Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi,

this is my first redhat exam (EX280) and I'm trying to schedule it asap.

I've bought camera, took notebook especially for the exam as soon as my working laptop is not eligible to start from external drives due to security policies, I've uploaded my goverment issued local ID with photo on Friday and still didn't get an approval. I think I'm half way to the exam and can't predict if the process should finish by the end of September to give me the chance to access EX280 before it's withdrawal.

Do you consider new applicants to pass exams? If yes, could you please help?

thank you

Hello,

Pre-approval of ID verification shouldn't take such a long time as weeks. Can you please log a ticket at https://rhtapps.redhat.com/comments/ so that the team can check the details and revert to you?

Best Regards,

Shefeeq

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi @Yousuf ,

Internet speed tests available on the internet choose the nearest server to test bandwidth and hence realtime results can be quite different. The download/upload test of our compatibility test looks at the speed to access Red Hat servers and hence it will be different based on distance, time of testing, etc.

Please try conducting a few more iterations of this test at different times of the day to see if the failure is consistent.

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Can I use an IMac? 

The IMac however has a wireless trackpad and a wireless keyboard, is that acceptable?

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hello @Sai_K,

Wireless keyboard and trackpad are not acceptable. You will need a wired keyboard and mouse. iMac compatibility in general such as wireless adapter detection, ability to boot to the live USB etc. can only be determined by creating the bootable remote exam image on a USB and testing it out. Hence, if you have a wired keyboard and mouse handy, please create a live USB and run the compatibility test.

Best Regards,

Hello @seandrethegiant,

2018/9 series Macs seem to have compatibility issues with several Linux distributions and is impacting our remote exam image too. Keyboard, Touchpad, Mic and Webcam are seen to work erratically or not work at all. Do you have another laptop that you can try with?

Regards,

Shefeeq

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hello @limaunion,

I asked around internally and it seems like the demand for testing center and remote exams have been quite high lately, nearing the maximum exams that can be monitored on a given day. Nevertheless, there may be time slots that are outside of your business hours if there are other timezones where bookings are lesser. I do not have visibility to global schedules, however, the understanding is that the demands are high due to which slots may be booked out during certain times.

PS: Slot availability is dependent on the maximum number of exams that can be monitored by Red Hat's remote exam proctors each day. 

Best Regards,

Shefeeq
