2. About Us: By Doctors for Students
As newly qualified doctors and recent students, we are well placed to provide guidance to students balancing their preparations for the Leaving Certificate and the HPAT, insight into the third level study of medicine and an understanding of the myriad career opportunities available subsequent to graduation.
3. Course Content
We offer a high quality course informed by our own experiences preparing for the HPAT whilst studying for our Leaving Certificates.
Students participate in interactive presentations on each section, solve worked examples and receive a presentation on and ask questions about the application processes to study medicine, medicine at third level and career prospects post graduation.
Students also sit a full length exam under simulated examination conditions to better prepare them for the HPAT in 2019. A detailed analysis of anonymised results is returned, enabling candidates to see not only their absolute score, but also their performance in each question and section, relative to their peers in the test taking population.
Students may book their place at www.masteraptitude-hpat.ie at a cost of €125 per person.
