What score do I need to pass?

The salesperson exam consists of 100 national questions and 32 state-specific questions. The difficulty of each item on the examination for the “minimally competent practitioner” (MCP) has been previously evaluated. These judgments are averaged to determine the minimum passing score.

The broker exam national portion consists of 10 simulation problems and the state-specific portion is multiple choice with 40 questions. A minimum passing level (MPL) was established for the section using the scoring weights assigned to the options in that section and represents the level of performance expected of a “minimally competent practitioner.” The overall examination has an Information Gathering (IG) MPL and a Decision Making (DM) MPL, which represent the sums of the MPLs of all IG and DM sections on the examination. Your total raw scores must meet or exceed the MPL in both IG and DM to pass this examination.

You will receive your score immediately after you complete your exam.

How much time do I have to complete the exam?
