The Health Professionals Admissions Test, more commonly known as the HPAT, is an exam you have to take in addition to the Leaving Cert, in order to obtain a place in Undergraduate Medicine in Ireland. It usually takes place near the end of February in 6th year.

Aditi Chaturvedi is a student who got 193 points in the HPAT this February, securing the 97th percentile nationwide. In the below guide she explains her method of doing well in the exam, and shows how you can too! 

 

We hope this guide helps you succeed in your HPAT exam in order to continue to study Medicine or otherwise. If you have any questions just let us know. :)
