Take the WSET level 2 quiz (nb – questions not taken from official WSET exam papers):

These questions are based on the topics taught in the WSET level 2 qualification in wine and spirits. The questions are not endorsed by the WSET and are not based on the WSET level 2 exam.

    Good for you. I wish you well. However, if you are in the industry you should be applauding what WSET is doing rather than being unimpressed. I am currently pursuing the Level 2 and plan to take the Level 3 after that. Why? Not because I am trying to be some know-it-all wine snob of the world. I am doing it because I am a wine consumer who enjoys good wine. Research shows that educated consumers are willing to and likely to spend more on products they know and understand when it comes to wine, spirits and other products generally associated with disposable income. This means educating consumers is good for the wine industry. I hope that masters work also teaches a little something about not alienating consumers and others who are not doing the Rhone Valley thing.

    There is always going to be someone who brings negativity to the table. If you read the disclaimer at the end of the quiz, it clearly states that the quiz is based on topics taught and are not based on the WSET 2 Exam. I aced the quiz too, however, I understand that that it is not representative of the WSET 2 rigor. I am currently pursuing the Level 2 and plan to take the Level 3 after that. Why? Not because I am trying to be some know-it-all wine snob of the world. I am doing it because I am a wine consumer who enjoys good wine. Research shows that educated consumers are willing to and likely to spend more on products they know and understand when it comes to wine, spirits and other products generally associated with disposable income. A very interesting fact for me is, since starting the course, I found out that much of what many “self-appointed wine experts” were telling me is load of BS.

    Your answer on Q10 contradicts what’s in the WSET book

    Yeah I would test out of Levels 1 and 2 , but I’m doing masters work on the wines of the Rhone Valley currently. Not really impressed by WSET 2 credentials frankly

    These questions are easy if you have a background in wine, often in the industry we assume that the average person knows much more than they really do.

    There is a Level I but it is so rudimentary as to be of little use, it’s really just a cash grab IMO. I work in the retail purchasing end of the business and when I see Level I on a resume all it indicates to me is that the respondent is interested enough to take some classes.

  • Nicolas Rezzouk

    These are easier than the real Level 2 IMO however, not that easy for someone who has never asked questions about wine. 99% of people have no idea about this stuff. Which is fine, but we should not forget what it is to not know about wine and not care that much.

    As per the title, this is Level 2. As logic follows, there is Level 1.

    I got 100%. But come on, this is basic stuff. Surely you can’t get a certificate for knowing this stuff. Talk about dumbing down. Is WSET Level II the lowest level? I hope so.
