CEHA, The 2008 Round Starts

The Law Paper

CEHA’s Paper 1 (Law of Real Property) was just a couple of hours ago. The venue for this paper in this intake was in Anglo Chinese JC (ACJC). I had my first go (and hopefully last on it)

It wasn’t exactly too tough.

My advice: Don’t always assume that the multiple choice questions (MCQs) would be any easier than those essay questions. You have two MCQ questions and 6 essay questions. Go through all of them and scribble some notes with a pencil on the question paper before deciding on which to start.

I’ve chose 1 MCQ and 4 Essay Questions. It’s easy to attempt the calculation questions; You write lesser on explanations too. lol. We’re allowed to bring the question papers home, and if anyone wants a copy of it, you can give me a buzz anytime.

It’s sad to know that with such an accredition being made compulsory by 2009, older generation agents might have problems or even wouldn’t be able to get this papers without minimum Ordinary Level credits. Well this is Singapore, high service standards after all.

About CEHA

It is conducted by a Board of Examiners, which comprises of officials from the IRAS and representatives from Singapore Institute of Surveyors and Valuers (SISV) and Institute of Estate Agents (IEA)
