    Anyone else here in the real estate career field? I decided to pursue real estate late last year. I finished my real estate licensing course last week and scheduled my state test for today. I failed my test by ONE QUESTION!!! I'm so incredibly frustrated. I needed 77/110 questions to pass the exam, and I answered 76 correctly. As weird as it sounds, it would be a lot less upsetting if I failed harder. The fact that I was one question away from passing is tormenting me. It's $47 every time I go back to take the test. I'm going back in a few days. I just needed to vent. Have you ever needed to take an important exam and just barely failed?

    No, but most professions have specific tests. At least yours was only $47. The worst test I ever took was the FE exam (and I am sure the PE will be harder). That exam was 8hrs long and cost north of 200 per attempt. Thankfully I passed on my first time

    I felt like a monkey could pass the one in WI. No offense. I would imagine we have less stringent laws here though.

    Did you just walking off the street and take it or had you done some sort of education before?

    There's nothing after real estate so you may as well try again :D

    I do feel your pain ... I took the notary exam here in Louisiana in December and failed it, also, by one question. I don't feel bad though .. out of the 598 people who took the exam state-wide only 69 passed it and that included people taking 1 or more sections they failed in previous exams. According to the the state, 5% of those taking the exam the first time passed it and the other 5% were retakers.
