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...?
I would practice doing formal beverage service with your right hand for the exam. Proper beverage service is done from the right, with your right hand. You should be doing proper beverage service in an examination. In real world situations, it is totally acceptable to pour with your left hand, but IMO, there is no excuse to pour with your left in an examination setting.
