Programme Details

Students taking this Entry Test are required to do an online written test (30 Multiple Choice Questions, 1 mark each) within 30 minutes. Students who pass this Entry Test with a score of 20 or above will be eligible to apply for the CertMod (Advanced Study in Wines). Those who fail this Entry Test will be encouraged to apply for the CertMod (Intermediate Study in Wines), or reattempt the Entry Test again (maximum 2 times) with additional tuition fee payment.
