The Academy with the difference

PLAB RIGHT - "The academy with the difference"

About Us

PLAB Right offers a unique training opportunity for doctors appearing in the PLAB 2 exam. PLAB Right academy was established in 2005 and has 15 years of experience in training doctors for the PLAB exam. Unlike other academies PLAB Right does not let doctors who have just passed the PLAB exam to teach or to assess you in mock tests.

Mission

Our teaching focuses on upskilling overseas doctors to fully prepare them for the PLAB exam and not ask them to rote learn scripts of OSCE. We believe in empowering doctors to boost their confidence and skills. We focus on teaching 25 strategies to deal with any clinical situation that may appear in the PLAB exam. This approach makes a doctor competent and also prepares them for new PLAB scenarios.

Recent Changes to PLAB 2 - 2019

Details of changes made to PLAB 2 since 2019

Professor Adrian Freeman conducted an external review of PLAB exams and made recommendations in 2019. Click here for the review document

Cloning

Cloning of OSCE stations brings unpredictable variations in OSCE scenarios which diminishes the candidate’s ability to use rote learned scripts. Cloning of OSCE stations involves creating different patient scenarios for the same question.

Allocation of rest stations

Rest stations are stations that are conducted as normal OSCE stations but not counted towards the result. After the exam, GMC determines which stations should be classed as rest stations and this depends on the performance of the group. OSCE stations that have not been able to differentiate performance of candidates are likely to be classed as rest stations. This includes stations in which all candidates have managed to do well or have done very badly.

Automatic random selection of OSCE scenarios for the exams

GMC has over 350 OSCE scenarios in their question bank. In the past, examiners were manually selecting OSCE scenarios for the exam. This resulted in some OSCE stations being the favourites and frequently appearing in the exam. Professor Adrian Freeman recommended automatic computerised selection of OSCE scenarios from the full question bank. This is likely to make the PLAB 2 exam more difficult because it would be impossible to predict OSCE scenarios that will appear in the exam.
