    Default as a guide

    Dear Friends,

    Suppose you are doing a course because you want to be a guide. After a successful exam can I say:


    I passed an exam as a guide?


    (because if you pass an exam AS a guide, it means that you are already a guide - before pasing the exam)

    I don't think this is a standard expression in this context: '...as a guide'; because the information is not clear. Though in informal speaking such expressions may be possible.

    I suggest:
    "I've passed the exam; I'm now a guide."
    OR
    "I am a guide now; I've passed its exam successfully."
    OR
    someone may suggest a better one!
