    I was at the exam hall in TCD.
    I found that the timing was really really lax compared to the ukcat.
    I mean like before the feller called the ten mins left stuff I'd finished and was allready re looking through my answers n every section.
    This either means i did well, or really terribly.
    Probably the latter tbh.
    Trinity college is a really nice place!

    Dublin is SOO expensive though, that's pretty much why Cork is my first choice.

    Completely flopped it. Anyone else feel like doing the HPAT turned out to be a total waste of time (and money)?

    I have no idea what points total you need for chemistry but for me even with top grades in my AS/A2 subjects I'm still going to be 37 points short of the minimum needed for medicine at any of the Irish medical schools. Damn you HPAT.

    I'm about 20 short including my A levels converted.
    Also did woefully poor in it :P
    Still a better test than the UKCAT though.
    and happy that i'm going this year, got in in the UK.
