What Score Do I Need On The New York Real Estate Exam To Pass?

The passing score of an examination was set by the New York Real Estate Commission  after a comprehensive study was completed for each examination.

The examination score is reported as a scaled score on a scale of 0-100. It should not be interpreted as the percentage or number of questions answered correctly on the examination. The passing point is reported as a score of 70 for the salesperson examination and 75 for the broker examination.

With a passing score of 70 or 75, any score below 70 or 75 indicates how close the candidate came to passing, rather than the actual number or percentage of questions the candidates answered correctly
