The above list was made through experience! Of course, some things listed above are not ncecessary for all! So you have to choose which you would need! This is just to give an idea only!

Some points to note:
Before you leave for uk, scan all important pages of ur passport ( and other important documents) and send it YOUR OWN email.(in case of loss, u may get them easily).

While packing, keep all documents & important things in your "HAND" luggage.

Once, I saw a person struggling at the airport passport control post because he "carelessly" kept his passport in his luggage which cuold be taken only after the passport control only!

So you keep the passport, ticket, PLAB 2/PACES/exam invitation, accomm. confirmation and financial evidence with you at all times.

NEVER keep any sharp objects (knife, needles,etc.) in your handbag or in hand luggage!!!

Keep a thin jacket or some thick cloth in your hand luggage because you may need it once you've arrived in Heathrow.You can simply take it out and wear if the temperature/weather is not ok for you!!!

Make yourself look very British!!!
Say "Hello" (not hey, hi, hiya), "thank you" (not cheers), "My pleasure"/ "you are welcome!", "I'm sorry", "Don't worry, that's alright", "bye" (not cheers), "have a good time", "after you" whever possible !!!

Be so polite, decent and friendly and keep smiling to some extent.

If you find this information useful I'll be glad.

Best Wishes!
