Do I need sound/speakers? I do have an external microphone/webcam combo, but I do not have speakers. Can the exam be fully completed and proctored using only the chat tool?

Hi @tomS1 ,

Speakers aren't needed for the exam and its only use would be to alert incoming messages from the proctor. (There is a visual notification alert on the chat tool/icon, which alerts messages either way). 
The microphone/webphone combo should work for the exam but please check if the microphone is detected on the RE image . (Boot to the RE image, go to settings > sound > select the input device)


Can the exam be fully completed and proctored using only the chat tool?

The proctor will communicate with a candidate, only via the chat tool and the exam will be proctored using the audio/video feeds from the microphone/webcam. So, you should be good to go as long as all other requirements here are met.

Hope this clarifies.

Best Regards

Hi @Sharma ,

Have you read the Getting Ready document, listing the requirements?

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

FAQ:

https://www.redhat.com/en/resources/certification-remote-exams-FAQ 

 

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

 

A DSLR would not be accepted by the proctor, it would be a smart device, explicitally forbidden (see FAQ).

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.

     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.
