The April and May 2017 Pearson Vue Real Estate Exam Pass Fail Performance Report in Real Estate
Thoughts from Andy Brown, the Best Real Estate Instructor in Orlando at The Climer School of Real Estate, the Best Real Estate School in Orlando.
I know I have not posted a blog in a few months so I wanted to let everyone know about the April 2017 in May 2017 Florida sales associate and real estate broker pass fail Exam Performance Summary report from Pearson Vue. This is the report that is given at every monthly Department of Business and Professional Regulation DBPR, Division of Real Estate DRE meeting to the Florida Real Estate Commission FREC. It is also exactly the way it has been for months and months. Here are the numbers:
2708 people took the state exam for a second or for a repeated time. Only 835 of them passed while 1870 failed. This is a 31% pass rate and a 69% fail rate.
In April 2017, 205 people took the Florida real estate broker exam for the very first time. 110 of them passed and 95 of them failed. This is a 54% passing rate and 46% failing rate.
188 people took the Florida real estate broker exam in April for a second or for a repeated time and only 61 of them passed while 127 of them failed. This is a 32% passing rate with a 68% failing rate.
Again I do not think these ridiculously low pass rates and high failure rates are an accident. I believe this is what the state of Florida wants.
In May 2017 3017 people took the Florida sales associate real estate license exam for the very first time. 1598 of them passed and 1419 them failed. This is a 53% passing rate with a 47% failing rate.
2776 people took the same exam for second or for a repeated time. Only 881 of them passed while 1895 of them failed. This is a 32% pass rate and a 60% fail rate.
253 people took the Florida real estate brokers license exam in May 2017 for the very first time. 146 of them passed while 107 of them failed. This is a 58% pass rate and a 42% fail rate.
219 people took the same exam for a second or for a repeated time. 95 of them passed and 124 of them failed. This is a pass rate of 43% and a failure rate of 57%.
These general statistics seem to be the same month after month after month. I have said many times, I don’t think this is accident, I think this is on purpose. I believe that if the state of Florida wanted more people to pass, then they would pass. We are all very lucky that Florida doesn’t want more people to fail because I believe they can make that happen.
It’s no secret that I believe that the examination focuses more on tricking you into wrong answers than it does on testing your actual knowledge. Additionally, they seem to force-feed you in your pre-license class information that is extremely unnecessary out there in real world and in your real estate career and profession. However, you are tested on it so I have to teach it to you.
So, here’s the challenge faced with new applicants: how do you sit through an unbelievably boring 60 hours class containing some of the driest and most boring material that exists while you are being force-fed with a firehose information that is only necessary one time to pass the state exam and that pretty much goes away from you soon as you pass your state exam?
The best answer is to come to the Climer school of real estate. If you look at our hundreds of five-star Google reviews, five-star Facebook reviews, and five-star Yelp reviews you will come to understand that we do things differently. We teach our students to pass the state exam. And we don't intimidate our students into giving us a good review just before they take their class test as one school infamously does. If you’re going to trust the school with your time and money to help you prepare for a life changing and career changing moment, you want to make sure that you are making the right decision.
There are a lot of low quality real estate schools out there that I can mention by name that only want your money or they view their school as a recruiting opportunity for their real estate company. This is not the Climer school real estate operates.
We don’t have an on-going, operational real estate brokerage, we are not trying to recruiting you, and were not trying to get every dollar we can from you. Our only concern is to help our students pass the Florida real estate exam, hopefully your first try. This is the focus of all of our amazing instructors; Lydia Pisano, Barbara Stone, and Jose Rodriguez.
Are you thinking about getting a real estate license and career change? Now is a fantastic time. Don’t waste your time and money.
