What is the HPAT exam?

The HPAT-Ireland (Health Professions Admission Test-Ireland) is an admissions test used by Irish Medical Schools for undergraduate entry 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 the intentions of people. HPAT test results are combined with the Leaving Certificate Examination assessment for selecting applicants for admission to an undergraduate Medical School programme.
