2019 Simulated HPAT Exam

MedEntry is giving you an opportunity to gain valuable additional exam practice close to the actual HPAT exam to be held on February 23rd, 2019.

MedEntry will be conducting an alternative full-length simulated HPAT Exam to provide you with some all-important last-minute skill enhancement.

The 2019 Simulated HPAT exam will consist of 110 questions combining each of the 3 question types (Logical Reasoning & Problem Solving, Understanding People and Non-Verbal Reasoning) in the same format as in the actual test.

The exam will be held under real exam conditions and will have a strict 2 1/2 hour time limit and the questions will simulate the actual HPAT.

This exam is available to all students, regardless of whether you are a current MedEntry student or not.

For our Platinum and Diamond package holders who have already completed the trial exam on day 2 of your workshop, you now also have an opportunity to sit this different supplementary simulated HPAT exam.

This alternative exam will be conducted on the following days:

  • Dublin 10 February
  • Galway 19 February
  • Cork 17 February

Registrations for the Dublin and Cork Simulated HPAT Exams will commence at 11:30am and the exam will conclude at approximately 2:30pm. Registrations for the Galway Simulated HPAT Exam will commence at 11.45am and the exam will conclude at approximately 2:45 pm.

Answers and detailed fully worked solutions will be available.

If you desire, you will also be provided with your percentile rank in comparison with the nationwide MedEntry HPAT cohort and your expected HPAT percentile rank. You will also be provided with an indication of your strengths and weaknesses and the likelihood of being offered a medical school place. Please note this is optional.

To book your place in this alternative exam, please go to your My MedEntry log-in, and proceed to purchase this product in the MedEntry Shop. You will be able to book your place once the purchase is complete.

Details of the exact location will be emailed to you about two working days prior to the exam.
