We’re working closely with the British Council and our suppliers around the world to run PLAB 1 as safely and as regularly as possible.

PLAB 1 tests scheduled for 18 February 2021 are currently going ahead as planned in the UK and around the world. All venues have stringent hygiene and social distancing measures in place.

We'll continually review our arrangements based on public health advice in the countries where tests are held.

Booking your place

We’ve now opened all our currently available PLAB 1 places for tests held throughout 2021. We will from time to time release additional seats where we are able to do so. And occasionally, a very small number of seats might become available because of cancellations. You can check availability on GMC Online.

We’ll continue to work with the British Council and our suppliers to offer as many seats as possible in locations around the world. Some venues have reduced capacity in order to comply with public health guidance in the host countries. If and when we can increase seats in any of our locations, we’ll do so as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued patience as you wait to book your place.
