WSET 3 from CMS Introductory Level

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
