Is there a threshold for the real estate examination?
There are no thresholds when it comes to partaking in the real estate exam; your nationality, age, education, work experience, and professional qualifications do not matter when it comes to applying for the real estate exam. As long as one can afford the exam fee, even a 3-year-old child can take the exam. Because taking the exam and getting a passing result is just one of the licensing conditions. Passing the exam does not mean successfully obtaining a license. Passing the exam does not mean that you will be able to successfully apply for a license. Passing the exam and applying for a license are two different things.
As for the conditions to apply for a real estate license, you need to refer to: The real estate examination is not held by the Estate Agent Authority? 5 tips for entering the industry.
Although there are no restrictions on qualifications and experience of the exam takers, there are some policies in place to prevent students from abusing the exam slots.
Students can take the exam as long as they meet the following requirements:
- Have not passed the same subject in the past 12 months, up until the day before applying for the EAQE/SQE exam
- To apply for EAQE, you cannot hold a valid / expired real estate agent license within the past 24 months
- In order to apply for SQE, you cannot hold a valid / expired real estate agent or salesperson license within the past 24 months
- Applicants for SQE cannot take more than one SQE exam in the same month
For details, please refer to: http://www.eaa.org.hk/Portals/0/Sections/Exam/2021/Handbook/CBE_HB_eng.pdf
In other words, as long as you do not hold the relevant real estate license or have not passed the relevant examinations at present or within the last 24 months, you can participate in the examination.
