The Health Professions Admission Test (HPAT) is a test applicable to students wishing to apply for Medicine in university. When combined with the Leaving Certificate Examination, the HPAT accounts for 34.7% of the points available when applying for Medicine. So when you think of the time students put into Maths, Irish, Chemistry etc. you should keep in mind the importance of putting time aside for preparing for the HPAT exam.


8 reasons to trust The Dublin Academy of Education with your preparation for the HPAT exam:

1. ONLINE HPAT PLATFORM

Students can access our online platform, which contains over 1,700 HPAT questions, with 26 focused drills, 9 sectional exams and 10 full-length HPAT exams. This platform acts as an opportunity for continuous practice and provides instant feedback of results.

2. TWO DAY WORKSHOP
Our workshop is delivered by our specialised HPAT teacher. Students will go home with a comprehensive set of HPAT study notes, with an extensive bank of HPAT practice questions, ensuring learning continues well after the course.

3. MOCK EXAMINATION
The second half of the 2-Day Workshop will give students the opportunity to sit a full-length mock examination under simulated HPAT conditions. This helps students to perfect their time management, which is a crucial element of the HPAT and ensures that they keep their nerves under control when sitting the examination.

4. FEEDBACK ON PERCENTILE SCORE
Students will be sent their mock examination results, which will include students’ raw scores and a breakdown of what they scored in each individual section (outlining areas they need to work on). Students will also be given a percentile score, detailing the position where the student came in the exam in comparison with other students. This information is of critical importance to the student due to the highly competitive nature of the HPAT.

5. EXAM-FOCUSED NOTES
These expertly compiled notes include questions modelled on past exam questions. Students will work through these during the course, familiarising themselves with the style of questions on the HPAT. The notes include over 300 pages and ensure students have a comprehensive knowledge of what is needed to succeed in the HPAT.

6. ADVICE ON EXAM STRATEGIES
We will demystify this exam, and provide students with tricks and techniques that can be applied to each section of the test. Students will be shown how certain predictable trends appear and recur over and over again in the HPAT. Students will also be shown numerous strategies, which will allow them to answer questions more efficiently than their counterparts, in this notoriously time-challenging exam. These skills will arm students with all the tools required to get the edge in this exam. This vital edge is compounded by the competitiveness of the exam, with only the top 20% of HPAT students achieving a score of 170+, the widely accepted minimum HPAT target.

7. STUDY GUIDE
This guide helps students to tailor their very own individual study plan. This ensures that students focus on optimising their study time alongside the standard Leaving Certificate Examinations. Students’ time is at a premium during 6th Year and this guide focuses on how best to utilise it.

8. FULL SOLUTIONS WITH EXPLANATIONS
All questions provided at our course are accompanied with fully worked solutions. These solutions also include a full explanation, making sure students know which keywords and phrases to look out for when reading HPAT questions.
