All the details aren't finalized yet but some info is here: http://www.bjcp.org/docs/newexam.pdf
I wish there was some consistency/policy in place for informing entrants if they made it to the second round. Some regions have it marked on the score sheet, someone else said they received emails of people advancing, the Seattle area hasn't revealed who is advancing. I don't mind waiting for the big announcement but I think everyone should be on the same footing, either everyone finds out with the scoresheets or nobody finds out with the scoresheets.
I have one beer I was considering re-brewing and if I knew it advanced I would find time to do it but for the most part I've decided not to brew for another couple weeks till after my BJCP test. I need to be studying rather than brewing.
