Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi @Abhay-Jhaveri ,

As per the "Getting Ready" document for the remote exam:

https://learn.redhat.com/t5/Certification-Resources/Getting-Ready-for-your-Red-Hat-Remote-Exam/ba-p/... 

Webcam: One external webcam with at least a 1m cable.

The answer is clear, yes you can take exam with 1 external webcam.

As for your ticket questions, the best is you follow up on the ticket you raised, and ask for the clarifications you need.

Hi,

EX407V27K still does not show the remote option , despite it being listed in the "Ways to test" page. Can this be checked.

Regards,

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi,

I just have one question if anyone can answer, please do. Is it mendatory or optional to enter a certification ID while scheduling your exam? On exam scheduler page, there are two options, one for phone number and other for certification ID. I have a certification ID, should I enter it or should I not. will it change anything if I don't?

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi @PraveenMishra 

In fact if you put the certificate ID and you pass the exam, the certificate will be added to that exam ID, let's say the ID is 1234.

The next time you pass a certificate and you specified ID 1234, that certificate will also be added to that ID.

It's used for example when you verify a certified professional:

https://rhtapps.redhat.com/verify/?certId= 

You would type that ID 1234, that will show the 2 exams.

 

If you don't specify an exam ID, a  new one will be generated, say 5678. You pass the new exam, it will be associated to 5678.

 

It's possible to ask support to attach that new certifcate to the same certificate ID, by contacting the support team:

https://rhtapps.redhat.com/comments/ 

That way, when you use the verify a professional link, you will see all at once. Having said that it's much easier to remember to put the same certificate ID!

Cheers,

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Dear All,

I am trying the bootable USB and since now I haven't been successful.
I have a MacBook Pro running macOS Catalina v10.15.6 and I have prepared the bootable USB drive following the instructions in the pdf file Getting Ready for your Red Hat Remote Exam_12_Aug_20.pdf ‏2201 KB
Immediately after starting my PC, by pressing the Option key I am able to access the bootable disk. I select the EFI boot icon for the USB and I get a menu where I can select the Red Hat Remote Exam. I do the selection, and after few lines appear on the screen for the boot, the screen is left blank. I notice a blue streak at the bottom, before the screen blanks out.
I have built the bootable USB twice and in both cases I get the same result.
I appreciate some help. Thanks in advance.

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi, I just have a followup question on one question for FAQs:

Capture.PNG

What if there is a network outage after 30 minutes of exam start. And what if that is resolved in 2-5 minutes or less than 30 minutes, can we resume the exam or what happens after that? If your answer is we can resume the exam, then would that be same process as launching the exam?(like booting into the USB and launching the exam? Please clarify.

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi @PraveenMishra ,

I think we have to keep in mind that there can not be a rule for every type of incidents and covering every problem which can occur, especially on the candidate side.

By choosing the Remote Exams option, as candidates, we are somehow responsible for our setup. That means that we can't expect Red Hat to have a solution or cover for each type of problems related to our setup. 

All of the Red Hat certification exams I attempted, either on the "kiosk" environment in a training center, or on this Remote Exam environment were rather difficult and the time limited. I'm trying to avoid any disappointement on the side of anyone who is not able to have a confortable setup as per the requirements (alone in a room, stable network connection, etc..):

https://learn.redhat.com/t5/Certification-Resources/Getting-Ready-for-your-Red-Hat-Remote-Exam/ba-p/... 

I think that would indicate that the candidate was not ready...And probably there should be a better method of exam delivery, for example the one in training centers, using the Kiosk computer.

Also, to be answering we would have to define the type of network interruption. Short ones, like a few seconds, minutes, are usually covered by the Remote Exam Live environment, which is displaying a "Network interruption" screen and is able to automatically reconnect when the situation is fixed. That happened to me once during an exam, after a few seconds interruptions it went back. For longer interruption, the proctor will see and make a decision based on all the elements at the time of the incident.

Again, I want to reiterate that "Getting Ready" requires the candidates to meet with the requirements.

Finally, many have tried these Red Hat Remote Certification Exams worldwide and it worked for most of them. That should give you some level of confidence.

Enjoy your exam!

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi,

No, and embedded webcam is not sufficient, there is a clear requirement:

Webcam:​ One external webcam with at least a 1m cable.

Source:

https://learn.redhat.com/t5/Certification-Resources/Getting-Ready-for-your-Red-Hat-Remote-Exam/ba-p/... 

I advise you to read that document carefully, there is a lot of information to get ready.

Cheers,
