Big changes are coming to real estate education in North Carolina. On March 1st 2012 the North Carolina Real Estate Commission will change the way that students are tested at the state level. For over 20 years, the Real Estate Commission has written and maintained the state exam which has always been very specific to real estate practices in North Carolina.
Beginning in March, a national exam will be implemented. Consisting of 140 questions, the test
will have both the national and a state component. Final details such as the pass rate are still being worked out.
Students who are thinking of taking a real estate pre-licensing course should remember that unless you opt for a class that completes by the end of this year, you will be subject to taking the new exam.
Here at the Fonville Morisey Center for RE Education Studies, we are working very hard to prepare for these changes so that the classes that begin in January will have all of the new information that a student will need to be successful on the new state exam.
