Education Policies

Principles and government policies in real estate education.

Exam Policies

MREA exams are supervised by an invigilator who is responsible for ensuring the exam procedures and rules are followed. Students are required to review and sign the Admit to Exam Slip prior to writing any MREA exam. Individuals caught cheating during the exam will face an automatic failure on the exam and may face disciplinary action from The Manitoba Securities Commission.

Students must attain a final mark of 70 per cent (minimum) to successfully pass the exam.

Exam Results

Exam results are processed as soon as possible, and generally mailed/emailed to students within two weeks of their exam date, however. may take longer if written in a rural location.

Marks will not be released by telephone due to privacy protocol. Do not phone The Manitoba Securities Commission or Manitoba Real Estate Association for your examination results.


If a student does not pass their first examination, they have two additional opportunities to rewrite the examination for the corresponding course. There is a rewrite fee that must be provided to the association prior to the rewrite. If a student does not attain a passing mark on the third attempt, the student must wait one year from the date of the third exam to re-enroll in the program.

Rewrite examinations are worth 100 per cent with no credit for marks on previous examinations.

Examination rewrites are not permitted for the following courses: Salesperson Challenge, Salesperson Interprovincial, Broker Challenge, or Broker Interprovincial.


MREA is committed to providing an environment that is inclusive and free of barriers. Examination accommodation requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis to ensure equal opportunity for students to fully demonstrate their qualifications.

Examination accommodations are granted on an individual basis and are dependent on the nature and extent of the request, documentation provided and requirements of the examination. However, submitting a request does not guarantee receiving accommodation.
