– Do participants get a diploma at the end of a Sud de France Master-Level Program?
At the end of a Master class session, students will have to pass a written exam. A passing score is 75 (out of 100) or better. A minimum of 85 is required for wine educators. Then, the participant will then receive the Master Level Certificate accredited by the Occitanie / Pyrénées-Mediterranée Regional Council.
– Is it possible to pass the exam after the Sud de France Master-Level Program and at home?
Yes. You have one full year from the end of the session to pass your exam, but additional fees will apply. The exam is online, with video cameras. If you obtain a passing score, you will receive the same certificate as those who pass the exam immediately after the course.
– What if a student registers for the exam, gets the book and attends the classes, but doesn’t sit the exam?
Sud de France Master-Level Program candidates have a full year to sit the exam. They are not compelled to test at the close of the lecture series. We ask that instructors allow these students to sit the exam at their establishment when it is next offered.
– How long does it take to study for the Sud de France Master-Level exam?
Successful past self-study candidates normally devoted an average of two months to preparing for the exam; candidates may require more or less time depending on existing knowledge and classroom or online program participation.
– What is the turnaround time for grading student exams?
Pass/fail letters and certificates are mailed out approximately 3 weeks after completing the exam.
