UK VISA for PLAB : Online VISA application

The day you appear in your PLAB 1 exam, I would suggest the next day you start working on your UK visa for PLAB 2. Why?

It will be a long discussion. So, I thought I will break it into parts. This part is only for the Online UK Visa Application for PLAB 2 . . .

I am Egyptian doctor working and living in KSA where I am applying for the visa … do I have to write KSA as a country that I have visited or not ?
What about national ID?
Is it my Egyptian national ID or KSA resident ID ??

One can apply from a country where he /she is working, hold a work permit/resident card. Applying from country of passport does not make sense.
