Test-Taking Strategy for Multiple-Choice Sections

Sections 1 and 2 of HPAT-Ulster are in multiple-choice format. You will choose your answer by selecting a radio button.

You are advised to work steadily through each of the multiple-choice sections without spending too much time on any one question. Read all the alternative answers to a question, even if you think you have identified the correct one, before selecting your choice. If you think you know the answer to a question, select it, even if you are not certain. Go on to the next question and come back later if you have time.

  • All questions have the same value, therefore by attempting as many questions as possible you have the best chance of maximising your score.
  • Marks will not be deducted for incorrect answers.
  • All questions are of equal value, but may vary in difficulty.
  • You may use the permitted scrap paper for rough work.
