Just gave the exam 45 min back and am here right now typing what all i experienced during it.
One thing I want to start off with as an advice to all Future Plabbers. Please, and i say please, keep ur discussions alive on this wonderful website which is called "RxPG". I alwayz knew that I will be getting so many themes repeated from past papers, but i never knew that i will get also those themes which i vigourously attempted to discuss with my friends here on this forum. Quite a few themes which we all discussed in the last few weeks came up, and i was delighted by the sight of them. Quite other themes were there which were a bit new, but had been asked in a different way in the previous exams. Summary., approx 50% of the questions were either repeated or I had seen them on this website.
Now some things about the real exam:
1- Time was adequate, i finished the paper in one go in 1 1/2 hrs, leavingbehind around 60 odd questions left . In the second round, I did them in about 1 hr leaving about 30 min to recheck my paper. Time management should again strictly be followed. I saw the invigilators snatch quite a number of answer sheets from the examiness at the end of the exam, please mind the clock well.
2- First Aid to PLAB , I simply love this book. Read it along with PLAB digest. Enough.! Apart from the routine OHCM and OHCS. There were quite a number of questions from this book.
3- Past paper questions were repeated. Please do them 3-4 times at least.
4- For Gods sake, please, if u r a member of this website, do join in the discussions. They will open ur mind and make u think like u think in the exam
