Registrations to sit HPAT in 2023 are now open. You can register for HPAT by visiting the ACER website: https://hpat-ireland.acer.org/register.

Detailed information regarding HPAT 2023, including how to register, book your test and sit HPAT, are available in the HPAT 2023 Information Booklet: https://hpat-ireland.acer.org/files/HPAT_Information_booklet_2023_Final.pdf

Here’s a summary of what you need to know.


1. Registrations close in January

Registrations to sit HPAT in 2023 are now open and will close on 20 January 2023 at 5:15pm GMT. Late registrations will be accepted up to 5:15pm on 30 January 2023 (subject to an additional late fee). An exceptional late registration is available until 5:15pm on 3 February 2023 (only applicable to those test takers who have submitted their application to the CAO by 1 February). The standard fee to sit HPAT is 152.80 euro.


2. HPAT will take place from 17 – 25 February, and will run online

HPAT 2023 will take place over several days and time slots from Friday 17 February to Saturday 25 February 2023. It will take place online. For further information, check out our blog on HPAT online.


3. You will need to register for HPAT on the ACER website

If you are applying for medicine you will first need to apply to the CAO for a CAO number.  You can do this online at www.cao.ie

Next, to register to sit HPAT 2023, you will need to visit the ACER website: https://hpat-ireland.acer.org/register and create an online account. When creating an account, it is important that you provide an email address that you will check regularly and ensure that the name and date of birth you provide exactly matches the identification document you will use on test day.

You will then need to complete the registration form.  In the section which asks which test you are registering for, make sure to select ‘HPAT – Ireland’. You will also need to confirm that you have read the HPAT – Ireland 2023 Information Booklet and that you agree to the terms and conditions.

After completing the form, submit details of your payment. You will receive a registration confirmation and payment receipt once your payment and registration are successful and this will be sent to your registered email address.


4. You will need to visit the ProctorU website to book a HPAT testing session

In early December, bookings will open for HPAT testing sessions. You will be able to choose your preferred testing date and time via a ProctorU account. ProctorU is the organisation that will be supervising and administering the online HPAT on behalf of ACER. When creating a ProctorU account, you will need to use the same email address that you used to create your ACER account to avoid issues on test day.

MedEntry recommends booking a testing slot as soon as possible after bookings open. This will ensure you are able to secure a testing date and time that best suits you.

Further details will be released by ACER over the coming weeks. Ensure you follow MedEntry on social media for updates!
