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

Hi @binyam ,

It is indeed very hard to find free slots in many testing centers, the pandemy situation is still having consequences worldwide.

Please have a look at the scheduling tool. I am not sure that your retake would be visible at this point in time. Having said that, the selection for taking an exam either "kiosk" base (in a testing center) and "Remote" based (Remote Exams) should be visible in the scheduling tool.

Please check there first, I will also try to find what is the right contact for that type of scheduling/exams entitlement questions.

Cheers,

PS: kindly let me know if you were able to do that in the scheduling tool, to see if you still need help.

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

Thank you for the reply.
I don't see the remote option in the scheulding tool at https://rhtapps.redhat.com/individualexamscheduler/#/ScheduleExamLocation.

I redirected to that page from https://rol.redhat.com/rol/app/exam/ex407-2.7 after I clicked "update exam".  You can see the banner explictly mentioning to look for remote scheduling ( see attached picture). I can see the exam (EX407) is offered remote here https://www.redhat.com/en/services/certification/ways-to-test

I guess you are refeering to https://www.redhat.com/en/services/training/ex407-red-hat-certified-specialist-in-ansible-automation... which asks me to pay, that is not correct. 

I need your help. The next available slot for taking the test at testing center ( One hour drive) is in October. My subscription expires in October Smiley Sad

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

Hi @binyam,

EX407 was supposed to go public this week, but has been delayed due to extended internal pilotting. You can expect EX407 V27 to be available probably by the week of 7-September. 

Apologies for the messaging in the Ways to Test page. Please keep checking the schedule for EX407 after a week and you should see an option to book it as a Remote Exam.

Best Regards,

Shefeeq

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

Hello @binyam 

I see you got answers already, and some small delays in releasing a particular exam made a small discrepancy with the "Ways to Test" page. 

I was not refering you to a paying way, I was talking about this:

WayTo.png

That is an extract from the Red Hat exam scheduler tool:  once candidates have the exam entitlement, they are supposed to be able to choose how it will be delivered in a flexible way. That is rather new (less than a month old), that is why asking if you checked.

Hope that clarifies, and good luck with your exam in advance!

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

Hi,

I will share the feedback with the right team but I want to highlight that toggle feature was not working for me on windows 10. I wasn't able to toggle between browser and terminal window. Any advice?

Thanks in Advance!

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

Hi @PraveenMishra ,

Thanks for the feedback,

Could you kindly explain what you mean by "Toggle feature" and why you are mentioning Windows 10?

Were you using the Remote Exam live environment?

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

Hi,

My concern is that I was not able to toggle between exam window and the terminal, also, one screen is not enough to work comfortably.

I am sorry for mentioning windows 10, that's pointless, I don't know why I did that.

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

Hi @PraveenMishra ,

I believe the idea of allowing only a single screen was to have the testing experience similar between remote and testing center exams. There are also current technical limitations in enabling monitoring of multiple screens, which have been pushed back to prioritize migrating certifications to the remote environment.

Keyboard shortcuts to toggle windows are disabled on purpose on the remote exam image. Candidates (including me) have expressed an inconvenience with this and the feedback has been passed to the team. I would also encourage you to report feedback, so that it gains traction.
Meanwhile using the 'Activities hot corner' can help in toggling between windows.

Regards,
