PLAB Part 6


PLAB Part 6 consists of nonsense words based on English consonants and vowels (and essentially English syllable structure). The voice on the audio recording pronounces one of the 4 words in each response set, and the examinee simply indicates which word was spoken.

For example, the voice on the recording would pronounce [tarpled]. The examinees would see the following four options in the test booklet, and would have to choose the correct answer, in this case, option B.

1.       A. trapled

B. tarpled

C. tarpdel

D. trapdel
