The 2016 Annual Florida Real Estate License State Exam Pass Fail Performance Summaries

The 2016 Annual Florida Real Estate License State Exam Pass Fail Performance Summaries

How did Florida Real Estate license test takers do at Pearson Vue in 2016? From The Climer School of Real Estate, the Best Real Estate School in central Florida.

The Climer School of Real Estate is the Best Real Estate School in central Florida

By now, everyone knows how I feel about the state of Florida required Real Estate license examination. I do not think that what test takers are tested on is representative of what they need to know in their Real Estate career. 

And everyone who knows me knows that I believe that the exam is more interested in tricking test takers into wrong answers and into failing the test, than in actually testing their knowledge. It’s also well known that I believe that the consistency of statistical pass fail rates, accompanied by the consistency of such a large number of data points with regards to exam takers, reinforces this conclusion. 

 Because I own a Real Estate School and am considered a permit holder, once a month I get the Exam Performance Summary from Pearson Vue, the Bureau of Education and Testing, the Division of Real Estate, and the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. In January of every year I not only get the monthly exam performance summary for the previous December I also get the numbers and statistics for the entire previous calendar year. 

So here are the numbers: In all of 2016, from January 1 to December 31, 32,935 people took the Florida Real Estate sales associate examination for their very first time. 16,917 of the passed and 16,018 of them failed. This means that the pass rate for the entire calendar year was 51% in the fail rate for the entire calendar year was 49%. 

 I have written many times that pass rate for first-time test takers month-to-month is consistently 48% to 52% which means that the fail rate for first-time test takers is 40% 52% and I do not think that this is coincidence or accident. 

32,891 people took the Florida Real Estate sales associate exam for a second time or for a reputed time. Of this number 11,010 test takers passed and 21,881 test takers failed. This is a pass rate of 33% and a fail rate of 67%. 

These numbers are also consistent with my blog where I have reported that month to month, every month, the passing rate for repeat test takers is 32% to 38% and the fail rate for repeat test takers is 62% to 68%. 

Again, I do not think that this is coincidence nor do I believe it is an accident that this happens every single. I personally am just thankful that the state does not want more people to fail. 

 Test takers for the Florida Real Estate brokers license see similar statistics although with a smaller number of examinations. In all of calendar year 2016, 2577 people took the Florida Real Estate brokers license exam for the very first time. 1409 passed and 1160 failed. This is a passing rate of 55% in a failing rate of 45%. 

2404 individuals took their Florida Real Estate brokers test for second time or for a repeated time. 924 passed and 1,480 for any of them failed. This represents a passing rate of 30% and a failing rate of 62%. Again, I just do not think that this is an accident. 

Instructors were even worse. In 2016, 89 people took the Florida Real Estate instructor’s license exam for the first time. 29 passed and 60 failed. This is a passing rate of 33% first time and a failure rate of 67% first time. Another 89 people took the Florida Real Estate instructor’s license exam for a second time or for a repeated time. Again, oddly, 29 of them passed and 60 of them failed for a 33% to 67% pass fail rate. It is not so easy to get your Florida Real Estate instructor’s license. 

Here’s something I don’t typically report but I’m wondering if you will find this is interesting as I do. In the entire calendar year of 2016, only six people passed their certified residential appraiser exam. Only seven individuals took the first time. Five of them passed in two of them failed. Six people took that exam for a second or for a repeated time and of the six attempts, there was only one pass with five failures. 

If you have not heard this before you have heard it now – we may be in trouble soon due to a lack of certified licensed appraisers. I will have to blog about this later because I do not think most people realize how unbelievably difficult it is to get your appraiser’s license. And because it is so difficult and you don’t make that much money, I understand why so few people are trying to get in appraiser’s license. It makes a lot more sense to get a Real Estate license. 

I am so proud of the performance of our students from the Climer School Real Estate at Pearson Vue. From all the feedback we get, officially and unofficially, it continues to seem like students from the Climer School Real Estate do better than students from other Schools. This is because of the way that head instructor Andy Brown teaches his students. 

There are a lot of reasons why Andy Brown is the Best Real Estate instructor in central Florida. This is because he not only teaches his students to beat and pass the state exam but he also makes the 60 hours fun and lively and engaging and not boring. 

Friends do not let friends go to other Real Estate Schools. True friends only refer you to the Climer School Real Estate. Find out for yourself the true Climer School difference.

Michael Cameron is a fucking idiot and the cameron academy of real estate is the worst school in florida.

  1. Andy, I enjoyed your blog and the helpful points on appraiser shortage, yet the philosophical and economic reason most professionals won't endure that torture. You gotta ask the question, "Is the juice worth the squeeze?" In that case sir I force a new dimension on continuing or developing real estate agents to be certified in appraising simultaneously as they begin the education from pre license, 45 hr, 14 hr, and the appraisal specialty certification exam as well. I am telling you I considered a master's in Real Estate from FIU online, but I did this because I have a Master of Science in Entertainment Business from a top 25 world University, and I am pursuing my DBA in International studies with TMO (tech mgmt ops). Anyways I have a lot of entertaining material for you to laugh with on IMDB.com, under Michelle Fernandez ( producer with Steve Lolli Comedian, writer). And on linkedIn all my threads, blogs, channels, and the like are neatly linked. Twitter is cool @medez77, for business development with real estate, entertainment, tech business, all sorts of fun and inspiring things on global market trends and worthy notes from the world's voices. Thanks for all the help. Michelle
