The HPAT-Ireland (Health Professions Admission Test-Ireland) is an admissions test used by Irish Medical Schools for getting into medicine.
The HPAT-Ireland test measures a candidate’s logical reasoning and problem solving skills as well as non-verbal reasoning and the ability to understand the thoughts, behaviour and/or intentions of people. The test results will complement the Leaving Certificate Examination assessment for selecting applicants for admission to an undergraduate Medical School programme.
The HPAT is a two and a half hour test (except for University of Limerick applicants) - administered by ACER (Australian Council for Educational Research) in late Feb/early March. The head office of ACER is located in Melbourne, where MedEntry's office is also located.
University of Limerick applicants sit an additional 4th section as part of their HPAT. This is a 1 hour written essay component consisting of two questions. Further information on this 4th section can be found on the ACER HPAT site https://hpat-ireland.acer.edu.au/prepare/written-english-ul-applicants
