  • Dr. Aoife Jones, who has a PhD in astrophysics, will help students navigate their way through Section 3 of the exam. Her doctoral research was based on modelling 2D and 3D computer simulations of astrophysical plasma flows and analysing the results. As such, she is an ideal candidate for sharing techniques for identifying patterns and helping to advance students’ spatial reasoning.

    Mr. Eoghan Casey is a Barrister-at-Law who holds a First Class Honours Degree in Mathematical Science and has taught at secondary and university level. He scored the highest mark in the country in Leaving Cert Honours Maths in his year. Eoghan worked for over four years in finance where recruitment is heavily reliant on performance in aptitude tests and puzzle-type exams and interviews.

  • Relentless exam focus, including mock examinations

    City Colleges’ HPAT candidates spend a substantial amount of time studying effective techniques for completing all three sections of the examination, and are afforded ample opportunities to attempt past and sample exam questions which are graded by the HPAT tutors.
