How earlier do we need to sign on the exam to secure the test date?

4. Monitor - Dell 25" QHD monitor - no issues at all (exam workspace could be a little bit larger but I had no issues with terminal window/web browser)

How big is the exam workspace? Enough space for two or three teminal windows?

Hi @JZ2 ,

It's a Fedora 32 desktop, I think the max resolution is 1920*1080p (well probably it was like that due to my screen)... And it depends on your screen size, some people take the test on a 14" laptop...some take it on larger screen.

You can even use tabs for terminal windows, if required.

If the test environment does not meet the requirement or does not function well, would candidate be allowed to test in another time?

Hi @JZ2 ,

Please refer to the FAQ:

https://www.redhat.com/en/resources/certification-remote-exams-FAQ 

It's the candidate responsability to "Get Ready".

There are some scenario where the candidate would be allowed to test in another time:

"If network connectivity problems arise within the first 30 minutes of the exam and you are unable to resolve them, you can request to discontinue and reschedule your exam attempt."

There are other situation when it won't be allowed, for example if the candidate did not comply with the requirements. 

Do remember that some proctor resources are assigned to monitor the candidate, that is why it is written to reschedule at least 24 hours in advance to avoid losing the exam entitlement. 

Cheers,

I am confused about the use of a wired keyboard, mouse, etc.

Does a laptop with a screen, keyboard, and touchpad(instead of a mouse) fine?

What is covering via a lid mean?

Hi @adharsh2208 

Please read this document carefully, it will answer your questions, and more:

https://learn.redhat.com/t5/Certification-Resources/Getting-Ready-for-your-Red-Hat-Remote-Exam/ba-p/... 

PS: there is no "covering via a lid", it says about closing the lid (the laptop screen), when there is another screen being used.

As for your laptop, it depends if it's the laptop screen or external screen (it's not very clear, since all laptops have a screen, I don't see the need to specify that again). If it's a laptop, you can use it with the laptop keyboard and laptop touchpad. If it's an external screen then you must close the lid, therefore the laptop screen + keyboard + touchpad won't be available and you need the external keyboard and mouse.

Cheers,

Thank you for the response. @JS_Learning 

I assume - I can also use my Laptop Cam? Instead of an external webcam.

Hi @adharsh2208 ,

As I said, please read the document carefully, there is no need for making assumptions (and getting it wrong). It clearly says external webcam.

In your best interest, I want to reiterate that it's the candidate responsability to "Get Ready" when choosing Remote Exams. If not willing to do that properly, it's probably best to look for alternative, like going to a testing center with a Kiosk computer ready for you.  It looks to me, the lack of attention displayed, could result in a proctor not allowing you to attend the exam, because not complying with some the requirements. That would probably means a lost exam entitlement and frustration for everyone!

Also the exams are rather hard, for me at least, and they do require a lot of attention to the questions and what it is asked to do, just a friendly reminder or warning!

Good luck with your preparations!
