The HPAT's structure

In 2016 the HPAT has 3 sections: Logical Reasoning & Problem Solving, Understanding People and Non-verbal reasoning

HPAT non-verbal reasoning

"Questions in this section may be of several kinds. All are based on patterns or sequences of shapes and are designed to assess your ability to reason in the abstract and solve problems in non-verbal contexts." The three kinds are: 'continue the series', 'complete the diagram' and 'fits the middle'

HPAT tutorials:

If you need some HPAT tutorials read through the info on the tutorials page. The tutorials are one on one, and cover what you need to know, worked out by an initial conversation or as we go along.

HPAT text books:

Make sure you check out the two HPAT text books umat456 and umat123 if you need help with HPAT non verbal reasoning questions. These books were originally designed for UMAT students, UMAT is the same in structure and content to the HPAT, the test duration is longer in Australia for some reason(?)

Specialising in non-verbal reasoning test questions helps UMAT and HPAT students to pass their medical entrance test and job and promotion seekers to pass their psychometric or Raven's Matrices tests to gain the employment they're after. With free on-line questions, text books, and tutorials we'll get you there. Shane has over 8 years UMAT HPAT and Psychometric tutorial experience including working for and managing the National Institute of Education, Lecturing around Australia and New Zealand on UMAT, starting and, writing two nonverbal reasoning text books, and knows how to listen to anyone needing help and give them the skills they need to pass their tests.
