HPAT Online Mock Exam

If you require any further information, please call us on 061444989.

We have endeavored to reflect ACER HPAT Ireland exam conditions. We cannot simulate exactly the test but students will populate their responses online, as in the act HPAT Ireland exam, and these will be electronically marked and emailed back to participants. 

There are two parts to the exam process:

  • 1. All registered students will receive in PDF format, the three sections of the exam. It is recommended that parent/guardian prints this exam well in advance. At the time exam is to be administered, the printed version should be given to the student.
  • 2. Each student will have an email to enter the exam. The student will be presented with a multiple choice answer sheet. The student will click on the answer they deem to be correct. The timing of each section follows HPAT Ireland and follows the time limits which are available here https://hpat-ireland.acer.org/files/HPAT-Ireland_2021.pdf
  • At completion of time limits for each section and the overall exam, exam will cease and results submitted automatically. The results will be generated automatically against master answer key, and results emailed back. There will be a breakdown of results in each section. 


Note: 1. ACER uses a standardization process to generate overall score out of 300 marks. Kilmartins does not have access to the algorithm used to smooth results. We will present an overall result out of 300 marks. But caveat we don’t have access to ACER standardization final step. 


What is the HPAT?

The admissions test selected by the Irish Medical Schools is called HPAT – Ireland (Health Professions Admission Test-Ireland).  The 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.

It is designed to complement academic achievement, by providing assessment of skills in the areas of reasoning understanding and working with people, HPAT – Ireland has a strong focus on general skills and personal abilities. These skills have been identified as important for a competent health professional. It does not test academic knowledge and candidates do not require special understanding of any academic discipline.
