Resitting your WSET exams

In the unlikely event that you fail your WSET exam (at Northern Wine School, we have an excellent record), you are able to re-sit.

We can organise this for you no matter where you studied for the exam that you didn’t pass. Please note: you cannot re-sit a WSET exam that you have already passed.

The additional advantage of organising your re-sit through Northern Wine School is that we give you access to our exclusive WSET study guides, uniquely developed to aid your WSET revision and consolidate your learning. Matching your WSET course chapters, our guides offer mock exam questions, practice tests and quizzes and supplementary revision resources. All designed to help you pass your WSET exams.

How does it work?

You need to demonstrate that you have already taken a course – we will ask for the name of your course provider, the location and your student number – before we are able to register you for your re-sit.

Once we have established that you can re-sit the exam, we will contact you to determine how and when you’d like to take it. The following options are available:

Useful to know

We need a minimum of 15 working days notice to book your re-sit
We are unable to refund the fees once paid (see T&Cs) as WSET charges us once the papers are dispatched. (Fifteen days for Manchester exams and five days for online.)


As well as access to our Study Guides, you can also contact us for help and advice.
