Hi @charith1994 ,

The scheduler application is smart enough to identify countries with a non-English ID and prompts to upload it while scheduling an exam.test.png












Our language experts will then validate your ID and approve it prior to the exam. The candidate will be required to produce the same pre-approved ID during the scheduled exam.

If your country uses a non-English ID and the scheduler application does not prompt for it, please write to the Certification team here.

Best Regards,

     I paid for exam EX300 before July 1st 2020 and am ready to schedule my test.  I have been following the news about the availability of the "remote exam" option for various exams.  I've seen lists of exams that are currently available remotely but EX300 is not on any list.   I've been all over Red Hat's website.    Can someone confirm or deny the availability of EX300 "remote exam"?   All testing centers where I live right now are closed due to Covid19 so my only option is "remote exam" for now.   The  only list of remote exams that i can find are these: EX200, EX294, EX288, EX318, EX403, e EX407.

Hi @douradoden ,

The remote version of EX300 was piloted internally and should have been available this week.
Can you try to schedule the exam here and let me know?
Please raise a ticket if you are unable to schedule it as a remote exam and the team can assist.

Hi @vishals ,

Quick one regarding that, do you know for how long will EX300 / RHEL7 exams will be available? As per the description in [1] :

--

"""The exam based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 is available via individual exams until July 1, 2020. Classroom and on-site exams for this version are available for purchase until October 1, 2020."""

--

However a bit more of clarity on that would be useful! Cheers

Hi @Fran_Garcia ,

The RHEL7 RHCE-EX300 exam is no longer available for purchase as an individual (or remote) exam. EX300 can only be taken as a remote exam by those candidates who already have an eligibility by means of a past purchase of an EX300 (V7) voucher.

If you already have an exam voucher, it is valid for one year from the date of purchase and can be scheduled and taken at any point prior to its expiration.

Hope that clarifies.

How earlier do we need to sign on the exam to secure the test date?

4. Monitor - Dell 25" QHD monitor - no issues at all (exam workspace could be a little bit larger but I had no issues with terminal window/web browser)

How big is the exam workspace? Enough space for two or three teminal windows?

Hi @JZ2 ,

It's a Fedora 32 desktop, I think the max resolution is 1920*1080p (well probably it was like that due to my screen)... And it depends on your screen size, some people take the test on a 14" laptop...some take it on larger screen.

You can even use tabs for terminal windows, if required.

If the test environment does not meet the requirement or does not function well, would candidate be allowed to test in another time?
