Yes you can. When the remote exam boots, it prompts the user for various configuration steps, including the keyboard locale. I removed the default US English keyboard layout, and instead, I used the French Swiss type, it worked properly.
295/300 on today's EX294.
RedHat Team, few things to be fixed(?):
1. Even with 4K monitor working space is limited - is it possible to change it to use whole 4K for exam?
2. DO NOT use Forward/Back mouse buttons during exam. It was a little bit scary when I was moved to exam start page I completely forgot that exam is "a sandbox in the browser". There should be warning on Exam prep guide about it
3. ALT-TAB is not working due to config above and I really doubt it's fixable
4. Docs webpage is a little bit slow. Can it be improved?

That would reach the right team...
I know some shortcuts are restricted, some others are not. It's not easy for us, candidates, to "get familiar" with that specific environment, and it can be stressful. Especially as you press incorrect shortcuts as you did (which are correct shortcut in a normal Fedora environment).
As for the doc webpages, in my experience it depends on the exam, some pages are slow, some are not. Even once, some were not working for me (unfortunately proctor/support did not do anything with that during the exam). I reported that to the right teams internally...
Of course it's ok to post here too, so candidate can share and discuss- all I am saying is the right team might not read your valuable feedback, especially if it's "lost" among many other posts.
Hi, look here, there has been an update on 3rd June 2021 (so 4 days ago):
It looks like they extended exams: "All certifications have been extended until October 1, 2021."
I verifed and my certification supposed to expire in June 2021, is now showing that date in October 2021!
Edit: I now have a doubt about your question, you mean you bought an exam and you want to take it at a later date? if so, your best bet is to contact support...Link to support page form
Will it be allowed for using an external wired speaker during the remote exam? Because the built-in speaker of my notebook does not work.
Speakers are not a requirement for remote exams. The proctor will communicate with you via a chat applet within the exam environment.
However, a microphone is needed to transmit your audio to the proctors. If your internal mic also has problems, you can use a wired microphone/headset (via jack or USB) and leave it on the work table. (Your exam proctor will guide on the camera & mic placement).
Hello,I've prepared the USB key with the remote exam image. Just to make a quick verification, I made an attempt using it on my business machine, a Thinkpad P50. After disabling Secure Boot on BIOS, it starts loading but when it reaches 100% it is freezed.
Using the same USB key on my personal laptop (an old Samsung machine with i5 and 8GB) it is instead able to complete initialization and also shows the configuration editors.
Wondering whether the P50 may have any other BIOS setting that may prevent the correct initialization of the image. It starts loading and shows the splashscreen, so it is not an issue with bootloader or UEFI/Legacy config.
HDD is encrypted, but I don't think this can be an issue considering that the USB is
expected to load everything in RAM and internal disk should not be used at all.
Any idea about how to further debug ?
The alternative would be to use my personal laptop, but the camera is really poor and keyboard is also not working that well...I would prefer to fix the problem on P50 and use this one for the remote exam...
