I am in a moral dilemma, and I wanted to get feedback from this community.
My fiancee and I both just took the Advanced Sommelier Exam last week in Portland for the first time and did not pass. We knew going into it that passing would be difficult, but we both are very excited to try again in the future, now that we know what it's like.
That said, we are not planning to try to sit again until 2021, due to wedding planning all next year. My dilemma is that now that the CMS changed how to apply and who gets into the Advanced Exam, would it be wrong of me to sign up to take the Knowledge Assessment to gauge where I am in my studies, knowing full well I am NOT going to take the exam next year and that if I were offered a spot, I would decline it?
I'd like to get some thoughts on this matter. Thank you.
If you really want to gauge where you are in your studies it would be best to ask for feedback From your test from Shayn Bjornholm You can email him and set up a phone appointment and he will go over all the parts of your test with you. It help me tremendously after my first failed attempt.
