Online Exams for Level 1 and 2 Courses 

WSET has introduced computer-based testing via remote invigilation

For the first time, IWEG will be able to offer online examinations for online WSET Level 1 and 2 courses through a remote invigilation service.This means that IWEG students can continue their learning wherever they are without having to wait or travel to complete the exam in person.

It also means that those who should have sat examinations in recent months but have been prevented from doing so due to the pandemic can complete their qualification online. We will contact these students about arranging their examination very soon.
