HPAT Grinds

The Health Professions Admission Test

At Nenagh Tutorial, we offer grinds to students who are intending on taking the HPAT test for entry into medicine and health professions degree programs. The test measures a candidate’s logical reasoning and problem solving skills as well as nonverbal reasoning and the ability to understand the thoughts, behaviour and/or intentions of people.

Our HPAT grinds can be delivered person to person at our school in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary or delivered via a Zoom or Teams video call.

If the student chooses the person to person HPAT grind, he/she is required to follow the latest Covid – 19 restrictions.

  • Students must sanitise hands upon entry to the room.
  • Face coverings will be in line with guidelines set out by the Department of Education and Science.

Cost of the HPAT grinds are €60 for a 1 hour grind.

The student is required to bring their text books and a refill pad with them to the grind.

Fill in the form with your details and your preferred date and time and we will get back to you with availability.

You are then required to pay online using this form.

HPAT Information

Section 1 – Logical reasoning and problem solving:

These questions assess your ability to understand, infer rational conclusions, identify relevant facts, analyse information, identify omitted/supplementary information, and create and evaluate possible hypotheses.

Section 2 – Interpersonal understanding:

This section tests your ability to perceive reactions, beliefs, emotions and motivations of other people from a short text or conversational piece. These questions often involve interactions between professionals and non-professionals, or people with differing perspectives, which you have to appreciate and understand.

This section requires a mix of verbal comprehension and interpretation of matters of a personal or human nature. While the items seek to identify your ability to understand various human situations, they are still constructed in a way where the information required to answer a question correctly is always provided.
