When OREA came a private vocational career college, academic prerequisites were established as a prerequisite for admission. There are three ways of meeting the academic admission requirements:
1. An Ontario high school diploma.
2. An equivalent to an Ontario High School diploma.
– includes a post secondary diploma from another province or country;
– some other odds and ends (contact OREA)
3. Passing the OREA Real Estate College Admissions Test with a mark of 50%.
According to OREA:
“The OREA Real Estate College Admissions Test consists of 50 real estate focused multiple choice questions which test basic English comprehension and mathematics. A minimum mark of 50% is required to pass. A real estate background is not a pre-requisite for the test.”
This is a test of basic English and Math up to grade 12. It includes English grammar, basic calculations (multiplication, division, percentages). The purpose is to ensure that applicants have the basic math literacy, language skills and learning prerequisites necessary to complete the OREA program. (The OREA program requires competency in real estate math skills.) It is a three hour test that is composed of 50 questions. The fee to take the test is approximately $50.
At the present time, OREA does not provide a sample test.
In order to take the test you must:
First, set up an account with OREA;
Second, make an appointment to take the OREA Real Estate College Admission Test.
