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 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 to candidates. Candidates who have not succeeded in 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 service anywhere else other than at SAMSONPLAB ACADEMY.
PLAB HAS CHANGED
In light of the new update from the GMC, I would like to inform current and prospective candidates that PLAB has changed! We at Samsonplab have made great preparation to meet the challenges of the new PLAB exams.
The pattern for PLAB 1 exam changed from september 2016. The new PLAB exam has become more rigorous and more reflective of real-life practice. It includes a selection of questions related to professionalism, medico-legal and ethics.
For everyone appearing for the PLAB exams, Samson Plab is an excellent and the best preparation centre for you.
I strongly advise prospective candidates to choose their course centre wisely to help prepare you adequately for the exam. At Samson Plab we have an excellent pass rate and this is the right place to clear the exam at first attempt. We guarantee that most of the exam questions come from our question bank 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 candidate and take multiple classes to ensure that the candidates are on the right path to clear the exam in their first attempt.
The feedback I received from the PLAB 1 candidates who appeared in the November 2016 exam was very positive. Over 90% of the questions in the exam were from our question banks and mocks. Our pass rate is very high (99%) and we pride ourselves in helping our candidates clear PLAB 1 in first attempt.
We are updated our course to meet the needs of the new exam pattern and cover the GMC blue print of the most frequently tested domains: knowledge, skills and performance; safety and quality; communication, partnership and teamwork; maintaining trust.
PLAB 2 is an OSCE based exam – Objective Structured Clinical Examination, The new exam consists of 18 stations and 2 rest stations making a total of 20 stations.
The 18 stations are all OSCE based, all the 18 stations are assessed and count towards your pass mark. There are 2 minutes to read the instructions and patient information and 8 minutes to perform the task in the given scenario. Each station therefore lasts 10 minutes in total and the 2 rest stations allow candidates a ten minute break each time.
PLAB 2 exam tests candidates’ communication skills (history taking and counselling) and clinical skills (manikins and examination). New questions and practical scenarios will assess candidates’ professionalism and understanding of ethics as well as their clinical knowledge and skills.
Candidates will be tested on three domains: Data-gathering, technical and assessment skills, Clinical management skills and Interpersonal skills.
The new plab is more complex than the previous one. The scenarios are more integrated rather than individual separate tasks. The task could often involve aspects of clinical reasoning, taking a patient’s history and working out what you do with the findings.
