Demand for our Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) tests is very high. The number of candidates we can test in one sitting is lower than normal because we have to comply public health guidance in the UK and in PLAB 1 host countries.
We’re doing all we can to increase the number of places we can offer to candidates who want to sit PLAB.
Keep checking Coronavirus - information for PLAB candidates for the latest information.
The Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board test, or the PLAB test, helps us to make sure doctors who qualified abroad have the right knowledge and skills to practise medicine in the UK. There are two parts to the PLAB test.
