With over 34 years of assessment industry experience, we provide Ireland's No. 1 HPAT® preparation courses. Preparation for the HPAT®-Ireland Exam is vital. You must remember that this exam is worth 1/3 of the points that you require for entry to Medicine. The Leaving Certificate is worth the remaining 2/3 of the points. So, when you consider the time and resources that you set aside for your other Leaving Certificate subjects, it is certainly worth setting aside structured time for your HPAT®-Ireland Exam study. This is where we can help.

So, you're thinking about Studying Medicine in University?

First of all, well done on your decision to pursue medicine. This is a challenging and rewarding university course choice. As you may know, entry into university courses in Ireland (including Medicine) is officiated by the Central Applications Office (CAO). Each year, depending on the number of candidates applying for medicine, the CAO decide how many points are required to gain entry into the medicine degree courses. 

It's competitive 

Students wishing to pursue an undergraduate medicine course must compete against each other for a limited number of university places by achieving points in both the Leaving Certificate Examination and the HPAT®-Ireland exam

Preparation is a must

The Leaving Certificate will take up the vast majority of your time and that is how it should be. However, the HPAT®-Ireland exam is a notoriously difficult exam. If you are serious about studying medicine you will need to have a realistic study and preparation plan to ensure you achieve your maximum score. This is exactly what the Career Services preparation course provides you with.

What is the HPAT Exam?

The HPAT®-Ireland exam is the medicine admissions/entry test selected by the Irish Medical Schools for prospective medical students and is administered by the Australian Council for Educational Research Limited (ACER).

The HPAT®-Ireland exam measures a candidate’s logical reasoning and problem-solving skills, non-verbal reasoning, and the ability to understand the thoughts, behaviour and/or intentions of people. It does not test academic knowledge and candidates do not require special understanding of any academic discipline.

A Student's Experience

The following account is written by a Leaving Certificate student who was successful in her HPAT® exam and her application for medicine.

"I have dreamed of becoming a doctor since a very early age. As soon as Leaving Cert year rolled around I knew I had a huge task ahead of me. I found the best way to approach this intimidating year is to do it one step at a time. The big picture at this moment is overwhelming and you can waste a massive amount of valuable time and energy on worry and negative thoughts"....
