I just recently saw there there will be WSET 2 award course in my area. While I was on the WSET website I noticed that they have come up with a new format for WSET 2, basically excluding spirits. My focus is on wine so I feel that the new format would be best. Does anyone have any insight on the comparison between the old and new courses? I would really like to take the course this fall, but if the new format covers a substantial amount more material I could hold off.
I just took my WSET 3 exam a few weeks ago (I believe they’re reformatting the textbook for that level as well). I see that you’ve completed your CMS intro course, which is where I was when I started my WSET 3 course (and I’m pretty sure I barely passed my CMS intro exam).
I know this wasn’t your question, but my suggestion would be to explore skipping Level 2 if you can afford Level 3 (take a look at some of the practice questions online if you can find them, I think you’ll find you’re at a more advanced level). Some APPs require you take an entrance exam to skip level 2 but mine didn’t, told me I could do level 3 as long as I put the work in.
From what I understand Level 2 is pretty basic, not to mention pretty expensive if you’re willing to put the work in for Level 3.
