Two Exams with Polley Associates and One State/National Exam
Each course, Real Estate Fundamentals and Real Estate Practice, by state law, must end with a supervised (otherwise known as “proctored”) exam. You must earn a score of 70 or better on each exam to pass.
Thousands of people take and pass these courses every year. You can too. If you do the required reading, complete the assignments, and pay attention in class (or online) you’ll find the learning enjoyable and the tests won’t be overwhelming.
What happens when I pass? Or worse… what if I fail?
Student requests for exam grades are not disclosed by phone or fax. We report grades via transcript only 1) to students in person, usually after showing suitable identification, 2) by U.S. mail, or 3) by e-mail to the address we have on record.
When a student passes the required course exams, a printable PDF transcript will be attached to an e-mail and sent within 14 business days after the exam date. Think of a transcript as a report card; it’s the document that tells the state you met or exceeded the courses’ minimum requirements. You will use the transcript when you formally apply to the state to take the third and final test, its licensing exam.
If a student fails the end-of-course exam (sometimes stuff happens, we know), a retake exam will be mailed to the student.
What happens AFTER I pass BOTH the Polley Associates course exams?
Once you successfully complete both courses (Fundamentals and Practice), Polley Associates will send you your transcripts and provide links and instructions on how to apply to take the state and national licensing exam. You must earn a score of 75 or better on the state/national exam to pass. The state/national licensing exam is currently administered by a state contractor.
