I will share why I think PLAB 2 is one of the easiest exams in the world.
I did not study hard for PLAB 2. But I still got a high score of 155/216. In my opinion, knowledge and clinical skills do not matter a lot in PLAB 2. Kindness, confidence and good communication skills matter more than anything else.
The scoring criteria judges us for 3 different skills:
A) History taking (4 marks)
B) Management (4 marks)
C) Interpersonal skills (4 marks)
Since passing scores are only around 50%, you only need to score 6 out of 12 in each station to pass.
A) Even if you mess your history taking, you will still ask something, so you will still score at least 1 or 2 out of history taking.
B) Unless you make any blunders in your management, even if you make mistakes, you will still score at least 1 or 2 out of 4.
C) As long as you are nice to the patients and communicate well, you will score 4 out of 4 in interpersonal skills.
Thus, even if you mess up any stations, you will still score 6 to 8 out of 12 and pass your bad stations.
As long as you do well, you can score 10 to 12 out of 12 in other stations.
Therefore, as long as you are nice, confident and communicate well, it can be very difficult to fail PLAB 2.
