PSI Testing Center — Exam scores
I have taken the PSI Real Estate State Exam 3 times.
I studied from a book that said "Pass the Real Estate Exam the First Time." I studied the material, on all the examinations I took I scored from 85 to 100%. When I took the exam, most of the questions in the exam were not in the material that I studied. Especially the questions that they ask about Miss Utility. Even at that, I still don't believe that I missed 10 questions. I spent countless hours of studied time, and also have previous experience as a real estate agent. They tell you that you have 40 questions on the test, but in taking the test there was 50 questions. When I talked with PSI they informed that the additional 10 questions are not counted against you, and that these questions are asked to get more test questions. But expecting to test on 40 questions, and then there are 50, kind of throws you off a little bit. My first examination I didn't pass, which cost $60.00.
I asked if I could retake the exam. I was informed that I could do it as a walk in the next day at 12:30pm, but it would costs another $60.00, and an additional $15.00 that had to be in a money order. But I shouldn't make it out to anyone. So, that afternoon, I did get a money order for 15.00, left it blank, (paid PSI over the phone the $60.00) and the next day arrived at the PSI Testing Center. The evening and morning before the test, I restudied, also found a resource on the internet on Real Estate Regulations that consists of 84 pages. Studied this also, along with the real estate book that says pass the first time. Arrived at the exam center to take my exam for 12:30pm as a walk in. As I was checked in I was told to make the money order out to PSI.
I took the exam, double checked my answers, and was confident that I had passed. They have a survey at the end of the exam that you take before you get your test score. So being confident I had passed, even though unsure about the Miss Utility questions asked, that where probably 2 questions, I did the survey, gave an excellent score. Ended the test, and didn't pass again. The proctor signed me out, as he did, he wasn't able to choose my name, because an error came up. So the other proctor signed me out, and I informed her, that something wasn't right, because I know that I didn't miss 10 questions. This time I missed it by 2.
I contacted PSI to let them know that there was an error in scoring my exam. I was told that if I would have made a comment on any of the questions than they would be able to do something. That there were no adjustments that could be made. In PSI's bulletin information, it state's, should there be error, which is "rarely". That scores would be adjusted. Meaning that it does happen sometime.
After, awhile I cooled down. My husband encouraged me to retake the exam. This online exam company did cover the material on the exam. So I studied that, along with the regulations that I found on the internet, that also covered material on the exam. I took the exam until I scored 100%. But, still no information on Miss Utility. I did find information about Miss Utility on the internet. Studied that. But, still unsure if it was enough information to cover any questions on the test. So, I took the exam again. Didn't pass. Missed it by 1. On this same computer, the proctor was not able to print out my score, the other proctor had to. I noticed that these were different proctor's than before. I asked what happen to the other proctors, the gentlemen gave me info and stated that they were a husband and wife team. I also informed the proctor, that I know that I didn't miss 10. He encouraged me to try again, since I just missed it by one. I was really upset. Because, I double checked my answers, and knowing in my heart, that I didn't miss 10 questions on the test.
In regards to the questions. in the prep exam book, that I have, it states that you have 3 banking business days, to deposit an earnest money check, but in the other information, that I have, it says 5 banking business days. I went with the 5 banking business days, which seems to be correct according to one of the questions on the 3rd test that I took. $195.00 have been spent on a test that costs $60.00.
I have also sent an email to the President, in regards to this issue.
