Hi 

Can I use Macbook Pro (Mac OS Ventura ) for EX 280?

At the moment, only Intel processors are supported, so if your Mac Book Pro uses an Apple Silicon (M1 or M2) chip, it will not work at all.

Hello,

Currently I'm using external audio interface(Focusrite scarlett 2i2) to which I have plugged my XLR microphone, Is it possible to use it during exam? Couldn't find any info about it. This sound card is connected to my PC through USB : https://focusrite.com/en/usb-audio-interface/scarlett/scarlett-2i2

Hi,

you can use an external wired audio interface(Speaker) /mic only if our inbuilt mic/speakers are not working. You can verify if the  mic integrated with external camera is working and the mic volume is adequate. If so, you do not need an external speakers (not mandatory) as the communication with the proctor is through chatbot only. Hope that answers your query!

Hello @ravbahra 

You are allowed to use a wired USB headset with an inbuilt mic, however, the headset needs to be kept on the desk throughout the exam. The proctor will communicate via chat and make sure to pass the mic test successfully in the Compatibility check as the proctor will need to listen/monitor your surroundings. 

NOTE : Keep the proctor informed that you have connected a wired USB headset during Onboaridng

The official exam ebook does not state anything about using a USB microphone or headset. So, thank you for clarifying!

Do you have a reference to a spot where it's documented that a separate USB audio device is allowed?
