Booking In-Person Real Estate Exams in Ontario: Typical Dates, Times & Locations
When pandemic restrictions eased, Humber College re-introduced in-person exams in various locations throughout the province. Here’s why in-person exams are increasing in popularity and where you can find an exam centre for the real estate salesperson and broker programs.
Why Choose In-Person Exams?
- Eliminate Frustration with Proctortrack
The biggest complaint with Humber’s online exams is the requirement to use Proctortrack. While it’s a virtual exam proctoring system designed to prevent cheating, its use often leads to technical issues, privacy concerns and unnecessary stress. Despite continued complaints and countless frustrated students, Proctortrack is still the only online option for Humber real estate exams. In-person exams do not use Proctortrack. This allows you to focus solely on your exam without any added virtual proctoring anxiety.
- Enjoy a Controlled Environment
Taking an exam at home can present numerous distractions and is only possible if your room meets specific requirements. In contrast, in-person exams are conducted in a controlled environment, minimizing external disruptions and ensuring you have a quiet, focused space to complete your exam. No rearranging of furniture or artwork required!
- No Technology Concerns
Online exams require stable internet connections, compatible devices, software installations and an on-boarding process. In-person exams simplify the process signficantly—all you need is your Humber learner portal login and password. Say goodbye to worrying about sudden technical glitches or home internet hiccups disrupting your exam.
- Reduced Stress
Beyond academic stress, online proctored exams have been cited as significant sources of anxiety, impacting many students’ performance. When writing in-person, you can focus exclusively on the exam. You only need to bring yourself (and your ID). Unlike virtual exams, you are free to adjust your gaze, close your eyes or look out the window. Though minor, these freedoms can significantly improve focus, clarity and results.
