What is the Real Estate Salesperson Examination Format?

This article is an update from the original published on Jun 5, 2020.

As part of the policy review on the RES examination to ensure candidates possess the competency to practise in the estate agency industry, the RES examination format has been revised wef May 2013 to include a Case Study Section in both Paper 1 and Paper 2 in the form of multiple choice questions.

The objective is to ensure candidates are able to analyse and interpret the issues in a practice-oriented case study context.

The format of both Paper 1 and Paper 2 is as follows:

Section A 50 MCQs (50 marks) Section B 15 MCQs with reference to 1 or 2 Case Studies (30 marks) Section C 10 Fill-in-the-blank Short Answer Questions (20 marks)

Duration 2 ½ hours per paper

Notably, there is no change to the examination requirements for RES course participants to pass the RES examination, comprising two papers, within 2 years from the date of issuance of the RES course completion certificate.

For candidates with a modular pass in one paper of the RES examination, they are required to pass the remaining paper within the 2-year timeframe. Should they fail to do so, the modular pass in one paper will not be valid and candidates will have to re-take the RES course before attempting the RES examination (i.e. both Paper 1 and Paper 2) again.
