COVID -19

INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, we have made changes to our mock dates to meet the current challenges. The new PLAB 2 dates will ensure that you spend as less time as possible in the UK. Most of our mock tests will now start 8-10 days before your exam, unlike before which was 14 days before your exam date. Please visit the PLAB part 2 mock section for more information.

We are currently running excellent online PLAB part 2 classes which most people are finding very helpful and in fact the majority of people feel that it is even better than in-person courses.

This is my suggestion to you:

Attend our online PLAB part 2 course, practice in our center located in your home country and come to UK for your mock exams. We have centres in the following cities: Lagos, Cairo, Lahore, Bangalore, Dubai, London and Manchester. To find our if the centre in your country is working please email us.

When you come for your mock exams, I will ensure that I review your performance in your PLAB 2 mock tests including communication and interpersonal skills.

Ware currently not booking for the mock tests as the PLAB 2 mock dates are not yet out. Once the GMC exam dates are out, we will update our mock section accordingly. And you would need to ensure that you are booked for the right mock exams to avoid personal feedback. Personal feedback is crucial for your success in PLAB 2 exam.  Unfortunately, I cannot make personal arrangements due to tight schedule, so make every effort to be booked for your scheduled mock exams once PLAB 2 resumes.

London centre update: For your own safety we will no longer be conducting PLAB 2 mock tests in London. The current London centre is unable to fulfil the government criteria of social distancing during the mock tests as the rooms are quite small. You will, however be able to practice on manikins in London at a new address at a new address once we resume. London PLAB 2 classes will be conducted in as usual.

Social distancing at Manchester centre

We’ve installed floor markings and signage around the centre to remind everyone of the social distancing measures in place. Please adhere to this guidance at all times. The health and safety of everyone involved is our priority. So anyone who does not comply with these rules may be asked to leave. Please comply with the rules and maintain a 2 meter distance from others.

Practising at Manchester centre is now open.

We are happy to announce that the Manchester centre is open for practice But we have to comply with current UK government guidance on social distancing and safe workplaces, so the number of candidates we can allow to practice at the same time is lower than usual. You will now need to book a manikin and/or examination rooms to practice. Your safety is our priority.

You are therefore required to wear mask and gloves and maintain a 2 meter distance from other candidates who are not from the same bubble as you.

But you will have  full access to all the manikins and examination equipments. We have new and exact match mannikins like in the GMC which will allow you to familiarise yourself with all the equipments you might meet in the exam.

We are proud to say we are the leading PLAB part 1 and 2 provider in the UK with 90% of the candidates sitting for the plab 2 exam attending our course. You will definitely have an advantage over anyone who has not attended our PLAB 2 course.

Changes to the PLAB 2 test by GMC

The GMC has introduced a number of changes to the way they run the exam to keep people safe. As guidance from the government changes GMC may need to make further adjustments. You must check their website for the any updates.

Here is a summary of the changes made by GMC to the PLAB 2 exam:

The new and Socially distanced PLAB 2 exam

Number of stations: 15 (+ 3 rest stations)

Length of exam: 2 hours 51 minutes

Number of stations you need to pass: 9 stations or more

What has remained the same with the PLAB 2 exam?

The length of each station ( 8 minutes) the standard of the test, the location of the test or the way you’ll get your results.

PLAB 2 Booking:

Booking for PLAB 2 has become more competitive and you will need to hurry to book an exam whenever places become available. You may be informed by GMC when it may become possible for you to boo an exam. This also means that you have to use a your PLAB 2 exam chance very well as failing an exam may mean that you will take very long to have another chance. Leading to problems such as expired IELTS or PLAB 1 results.

As samson candidate:

You can be rest assured that I will give more time to make sure you pass in your first attempt cause I know how difficult it has been for you to get this PLAB 2 chance. I will make add advantage to your preparation which others will not have. As PLAB 2 mock exams begins I will spend more and more time in the mocks exams and making sure that your final touches either for your PLAB part 1 or 2 are spot on. But definitely I will also teach both PLAB 1 and 2 classes

If you have got any questions, please do not hesitate to email us: info@samsoncourses.com.

Keep well and I will see you soon.
