About SAMSONPLAB ACADEMY
Hello my name is Samson Chisi. I have been teaching PLAB 1 and PLAB 2 for the past 7 years and I have the GMC logic to make you succeed in the PLAB exams. Through my NHS experience, 7 years teaching experience and feedback from the previous candidates I have all you need to pass your exams. I teach most of the classes myself to make sure you gain the most from our training.
I offer one to one help. And those candiates that have failed the exam anywhere else are welcome. I will sit down with you and try to find out where it went wrong and advise you where to make changes. You will not find this from anywhere else other than at SAMSONPLAB ACADEMY.
PLAB IS CHANGING
In light of the new update from the GMC, I would like to inform my present and future students that plab is changing! We at Samsonplab have made great preparation to meet the challenges of the new PLAB exams.
The pattern for PLAB 1 exam is changing from september 2016. To appear in the exam set on the present pattern, June 2016 is the last date. I would encourage everyone to get done with the exam before the new pattern comes in.
For everyone appearing for the June’2016 exam, this is your last chance to clear PLAB 1 in the known old pattern.
I advise everyone to chose their course wisely as this is the last time you get a chance to appear in the familiar PLAB pattern. Please do not risk it by self studying. At Samson Plab we have an excellent pass rate and this is the right time to appear and clear as we guarantee that most of the exam questions come from our question back and mocks.
To help you do that samson plab academy has a very experienced staff taking detailed classes on all the subjects for PLAB 1. Our teachers handpicked by me to ensure that you are taught by the best.
I personally take keen interest in the progress of each student and take multiple classes to ensure that my students are on the right path to clear the exam in the first attempt.
The feedback I got from the PLAB 1 students who appeared in the March 2016 exam was very positive. Over 90% of the questions in the exam were from our question bank and mocks. Our pass rate is very high (99%) and we pride ourselves in helping our students clear plab one in first attempt.
For those appearing after September 2016, we are updating our course to meet the needs of the new pattern.
EXAM SYNOPSIS – OUTLINE
PLAB 2 is an OSCE based exam – Objective Structured Clinical Examination which at present is comprised of 16 stations. The 16 stations are all OSCE based, 14 stations are assessed and count towards your pass mark and 2 are pilot stations used to assess candidates mainly for the purpose of inclusion in future GMC PLAB 2 exams. Each OSCE station lasts 5 minutes and you have 1 additional minute to read the information about the station scenario posted outside the door.
PLAB 2 exam tests candidates’ communication skills (history taking and counselling) and clinical skills (manikins and examination)
I encourage everyone who has cleared PLAB 1 recently to appear for the PLAB 2 in the familiar old pattern because the exam starting from September 2016 will be based on the new pattern.
The new plab is going to be more complex than the existing one and if you wish to get done before the new exam is introduced now is the right time to register with the most reliable and experienced institute – Samson Plab Academy
Our PLAB 2 pass rate is 98% in first attempt. Utilise this golden opportunity of clearing the exam in first attempt in the known old pattern . The classes are taken by myself and doctors who have plab and NHS experience. We have the right mix of experience and enthusiasm to ensure that our students have the knowledge as well as the zeal to appear in the exam with confidence.
The academy is equipped with excellent mannikins that are available to the students to practice without any restrictions.
The academy is equipped with new apple computers and ipads that the students can access to watch the GMC scenario simulated videos to revise for the exam as many times as they want. I have personally simulated the videos to ensure that they are upto date with the standard gmc expects of the candidates.
We pride ourselves in the quality of mocks that we provide. The mocks are as close to the real exam and our simulators are fantastic actors. Students are graded as per the gmc standard.
The mock is followed by a detailed feedback where I personally demonstrate the stations and give individual feedback. Our team of examiners provides detailed feedback as well as encourages the candidates to do better with every mock and prepares them to take on the real exam with confidence.
