Hello Redhat Team,

Thank you guys for making it possible to deliver exams remotely in this challenging time we live in in.

I have my exams on Monday Sept 7th and i have been following this forum religously to ensure everything runs smoothly on that day. I do have some questions.

1. I have ran the compatibility test almost 50 times now on the device that i intend to use for the exam and each time i do its fails on the "Microphone volume is adequate". Today i just tested and had my music playing on the background and it passed but when i turned it off and the room was quiet it failed again. Does this mean that the compatibility test is checking for sound input to pass or just a coincidence? Every other parts of the compatibility test passed without a problem. If only this fails does that affect my ability to take the exam?

2. Also on the live exam environment after i put my redhat login. It says "You have no scheduled exam" even though my exam has been scheduled about 2weeks ago. Should i be worried about this?

Thank you

Hi @Sam_Akpan,

 

1) There is an option in settings to turn the input mic's volume levels all the way to high. This typically fixes the microphone level issue. You have to turn the volume up and toggle to some other option in the settings once and then proceed to the compatibility test.  Have you tried that? Pasting an image below:

2. The Proctoring application picks up your scheduled exams a few minutes before the start time. So, this should not worry you as long as your scheduler portal shows the exam scheduled date and time.

Best Regards,

Shefeeq

Hi @DevinTravis,

No. It has to be an external Webcam. No additional laptops, mobile phones, tablets etc. are allowed near your exam desk.

Hi!

There are some news about that after 1 October there will be new objectives in EX200 like containers and openshift. Is this true ?

Thank you for your answer!

It means, the last day for the Old Ex200 exam (without containers and openshift) will be 30th September?

Hi @AJ17 ,

That is correct. The RHCSA EX200v8 exam has to be scheduled by September 30th to take the exam without container content.
(Note that these changes do not affect the RHEL7 EX200 exam)
