BJCP Tasting Exam....I Passed!
« on: February 24, 2015, 03:12:06 AM »
Well...results are in and I passed the tasting exam. Scored an 80 which I feel good about.  Only a recognized judge as I only have 1 experience point.  Need to get some more experience points.  Anyways, just wanted to share the good news and say thank you, as being part of this forum helped my knowledge base.  Cheers!

An 80 with that little experience is outstanding.  Great job!

Just out of curiosity,  when did you take the test?
I set out running but I take my time.

Congrats!

80 is a great score since it allows you to take the written exam. It shows you have the ability to write a National score sheet. The nice thing is by the time you get the 20 points required to be National you will more than likely be writing even better score sheet!

That's exactly what I was thinking!  In my first exam, I only got a 75 which means I have to retake in order to eligible to become a National judge.  I had quite a few experience points by that time, so I was certified right away, but for you to score an 80 on the first go is awesome!

Congrats on that.

A score of 80 on the first shot is indeed an accomplishment.

I bet that you receive your results within the next three to four weeks.

80 is a great score-  Not many get 80, let alone first time out.
