The lead up to the Master of Wine Stage One Assessment was marked, for me at least, with a lot of stress. There seemed to be an endless amount of ground to cover, the questions for the theory part of the assessment being drawn from any of the last ten years' worth of exams. What's more, the presence of a compulsory question among the three we would be asked meant that we really felt we had to learn EVERYTHING. Of course, we (well, at least I) couldn't do that, and was relying on a certain amount of luck.
