A candidate must score at least 60% to pass each examination prescribed by the AMF. A candidate is considered to have failed an examination if he fails to comply with the instructions given during the examination session. However, a failure may be cancelled by the AMF where warranted by exceptional circumstances.

In the mortgage brokerage sector, an examination is valid for a period of 2 years from the date the candidate passes the first examination.

A candidate who fails an examination is entitled to rewrite that exam three times, provided that the minimum qualifications (training) are valid. The validity period for minimum qualifications training is two years as of the date the training was successfully completed.
