  • If you receive a letter indicating that you have failed an exam, you have the opportunity to retake the exam twice within one year of the date of the original exam. If you fail the re-exam twice, you are then required to re-take the course before the examination may be taken again.


Equivalency Credit Without Course:
To receive the equivalency credit, do you have to complete the course and pass the exam, or can you challenge and pass the exam only, without completing the course?
The requirement is that a general Candidate whose principal place of business is outside of the United States has to pass the examination associated with the International Equivalency Course: General. You are not required to complete the course. If you pass this examination, you will be deemed to have satisfied the Level I education requirement for the MAI designation. However, the Admissions Committee of the Appraisal Institute highly recommends completing the course prior to taking the exam, as it may increase the exam success rate.
