This thread is dedicated to connect you with Red Hat subject matter experts who can help answer your questions regarding Red Hat remote exams. Please see the following resources for Red Hat Remote Exams below:

**Our subject matters experts in the Red Hat Learning Community will not be assisting with tasks related to scheduling exams.
Red Hat management decided long ago not to run the certification exams in the Internet Browsers (like many other companies did), but to use a customized Fedora Live USB system, probably in an effort to protect the Exam"s integrity.
Of course, this decision also brings challenges. You hardly find a Linux distribution booting on any computer ever made worldwide. If you do, let me know about it.
Buying a new computer for the exam is the worst thing you can do unless you consult with the vendor about its compatibility with Fedora 33 the exam ISO is based on and unless you test it before you buy. As you might know, every computer hardware needs drivers and modules. Unlike RedHat, the producers do not publish their computer specifications and architecture details in advance. RedHat is buying those new computers in order to test their compatibility. But anyone can join the RH community and participate in creating the drivers to make it compatible. Did you participate?
Some marginal hardware configurations, gaming computers, new technologies, or models are usually not supported or not supported fully. It is generally known building drivers and integrating them into any Linux distro may take up to 3 years. What is the chance the new Microsoft laptop/tablet with its outstanding features will be supported by several years old version of exam Fedora?
I do not think RH engineers are failing. Thousands of users were able to take the exam, many are taking the exam every day. They had or found a compatible computer to use. And those who did not can still take the exam from the classroom.
Because it is quite understandable, the exam system cannot run on everything, unfortunately.
I would like to add that any 'v' exam allows any exam taker to schedule on a training center, if that option is preferable to doing it with your own laptop. So takers should feel free to schedule an in-person exam if they feel their home/office setups do not adequately support the exam requirements.
In case the meeting room has pure transparent glass walls, you can perhaps cover them with a blanket or something. It is up to the proctor if he/she allows the exam to run
yes, you may have just one camera, but it has to be external. No other camera is needed. What RH has to see is this
