In addition to seats in prestigious schools and university admissions, Hong Kong also has another “competitive” quota – acquiring a spot for real estate examinations. Generally, you can sign up at 9 o’clock in the morning on the day of registration, but the slots are normally full within a few minutes. The real estate examination is organized by the Institute of Professional Education And Knowledge. The real estate exam is divided into 2 different exams – Estate Agent Qualifying Examination (EAQE) and Salesperson Qualifying Examination(SQE). For elaboration of the differences between EAQE and SQE, please refer to What is the difference between an estate agent and a real estate salesperson?
