My notebook has three USB ports. I would like to know if during the exam I can use the following format?
1 USB - webcam
1 USB - wired mouse
1 USB - bootable image
And keyboard built into the notebook

Hi @Auria ,

Yes, That appears to be the most feasible option for your device.
Please run the compatibility test to check the functionality of the webcam, mouse, and keyboard before attempting the exam.

HI @Auria 

Yes, you can use this format. 

If you are planning to use an external monitor however, the equation will change. You will need to close the laptop lid and use a wired external keyboard too. This will necessitate 4 USB ports. A USB hub can be used to connect your keyboard and mouse, while the bootable image and webcam can be plugged directly in to the other two ports.

Hope this clarifies.

Best Regards,

Shefeeq

Hi there,

I haven't seen this pixelated screen while testing. Do you get the same screen every time the live USB is booted?
We may have to investigate further to determine the cause if that is the case. Please raise a ticket here with your hardware details.

Could you also try booting the RE image on a different device and let me know how it goes.

Dear Chris. Some laptops have two graphics card. A discrete and integrated. The more powerful discrete card is mostly engaged when the computer runs on power cable while the integrated one is engaged when running on battery. Sometimes, you can enforce either of them in BIOS. It seems your issue is related to the grahics card. In case your laptop has both of them, you can consider changing the bios to the other one, if possible in your particular hardware.

Hi, Thanks for open this space.
My question is about the possible scenarios where the exam is considered a fault or potentially considered suspended. 

  1. ¿Which are those cases where the Exam could be potentially suspended?. ¿What happens to student? , ¿does the student have to pay again for the exam?
  2. Some FAQs says that if something causes the interruption of the exam (Network issues for example) and this happens in the first 30 minutes, the student has the possibility to re-schedule the exam.¿ What happens if the issue happens after the first  30 minutes? 
  3. ¿Are headphones allowed? (Just for NoiseCancelling) 

Thanks!
