Re: Ethical questions before Shodan exam
Unless you're on death's door and don't expect to live much longer take some time off. Heal up and test when you're healthy. It's just a rank. And hopefully if you hang around long enough eventually you'll see the details of when such and such a rank was awarded are incidental to the bigger picture. I blew a knee right during the Friday night practice preparing for my shodan test on that Sunday. Sat out for a quite a while and wasn't able to test for a year. I partially tore the acl on the other knee right before my sandan. That set that test back another year or so I think (don't really remember now). But that's the point -- if you're in this for the long term focus on getting healthy. Then do your best when you are.
