Cant find a PLAB seat should I check FYP instead?

Hi guys, am new year, just a quick Q, if you did an internship before obtaining your PMQ and have completed it, are you able to undertake FY ? Could this be an alternative option to be able to get a PLAB 1 seat?

Do you mean Foundation Year-2 Standalone?
:warning: PLAB and FY2 are two different things.

FY2 is a training programme and you need to be registered with the GMC in order to apply. PLAB is a required exam to be granted such registration.

You can apply to FY2-Standalone even if you have an acceptable overseas internship.

So no, it is not an alternative pathway.
Other PLAB-free routes for GMC registration would be:
