NEW! Exam Labs: MOCK EXAM INCLUDED with our D4

D4 Exam Labs

The WSET repeatedly states in their Examiners’ Reports that the two main reasons students fail diploma exams are: not completing the questions in time and failing to answer the specific question asked.

Taking mock exams will not only help you calm those nerves but give you the all-important experience of taking a timed exam and evaluating your work against high-scoring sample answers. Don’t let exam day be the first time you take a full test!

In this online workshop, you’ll have access to:

  • two (2) mock D4 tests modeled after real Diploma D4 exams
  • a grading rubric & two sample answers, one showing an answer that would achieve a ‘Pass’ score and the other showing an answer that would deliver a ‘Pass with Distinction’ score
  • This workshop will arm you with the experience and tools you’ll need to know what is expected of you, and to evaluate your writing so that you ultimately achieve exam success.
This ExamLab Mock Exam is included for students enrolled in D4 at Napa Valley Wine Academy, but also available for purchase separately here!
