Mehreen Malik’s PLAB 1 Experience

I cleared PLAB 1 with roughly two weeks of preparation, with a full-time job. I did only 1700 with explanations and Samson’s notes.


The Beginning

I started 1700 MCQs along with Samson’s notes. I used to go through MCQs whenever I found spare time during duty hours. And I used to study Samson’s notes while travelling to work, as I had to commute a long distance daily.


First Two Reads

I gave my first read to both with my job. Then I took two weeks off from work and I did both for the second time. My initial target was to do atleast 100 MCQs daily.


Third Read

Just before the exam, I gave a third read to marked MCQs only.


The Result

I cleared the exam with ease.



This exam is not that tough. Many questions were repeated as well. The most important thing is to manage time as it’s difficult to go through the MCQs for a second time due to shortage of time.
