Is a general practitioner equivalent to mbbs or a MD?
If I take the route of GP ST1-3 after clearing plab and come back to India will I be considered as a MD doctor in India?

When do booking for PLAB 1 open?
I can see that for March 2019 session, all centres of India are already booked! And the booking for November 2019 are open (don’t know since when are they open)!
So anyone who is planning for plab should book about 10 months in advance!?

I am towards my end of third year of MBBS. I’m now clear that I will give the IELTS/OET and then PLAB after my graduation. How do you suggest, I should study in my remaining two years here in Pakistan? Which books and courses should I take lessons from?
