Is possible to apply for GMC Registration still as a medical student?

Hi, everyone!

I was wondering if it is possible to apply for the GMC registration process while still being a final year medical student? Would it be possible to take PLAB 1, for example, as a student, just like in America students take the Step 1 before finishing medical school?

Thanks for helping!

No, it’s not possible. You have to complete your primary medical qualification(PMQ) first.

NB: You DO NOT need to have your house job/internship completed in order to sit for PLAB 1. So you can take the plabs during your internship but not during your clinical clerkship or medical school.
