PSI COMPUTER TESTING SYSTEM

The General and State Specific examinations are administered on a personal computer. Before you start your examination, an introductory tutorial to the computer and keyboard is provided on the computer screen. The time you spend on this tutorial, up to 15 minutes, DOES NOT count as part of your examination time. Sample questions are included following the tutorial so that you may practice using the keys, answering questions, and reviewing your answers. After you have entered responses on the exam, you will later be able to return to any question(s) and change your response, provided the examination time has not run out. Your score will be given to you immediately following completion of the examination. Students must obtain a score of 75% on both the national and state portions of the exam to pass the PSI real estate exam.
