today is from Facebook. And you can solve absolutely any mocks for PLAB 1. You don’t have to rely on any particular mocks.

      1. Thankyou for your response, wherecan we find eithics questions? And new mocks

  10. Hello,Dr.Naseer hope you are doing well.I have a question.Currently I’m a medical student in Ukraine.Since I’m an Indian citizen Can I take my PLAB exams after finishing my medice in Ukraine or should I go back to India and write MCI screening test before completing my PLAB

    My query is that I don’t have any near dates for applying plab1 so can I appear exam within UK, if so what’s the procedure and will be undue favour if u would help me the expense that I would have to enroll and duration of stay just for the exam.

  15. Dear Dr Naseer,

    1. Oh! Wow! Congratulations! 😃 If you would like to write about your experience, I’ll happily share it on my website. You can email it to me at naseerzk@yahoo.com. All the best for the future! 😊

  16. Is it safe to give an attemp For plab1 before the time of housejob,I mean just after completing final year?

      1. Thankyou for the prompt reply which actualy convinced me to share my every confusion here then wasting time on some useless groups!

    Can you please guide me is it possible to get job after passing plab without housejob

    Please guide me

  18. Where can i find answers of some of the mocks? Some have their answers included, but some mocks do not. What do I do about it?

  19. Jazak Allah Naseer bro! You did a great job for us ..
    Iam a student of 4th year. I will go through this year within few weeks & promote to Final year.
    I want to ask one question that what should i do for Plab 1 at that time bcz i haven’t completed yet all the topics regarding PLAB1 syllabus outline . So, please tell me what should i do at this level .

    1. You don’t need to study for PLAB 1 before graduating. Focus on final year. But do read my post for undergraduates.

      1. Please tell the process in detail after u get some free time. How easy is the process? How easily do we get a PR Card there?

      2. I don’t know the process in detail. But you can check the official UK Gov website for “ILR” and nationality.
