Should I Pay to Review My Exam?
Pearson VUE offers an option to pay to review your most recent exam attempt.
Since the state exam pulls from such a large pool of questions, you are unlikely to see the same questions again. You also are not allowed to take any notes. Therefore, we do not recommend that you pay to review your exam.

The pass rate for first time real estate exam takers throughout the entire state of Florida typically averages 50%.
