What is the HPAT?

The HPAT-Ireland examination is the admissions test selected by the Irish Medical Schools for undergraduate entry in to medicine.

The examination is independently administered by ACER (Australian Council for Educational Research), and tests a range of skills that are not tested in the Leaving Certificate. These skills include problem-solving, data-interpretation, logical reasoning, non-verbal reasoning and an assessment of a candidates ability to understand the thoughts, behaviour and/or intentions of people.
