We encourage you to attend a 2-day MedEntry HPAT Preparation Workshop even if you have to travel a long distance. Many students from other cities, other counties, and overseas, travel to attend our HPAT workshops because there are several benefits of attending.

But don't just take our word for it, check out the hundreds of glowing Google and Facebook reviews of our workshops posted by our happy and successful students. We have more and higher ratings than every university in Ireland! MedEntry Sydney, Melbourne and Ireland offices have over 1000 reviews at a star rating of about 4.8+, far exceeding that of any university.

Three of the main benefits of the MedEntry 2 day workshop are:

1. Learn strategies for approaching the HPAT questions

The study guides on the online LMS (Learning Management System) do provide detailed approaches to different HPAT question types, but it is always more effective to be taught this information than simply to read it yourself – after all, according to the psychiatrist William Glasser, we learn 10% of what we read, but 50% of what we see and hear!

The HPAT workshop highlights what kind of approaches to questions are the most important, and what types of HPAT questions are the most common. This allows you to make the most of all the resources provided by MedEntry, and perform as well as possible on the HPAT. In evaluations, MedEntry students say that they either did not use the resources on the LMS, or did not know how to efficiently and effectively use them, until they attended a MedEntry HPAT Preparation Workshop.

Additionally, some inside knowledge and information that is not available elsewhere is provided at the HPAT workshop. You will also find that many of the skills that you learn at the HPAT workshop are transferrable, and useful for school and university study.

 

2. Motivation

Attending a MedEntry HPAT Preparation Workshop provides motivation to perform well on the HPAT, as it can make the whole HPAT process feel clearer and more real.

You will also meet fellow students with similar interests and passions. This is a fantastic opportunity for developing your thinking and forming new friendships and study groups, as well as a great source of motivation.

Additionally, you will hear from current students about how they used MedEntry to obtain excellent scores on the HPAT, as well as what to expect from studying at university. It is an invaluable opportunity to first-hand tips from people who have gone through it all before, and to be able to ask any burning questions you might have about the HPAT or university!

 

3. The trial exam

At the HPAT workshop you will be given the opportunity to sit a trial HPAT exam, based on which you will receive predicted HPAT scores. This is immensely helpful for a number of reasons:

- You will have a much better idea of what to expect from the experience of sitting the actual HPAT exam.

- You will be able to see how your scores compare to fellow MedEntry students, and how they are predicted to compare to those of everyone taking the exam.

- You will be able to determine your strengths and weaknesses; on what sections you need to focus the most, how to plan your HPAT preparation, and how to plan your approach in the HPAT itself. Remember that wherever you are at is just a starting point; it’s incredible what it’s possible to achieve with practice – and MedEntry provides all the resources to allow you to practice in the most effective way possible!

Further benefits of the MedEntry HPAT 2-day workshop include:

  • Learn how to use the LMS efficiently and effectively
  • Invest in your future by enhancing your thinking skills that will be useful throughout your careers
  • Interact with other like-minded students which will help develop your thinking skills
  • Network with motivated and able students from various schools in your city, other states and overseas – many of whom will be your colleagues in medical school
  • Discuss numerous past HPAT questions and efficient, effective and elegant ways of arriving at the answer

 

Attending a MedEntry HPAT Preparation Workshop is an invaluable opportunity that will allow you to achieve your best score possible on the HPAT.

The HPAT preparation courses are run by doctors and professors with decades of teaching experience and HPAT expertise.

Our primary lecturer Dr Edward is an academic with over thirty years of experience teaching in Australian universities. He has published several articles on educational research, delivered numerous papers/keynote addresses at several international Teaching and Learning Conferences. He has received numerous awards for teaching excellence. He has a long-standing interest in Psychometric measurement and spent time at educational research institutes such as the ETS (Princeton, USA), NFER (Slough, UK), and EAA (UNSW, Australia). Ed also lectured at several universities in various countries such as Brazil, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, USA and UK. He has been a Consultant and an Expert Witness for several organisations.

Dr Edward has been training students for tests such as the HPAT for over two decades. Among his successful students include his own children, both of whom were offered places in all medical schools in Australia and were awarded the Monash Scholarship for Outstanding Achievement (awarded to the best incoming student each year). They also received numerous other awards, accolades and achievements such as the "Youth of the Year" (National Finalists in 2001 and 2003); Prime Minister's Awards; Australian Students Prizes for Excellence; School Captains of Selective Entry Schools; Academic rank of 99.9; "Achiever of the Year" (awarded for the most outstanding co-curricular and community involvement to a LC student each year); Gold Medals in the University of NSW International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS); numerous awards for excellence in public speaking; Caltex Best All-rounder Awards; national level Debaters; perfect scores in HPAT; graduation in Medicine with First Class Honours etc.

They are not only the youngest doctors to be accepted into the training programs of the most competitive of medical specialties, but have also won medals for obtaining the top score in the country in the specialist training theory and clinical exams held by Royal Colleges (eg., see RACP News, Vol 32, No 2, April 2012, p27). His daughter won an unprecedented three medals in the nationwide Fellowship exams ('The Mole' ACD Issue 102, Spring 2014, p 8, 18; Health Link, Dec 2014 Issue 19, p 14). They are both currently working as Consultant Specialists. Dr Edward will aim to pass on to you the advice he gave his children which contributed to their unparalleled success. Dr Edward comes from a family of 28 doctors over four generations.

Dr Edward is a member of International Society for Intelligence Research, International Test Commission and an invited member of numerous professional organisations related to psychometric, educational, aptitude and personality testing. He is also Practice Manager of a Medical Centre and has a wide knowledge of the health profession and health-related issues.
