I think C fits the rule. if you add the circle's colour in column 1 and column 3 together and you can find out column 2. if the circles at the same position in column 1 and 3 are in different colours, you get white circle in the middle. if they are in the same colour, you get black in the middle. and if it's "nothing+one colour", just keep that colour.
Hope you can understand my poor explanation

Hi. I'm sooo glad I've finally found someone whose also sitting the HPAT this month.

I'm a UK applicant but thought might aswell apply to the ROI med schools but revising for the HPAT has been tough.

How are you finding it ??

It's been ok, I think it's better than ukcat because the time isn't as restrictive. I only started revising at the start of February though, since I'm the definition of a procrastinator. What about you?

When are you flying out?

Hi thanks for getting back to me. It feels nice knowing there's someone who I can talk to about this test.

Yeah I think so aswell. The ukcat is a lot about guesswork but the HPAT involves more problem solving to it. The whole ROI med schools thing is a back up for me anyway incase I don't get in here but since I did 4A2's (I'm a reapplicant on a gap year) I thought I might aswell sit it and try my very very best for it. Plus TCD/UCD and RCSI look like great med schools.

OMG same !!! I did like 1 past paper in Jan and I only really started revising hardcore like last week.
But I don't think it's a test you can revise months for. I think it's all about practice and getting familiar to the format of the questions as well as how calm and collected you are on the day.

Do you mind me asking how your preparing for it and which sections your finding difficult ??

Also have u applied to UK med schools and hows that side of the application going ??

I think we're getting our admission ticket this Saturday so I'll book my flights/hotel then.
I'm gonna treat it as a holiday tbh lol as I've already had my 4 UK med school interviews and I really wanna see Dublin so I'll probably go a day or 2 before and stay for a few nights.

Feel free to PM me if you'd prefer.

Hey! I'm also from the UK applying to Ireland and am currently doing some practise HPAT papers- finding them quite tough!! Is anyone else pushed for time on section 1? I'm ok on the others but never finish time on the first Also, do you know if we're allowed to go back to previous sections if we have some spare time on another section?
Thanks!!

Hiya
I'm afraid your not allowed to move on if u have spare time left. ACER are very very strict about this and if your caught using yur time on a section your not supposed to you may be disqualified.

I know it's a tough exam.

Do u mind me asking what your stats are and where else have u applied in the UK.

Also did u get your admissions ticket and which centre are u in
