MREA exams are supervised by an invigilator who is responsible for ensuring the exam procedures and rules are followed. Any individual caught cheating during the exam will face an automatic failure on the exam and may face disciplinary action from The Manitoba Securities Commission.

The exam is three hours in length, however, you may leave once you have completed your exam.

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

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

Exam results will be emailed if students provide permission and verify their current email address, if included on the required Admit to Examination Slip.

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. The fee to rewrite an examination is $200 (plus GST) payable to the association prior to the examination 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.

Scheduling and Rescheduling Exams

Students electing to write exams in Winnipeg are required to call the MREA office at 204.772.0405 to schedule an exam. MREA typically hosts examination sessions weekly on Tuesdays from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., however, there are exceptions to these dates. When scheduling exams, please refer to the Examination Schedule provided to you upon enrollment. Students cancelling a scheduled exam within 24-hours of the scheduled exam time will be charged a short-notice cancellation fee of $25 plus GST.
Students electing to write exams at one of the approved rural examination centres are required to first contact the local invigilator to schedule an exam. Once an exam date has been selected, students are required to advise MREA staff of the scheduled exam date and location. MREA requires, at minimum, two weeks’ notice of scheduled rural exams to allow sufficient time for delivery of the exam.
Students residing outside of Manitoba may write their exam at an approved invigilation center in located in Canada. For more information on approved invigilation centers in Canada, contact the MREA education department at 204-772-0405 or Jane Walker at jwalker@mrea.mb.ca.

Students found to have left a cell phone on during the exam, will have their exam confiscated, will receive an automatic fail, and will be required to reschedule and pay a rewrite fee. In addition, the automatic fail will count towards the maximum number of examination writings allowed. We recommend students leave prohibited items in their vehicle to ensure no disturbance is caused during the writing of the examination.

The module program examinations and RLE examinations are closed-book; encyclopedias and course materials are not permitted. Students using any course materials when writing a module or RLE examination, will have their examination confiscated, will receive an automatic fail, and will be required to reschedule and pay a rewrite fee. In addition, the automatic fail will count towards the maximum number of examination writings allowed.

If a student is displaying behaviour that is a disturbance to other students, the invigilator will provide the student two warnings to stop the behaviour. If the student continues the behaviour beyond the second warning, the invigilator will confiscate the student’s examination, the student will receive an automatic failure, and will have to pay for and schedule a rewrite examination.

Students are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to their scheduled examination session. Students arriving after the examination session has begun, will not be permitted to write their examination, will be charged a short-notice cancellation fee of $25 plus GST, and will need to reschedule their examination.

Examination seating arrangements (when writing in Winnipeg) are determined prior to the start of the examination, and are based on the type of examinations being written during the session. Students are directed to take a seat at a location which indicates the corresponding examination to be written. Students are not permitted to move examination place cards to different locations in the examination room.

Office copies of reference encyclopedias for use during the examination are available at the examination centre. Student’s writing an “open book exam” may pick up these materials at the time of obtaining their examination from the invigilator.

Students may be excused to use the washroom but are not permitted to use electronic devices or to exit the building.

Students must review and sign the required Admit to Examination Slip, which provides MREA the authority to email examination results directly to students upon completion of processing.

The front cover sheet of the examination is the only place where a student’s name should appear; do not write or indicate your name elsewhere on the examination.
