Exam Options for Online Students


If you are in or have just completed your WSET online course you may be starting to plan your final exam. Wine Plus+ gives two options for online students to sit their exam.

Online Course Exam Options

You will have the option to either sit the exam with a scheduled in-class course or via Remote Invigilation ($45 fee).

1) In Class:  You can sit the exam with any level 1, 2 or 3 class in any of our locations. You can look at all the upcoming course dates here to see when the classes are taking place. Please book 25 days in advance. To book your in-class exam email rhys@wineplus.ca with the class exam date that you would like to sit the exam.

2) Remote Invigilation: Alternatively, you can sit the exam through Remote Invigilation. Remote exams cost an extra $45 due to the individual invigilation costs. Remote exams must be booked with Wine Plus+ 25 days in advance and can be at any time you like (except between 10:30pm and midnight UK time). Please see info below on what remote invigilation is and if it works for you.
