New Jersey real estate Exam and Real Estate Broker Exam content
The general portion of the real estate exam is made up of 80 scored questions. About 10% of the scored questions on the general exams will involve math.

The sales and brokers exam also contain 5 pretest questions that are not counted towards the score. These questions are used to gather statistacal information for use of future exams. The pretest questions will look exactly like the other questions.

The New Jersey potion of the exam is made up of 30 questions for the salesperson Candidates and 40 questions for the Brokers Candidates. The exam also containts 7-10 pretest questions throughout the exam. These pretest questions are not identified and will not affect the score in any way.

Real Eestate Exam Procedures
Candidates should report to the test center 30 minutes before the examination
and check in with the test center administrator. (Candidates should allow themselves sufficient time to find the test center.) The candidate’s identification and other documentation will be reviewed and they will be photographed for the score report.
Candidates are required to review and sign a Candidate Rules Agreement form.
If the Candidate Rules Agreement is not followed and/or cheating or tampering with
the examination is suspected, it will be reported as such, and the appropriate action will be taken. The examination fee will not be refunded, the exam may be determined invalid, and/or the state may take further action.
Candidates will have an opportunity to take a tutorial on the PC on which the
examination will be administered. The time spent on this tutorial will not reduce
the examination time. The examination administrators will answer questions, but
candidates should be aware that the administrators are not familiar with the content of the examinations or with the state’s licensing requirements. Examination administrators have been instructed not to advise candidates on requirements for licensure.
Candidates may begin the examination once they are familiar with the PC. The
examination begins the moment a candidate looks at the first examination question.
Candidates will be given 4 hours to complete both the General and Statespecific
portions of the exam. Once the candidate completes one section of the exam,
responses can be viewed and/or changed. However, once the candidate proceeds to the next section of the exam, the previously completed section cannot be revisited. The examination will end automatically after the examination time has expired, and candidates will leave the test center with their official scores in hand.

What to bring to the New Jersy Real Estate Exam
All candidates must bring to the test center on examination day the following:
• Two (2) forms of current signature identification, one of which MUST be
government-issued and photo-bearing
• The confirmation number provided when the reservation was made
• Failing score report (if the candidate is retaking the examination)
• For Salespersons—Completed, stamped, and signed “School Certificate”
indicating the completion of 75 hours of prelicense education or a Certificate of
Examination Eligibility, indicating approval by the NJ Real Estate Commission to
take the examination
. • Broker candidates—Certificate of Examination Eligibility, indicating approval by
the NJ Real Estate Commission to take the examination
. • Two sharpened pencils
Candidates who do not present the required items will be denied admission to the
examination, considered absent, and will forfeit the examination fee.

How to find out the Score of the Exam
When candidates complete the examination, they will receive a score report marked “pass” or “fail.” Candidates who pass the examination will receive a score report that includes information on how to apply for a license.
Candidates who fail the examination will receive a score report that includes a numeric score and diagnostic information, as well as information about reexamination.
Reservations cannot be made at the test center.

How the Scoring works for the Real Estate Exam
The passing score of the examination is set by the New Jersey Real Estate Commission.
The general and state law portions are usually administered in multiple versions to
enhance security. To ensure that no individual has an unfair advantage or disadvantage by taking a particular version of the examination, the actual passing score of the various versions may be adjusted to accommodate minor fluctuations in the difficulty level of the questions on each version. The passing point for all versions, however, is reported as a score of 70*.
The reported examination scores can range from 1 to 100, but they are not to be
interpreted as the percentage or number of examination questions answered correctly.
With 70* as the passing score, any score below 70* indicates how close the candidate came to passing, rather than the actual number or percentage of questions answered correctly.

Retaking the New Jersey Real Estate Exam
The examination is divided into two sections: general and state law. Candidates
who pass one section of the examination and fail the other must retake the entire
examination. Candidates must wait 24 hours before contacting Pearson VUE to make a reservation to retake the examination. Reservations may
not be made at the test center.
