4. Revised Exam Format with effect from May 2013**

As part of the ongoing review of RES examination to ensure the relevance and professional standards, CEA is now reviewing the exam syllabus; and will also be making changes  to the RES exam format from the May 2013 RES exam onwards. The exam format will see a new Case Study section with Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) being asked in relation to the scenarios painted. The objective is to place emphasis on interpretation and analysis skills in relation to one or two short practical case studies relevant to estate agency practice.

To incorporate the new Case Study section, the existing MCQs will be reduced from 70 MCQs in Paper 1 and 60 MCQs in Paper 2 to 50 MCQs for  both papers. In addition, the existing Fill-in-the-blank Short Answer Questions (SAQs) will be reduced from 15 to 10  in Paper 1 and introduced in Paper 2 as well. The revised exam format for RES exam is applicable for both Paper 1 and 2 and is as follows:

5. RES Paper 1 & 2**

a) RES Examination

  • RES is the new and only industry entry qualifying exams for Real Estate Salespersons.
  • With effect from MAY 2013, the RES Exam format will include a new Case Study in both Paper 1 and 2 in the form of Multiple Choice Questions. Both Paper 1 and 2 will adopt the same format as follows: 

b) Paper 1 (2½ hours)

Section A: 50 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) - 50 marks (1 mark each)   

Section B: 15 MCQs with reference to Case Study - 30 marks (2 marks each)

Section C: 10 Fill-in-the-blank Short Answer Questions (SAQs) - 20 marks (2 marks each)

c) Paper 2 (2½ hours) - Same format as Paper 1

The duration of the RES exam remains unchanged.

With effect from July 2011 RES examination, modular passing will be allowed. Candidates who have passed either Paper 1 or Paper 2 need to retake only their failed Paper from August 2011 RES examination onwards. Upon passing the remaining Paper, the candidate will be considered as having passed the RES examination and will be subsequently issued an RES Certificate. The candidate must submit the salesperson registration application through and with the support of a licensed estate agent within 2 years of the date of issue of the final results. Otherwise, the results will not be valid for registration purpose.

Candidates who failed both Papers will need to retake the RES exam as a fresh candidate; i.e. need to take Paper 1 and 2 in a single sitting in their next attempt. Modular passing will apply only if the candidate has passed one Paper. There shall be no retrospective consideration of results from earlier RES examinations taken from Jan to Jun 2011.

Important Note

There is no change to the examination requirement for RES course participants to pass the RES examination within 2 years from the date of issuance of the Certificate of Completion of RES Course. If they are unable to pass the remaining Paper within the 2-year timeframe, they will have to re-take the RES course and take the full RES examination i.e. both Papers 1 and 2.

6. Examination Passing Marks

Passing mark for each examination paper is 60% and is subject to review by CEA.

7. Examination Results Notification

Candidates who have taken the examinations will receive an email notification from CEA's appointed exam administrator informing them of their examination results 4 - 6 weeks after the examination.

8. Examination Results  

With effect from July 2011 RES examination, modular passing will be allowed. The results for July examination onwards will be in one of the following formats:

  • Pass (P)
  • Fail (F)
  • Pass Paper 1; Fail Paper 2 (P1 F2)
  • Fail Paper 1; Pass Paper 2 (F1 P2)
9. Appeals 

Candidates who like to appeal in their RES examinations results may apply as follows:
  • All appeals must be made in writing to CEA's Appointed Exam Administrator on prescribed forms within 7 working days from and including the day of release of assessment results
  • Candidates can only appeal for failed paper. 
  • An administrative fee (non-refundable) of $53.50 (inclusive of GST) per paper will be imposed. With effect from 1st January 2019, the fee will be revised to $64.20 (inclusive of GST).
  • Answer scripts will not be shown to Candidates and appeal outcome will be made known in writing within 14 working days from date of appeal submission

10. Required To Pass RES Exam Within 2 Years  

All RES course participants are required to pass the RES examination within 2 years from the date of issuance of the RES course completion certificate. Candidates with a partial pass in the RES examination are required to pass the remaining paper(s) within the 2-year timeframe. Should they fail to do so, the partial pass in the RES examination will not be valid and candidates will have to re-take the RES course before attempting the full RES examination again. 

11. Upon Passing RES Exam and Validity of RES Exam Result

Upon passing the RES examination, the candidate will be issued the RES examination certificate. If the candidate wishes to join the real estate industry as a salesperson, he/she must submit his/her salesperson's registration application through a licensed estate agent within 2 years from the month of the examination which he/she sat for and passed, failing which the examination results will no longer be valid for salesperson registration purposes. 

For example, if the candidate has passed the May 2016 RES examination, the validity of his/her RES examination results for his/her salesperson's registration application will be till 31 May 2018. This is the final date by which the candidate's registration application must be submitted by a licensed estate agent to CEA Licensing Division. Upon the expiry of the RES examination result, the candidate will need to retake the RES course and RES examination should he/she be interested to join the real estate agency industry as a salesperson.
