Interesting. Some teachers I know say that they ask people who are "ready to grow into the rank" to test for that rank.
My feeling is that if your teacher asks you to test, then you should. If you trust your teacher enough to help guide your training and practice, I would hope you can trust him/her enough to know when the appropriate time for you to test would be.
