I completed my CMS Introductory level, but am now thinking of going along the WSET path, as I think it will better suit my overall objectives based on the research I have done between the two.
My question is - would it be best to go into Level 2 first, or does the knowledge I have from the CMS Introductory level sufficiently prepare me to start directly in Level 3? Looking for your advise. Thanks in advance !!
I have taken and passed the tests for both level 2 and 3, for WSET. I scored very high on all of the tests, including a 96% on level 2. I was surprised how much harder the level 3 test was, compared to the level 2. The level 3 test seemed to be 200% to 350% harder than the level 2 test. By extension, it seems safe to claim that the jump from level 1 to level 3 is between 300% to 450% harder. Rather than provide advice, I am simply going to provide these thoughts, if the might help in making your decision
Thank you! I appreciate the information. I fully expect the Level 3 to be significantly harder than even the CMS Introductory exam. I guess what I am really wondering is whether the content of Level 2 is the same or similar to CMS Introductory, to the point that I would get a bit bored or complacent and that my money and effort would be best served going straight into Level 3.
