How long should my written communication be for the HPAT Ulster exam?


Most HPAT Ulster essays that get top scores are five or six paragraphs long. Very few top-scoring HPAT Ulster essays have fewer than four paragraphs. The scorers will evaluate your essay’s organisation and this includes how effectively you use paragraphs.

So, quality or quantity in my HPAT Ulster essay?


Quality is much more important than quantity in your HPAT Ulster essay. Nevertheless, you should try to fill the pages you’re given for the HPAT Ulster essay. Plan to write at least five paragraphs and add a sixth if you have enough time and substance.
