My Plab 1 experiences

My Plab 1 experience

1st attempt (Nov): failed by 4 marks

2nd attempt (Mar): passed by 4 marks 🤩 Alhumdulillah

I hope this post helps all, especially those who weren’t able to make it in their first attempt.

Active Complaints:

I was made too confident by some of the posts here and ended up leisurely going through plabable twice in 30 days and attempted a couple mocks. Unfortunately, it didn’t work for me. 😔

On examination:

One third of the exam was testing concepts I hadn’t come across.

One third of the exam was based around the concepts I had gone through in medrevisions/plabable.

One third of the exam was the exact same questions.


For first 30 days, went through Plabable + plab1keys one subject at a time, writing my own notes as I go.

Repeated Plab1keys in second run.

Went through flagged questions in 3rd run.

For next 10 days, went through a total of 1700 (should do more) high-yield questions from medrevisions.

For the last 7 days, went through Dr Swamy mocks, previous year’s recalls, and my beautiful notes.


Eat, pray, live.

Medrevisions questions were much more in-depth, so make sure you go through as many as you can.

Have good friends
