    Hey there. I'm registered to do it too, but don't know which location yet! Did you get an email about it?

    The exam is 3 hours long and there are three sections:
    Section 1 is Critical Reasoning, which involves answering multiple choice questions on data like graphs, experiments, etc and detecting logical fallacies in them.
    Section 2 is Interpersonal Understanding, which involves reading passages of text regarding human thoughts/feelings and answering multiple choice questions on them (kind of like a reading comprehension).
    Section 3 is essay-based. We have to write two essays. The first essay is based on information provided to us in the form of graphs etc. The second essay is an opinion piece, for example writing about a statement given to us. Something like 'Boys are better than girls at football' - discuss.

    I'm really worried about it as well. Particularly for Section 1. The logical thinking is what stumps me, so I'm not getting my hopes up for a good score!

    Also anyone with experience of the HPAT - how did you think you did compared to how you actually did?
