Re: Asking to Postpone Shodan Test?

There is a lot of time between now and November to work on the test so I wonder why you don't feel ready? Shodan is a big step, so maybe you can have a discussion with your Sensei about it. It's possible he wouldn't be too taken aback if you put it off but still you've got 6 months between now and then. If you don't think you are ready, then when will you be ready? If you have some reason why you would not be able to devote appropriate time to get ready for Shodan and you have a date when you will be ready to test then maybe your Sensei will accept that.
