Why Kaplan?

HPAT Preparation You Can Trust

Kaplan's test prep courses get results. Our market-leading prep options and industry expertise have helped tens of thousands of students gain entry to medical school for both graduate and undergraduate programmes. We invest heavily every year in research and learning software development to ensure that we provide the most comprehensive tools and resources in the market.  

 World leader in test prep

We have 75 years of proven expertise in standardised test preparation. Our HPAT prep options provide you with the tools, strategies and practice required to achieve great scores in this high stakes exam.

 Quality practice

Our team of experts extensively research and analyse the exam to create a quality course to help students succeed on test day.

 Most up to date materials

We review and update our course materials every year to provide the most up-to-date and relevant techniques, strategies and practice. Our experienced team of curriculum writers and content developers are true test experts.

 Personalised score reports

We have developed a brand new online study centre to track your actions as you progress through your course materials. This will help you easily identify the sections and question types where you need to focus.

 100% teaching focus

We believe that the true value of a prep course is in learning from an expert who will teach you key strategies and techniques to score higher on the exam. Therefore, we don't spend valuable classroom time taking practice tests. With a Kaplan course, classroom time is teaching time.

 Kaplan trained teachers

It is not enough to be a high scorer. Kaplan teachers are required to have a top 10% score and take part in a rigorous screening process to ensure that they are also a great teacher. We continuously monitor our faculty and collect student feedback to ensure our high standards are being maintained.

Thomas G, Classroom Course Student.

This course is one of the main reasons I achieved a place at medical school. It gives you a massive confidence boost over all the other candidates you are competing against. It really does prepare you for one of the hardest tests I have ever done. After the course you know exactly what to expect and all the small things you can do to ensure you get the highest result possible.

Molly P, Classroom Course Student.

The classroom course was well organised and very helpful in teaching specific approaches to each section. I found the online material especially helpful. Completing a practice test every day in the week leading up to my test really helped to prepare me!

HPAT Classroom Course Student

I much liked the manner in which [our teacher] explained the information required of us to retain, working through examples step-by-step, making sure each and every one of his students understood the underlying principles of each of the sections of the HPAT. He proved to be very patient when one of the students had a hard time grasping the concepts and rushed no part of the course.

HPAT Classroom Course Student

Kaplan are understanding, helpful and their staff are very genuine people!

HPAT Self Study Student - Jan 2017

The HPAT Self Study course was very easy to use, I could access the site and video lessons on many of my devices, it always managed to motivate me.

HPAT Self Study Student - Jan 2017

I highly recommend Kaplan. At the beginning I was very stressed but through the course I became confident. Without Kaplan I wouldn't be able to achieve such results!

HPAT Self Study Student - Feb 2017

My experience was wonderful. The course helped me greatly and the resources and sections provided were excellent. The Kaplan representatives were extremely kind and helpful with handling any queries I had whilst I used the course, and the study centre was very pleasant to use and laid out very well. All of the resources were easy to access and very beneficial, and the lessons were invaluable.
On the day of the HPAT I felt confident and prepared to take the test.

HPAT Classroom Course Student - Jan 2018

I found the classroom course and the online resources very beneficial and I feel more prepared and ready to sit the HPAT exam in February.

HPAT Self Study Course Student - Jan 2018

My experience on this course was overall a very positive one. The fact that I had these useful resources available at any time, and at any place was a plus. The videos were very helpful and I now know more about the HPAT than I thought I would.

HPAT Classroom Course Student - Jan 2018

The teacher on my course was clear, thorough, and very friendly. I found the Strategy Book to give a good indication of the real test with very detailed and instructive explanations. Overall, the course has made me much more confident in my approach to answer HPAT questions.
