Left handed service for Certified Service Exam

I am a strong left handed server, hold the try with my right hand, and old habits die hard.  Is it more important to be comfortable and just focus on keeping my body language as open as possible in Certified service portion of the exam or suffer a potential slip of champagne glasses and attempt to hold the tray in my opposite hand in keeping with court standards?  I have a friend who dropped glasses and failed service once for this and DID pass by being a left hander.   I have my exam in the next week and am very curious if anyone thinks this is JUDGED HARSHLY...?

  • Im left handed, and learned to pour right handed for the certified exam.The tray work was more of the issue, but I felt it was best to do so as I plan to take higher level exams and want to be prepared. What points you miss in the certified might not fail you, but they might at the advance level. Every point counts. In your situation, a week out, go with what you feel comfortable with. Confidence is important. Good luck, you got this. Let us know how you do. 

    FYI - dropping a glass doesn't disqualify you either, but you would rather not....
