CAO needs to clarify medicine results 'test'

As a Leaving Cert student who has applied for medicine, I deem it necessary to draw attention to the current situation affecting medicine applicants.

Approximately 3,000 students sat the HPAT aptitude test last February, which is compulsory for all medicine applicants and worth a potential 300 points out of a total of 860. We are due to receive these results in June.

Last Friday, HPAT results appeared on students' CAO accounts, my own included, more than one month prematurely. This naturally prompted a frenzy of activity online, and the results were removed several hours later.
