Common Stations Success Pathway:
What we do for our candidates to be fully prepared for the PLAB2 exam:
1. We will first send them detailed online study materials so they can read on their own before taking the course. This lifts some of the weight of ‘reading’ off their shoulder and as a result they can spend more time on ‘practising’ after the course.
2. They will be having the option of taking our online course, if they wish to, prior attending their full course.
3. They will then attend our full PLAB2 course. The classes include lectures and interactive sessions. Since our course is mainly taught by Dr Hamed himself, during the interactive sessions, he constantly assesses the candidates and identifies their weaknesses and strengths. This enables our candidates to improve their skills and performance in the exam.
4. After completion of our PLAB2 course, the candidates will have their supervised SimMan session.
5. After completion of the full course, the candidates can have unlimited access to our self-practice facilities until their exam. We remain in touch with our candidates after the course so they can ask their questions and clear their doubts.
6. They will then take their full in-person mock exams, each consisting of 16 stations.
- The course runs from 09:00 AM to 07:00 PM each day.
- The whole Common Stations educational package fee is £595.
- Please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
- Please note that you need to practise for at least 4 to 8 weeks after your course finishes and prior to your exam, so please book your exam date accordingly.
