Coronavirus - information for PLAB candidates

We’ve been doing all we can to get PLAB up and running following the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on our tests.

We’re restarting PLAB 2 from 13 August 2020. And we’re working with the British Council and other suppliers to introduce more seats to PLAB 1 test, and to provide an additional sitting on 15 October.

This guide gives you the latest information on our PLAB 1 and 2 tests, and what support is available for candidates.

Who is this guide for?

What will it help you with?
You’ll find information about how our tests are operating, what this means for you, and what we’re doing to run PLAB as safely and as regularly as possible.
