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

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:

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!

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!

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?

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.

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.

Hi @charith1994,

EX407 (V7) was due for public release this week. The internal pilot tests were extended through this week at the last minute. The website was updated as part of it's original release. Apologies for the confusion. EX407 is expected to be available as a Remote Exam in about a week from now. 

Best Regards,

Shefeeq
