Hi. I'm looking for advice on how to move forward from this set back. I just took the intro exam and failed. I felt that I had done enough to at least get a 60% or more. I guess I didn't. That's not the part I'm most upset about. I paid (like all of us did) the $595 for the course and test. When I didn't get called that I passed, I went to the MS and asked if I could at least know my score. All 4 that I had asked said that they weren't allowed to give me my results. I feel like the purpose of the course and hopefully the guilde is to promote wine knowledge and better prepare to sell and share wine. So how am I to know where I went wrong if I am not told. Just asking if this is common
It's part of the process. I failed Advanced 2x while dropping a tray of champagne flutes not once, not twice, but three times during my service portion the first time while spilling champagne on MS's. It happens, you'll get through it, and be better for it.
Now you know what the exam looks like, how the questions are organized, and better where the holes in your knowledge are. Self reflect and think what you really need to work on, take a break and then go back in 6 months and crush it. Everything you need to know to pass the intro exam is in the coursebook given with it. If you study and know all that information cold, you'll be good.
I appreciate your advice.. good luck on your endeavors as well!
