OSCP vs CRT

I've recently earned the OSCP cert and have begun to work toward Crest Registered Tester (CRT). Does anybody here have experience of sitting both exams?
I've heard from some that if you have OSCP then CRT is pretty easy.
Essentially you have to do the CREST CPSA Exam and then pay £100 to get the CREST CRT without the need to do the CRT exam. The CPSA exam is rubbish in my opinion, it's really broad in terms of it's content, not many study materials and the technology within the syllabus is outdated. It's multiple choice but not really hard, it's just hard to know when your ready for the exam.
In Progress: CCSP, AZ-500
OSCP may be harder than CRT, but CREST do have higher level exams that are more difficult
However, CRT going to expire in Feburary 2021 next year.
What will be the strategy to take CRT exam this time round?
CREST has strict NDAs that disallows any discussion about exam details. Basically, the practical exam is not difficult if you have been practising and understand the syllabus at https://www.crest-approved.org/examination/registered-tester/index.html
The other strategy is to take higher level CCT exam.
