RES Examination

All RES course participants are required to pass the RES examination within 2 years from the date of issuance of the RES course completion certificate. Candidates with a partial pass in the RES examination are required to pass the remaining paper(s) within the 2-year timeframe. Should they fail to do so, the partial pass in the RES examination will not be valid and candidates will have to re-take the RES course before attempting the full RES examination again.

Upon passing the RES examination, the candidate will be issued the RES examination certificate. If the candidate wishes to join the real estate industry as a salesperson, he/she must submit his/her salesperson’s registration application through a licensed estate agent within 2 years from the month of the examination which he/she sat for and passed, failing which the examination results will no longer be valid for salesperson registration purposes.
For example, if the candidate has passed the May 2016 RES examination, the validity of his/her RES examination results for his/her salesperson’s registration application will be till 31 May 2018. This is the final date by which the candidate’s registration application must be submitted by a licensed estate agent to CEA Licensing Division. Upon the expiry of the RES examination result, the candidate will need to retake the RES course and RES examination should he/she be interested to join the real estate agency industry as a salesperson.
