I know a lot of you are frustrated with the closures of test centres and cancellations of exams and Sims. The hope would be that the Tri-Parties com up with an online version but that could take some time. I can honestly say this COVID-19 is effecting all even those that have completed the course. I applied to RECO on Monday for my licence and if they don’t grant it by Friday I will be in limbo as well as many of the real estate boards are also shutting down. I would have suggested to start interviewing with brokerages but they are also closing down. So all I can suggest to those waiting is the following.
if your in the following....
C1- read the course fully and you should be fine if you understand the content. I found the exam not overly difficult.
C2- read the course fully. Yes it is massive and feels like it will never end, but it does. This1 you need to know the differences between things. Many learners have either had no math questions or just a basic one.. PassIt is highly suggested
C3- read the course fully. You really need a good understanding in this one. They test you on a lot of the minor details and you need to know the differences between things like condo’s, road allowances ect. You also need to know and understand an APS. Many learners have had no math or 1 basic math question. PassIt is highly recommended.
Simulation session 1- You don’t need to worry about this And don’t even really need to study before hand. They go through everything in class. There is a test on day 2 with 9 questions and a test on day5 with 41 questions. Each question is worth 2 points. If you really wanted to study, practice writing a custom clause, google search OREA forms explained and look at the definitions of the clauses. This will help prepare you for the real world as well.
C4- read the entire course. Yes it is a long 1 as well, very boring and very repetitive. This I and many others found to be the easiest of them all. If you read all of the content and maybe do the 375 quizzes a second time you should be fine.
Simulation session 2- currently on hold and not ready to launch. See RECO’s message on the Humber web site.
C5- 2 modules with a total of 19 lessons. Nothing to worry about no exam.
I never had the benefit of PassIt for my studies (many have benefited from them and would not have passed without them) as it was never ready so I could only read the course and study with the quizzes from within the modules
In closing I just want to say, these are just my thoughts and perspective on the course. Everyone learns at a different level so please use you own judgment when it comes to your understanding of the material And study habits.
Good luck to all, practice social distancing and be safe.
