Hi,

Just tested my computer with the compability test and extected to fail on the hardware test where testing the number of cameras installed. Was surprised to see that the camera test passed.

I'm not curently having external camera its just the laptop camera.

Why the test didn't fail? What I've seen here is that I need to have at minimum an external camera to pass the test?

Cheers

You do need ann external cam so the proctor can view your room,

I would suggest it needs to be on 2m of cable to ensure they have the correct viewing angle

@DirkSeifert ,

Hi there,

Yes, An external mic (or a mic builtin into the web camera) can be used for the remote exam.

Hello @kpietras,

A new exam image was released earlier this week. The size of the rhrexboot.iso is about 2.3 GB. The MD5 checksum is 585cb364da1ae2fae94e22e07913316e.

Best Regards,

How many days before the exam should I download an image? I'm not sure how often they are updated and if it matters that I have an older version. 

My USB currently has an image that was downloaded on Nov 26th, which is the image that I used to test my laptop (different hash).

My exam is this Friday.

Thanks!
