Remote exam on mac

Hi all, has someone experienced remote exam using a Mac? Can you share difficulties you encounter. All my connection tests were OK. Here are some observations using a Macbook Pro later 2013.

- I needed a ethernet cable,  an external mouse/trackpad, 1 usb hub for webcam and mouse.

Re: Remote exam on mac

The best thing to do:

- Make a Fedora live usb

- Have an external webcam

- Connect your mabook Pro with a ethernet cable (I used an ethernet thunderbolt adaptor)

I took my PE180 exam recently on my late 2013 Macbook Pro, here is what I did:

- Boot on Fedora usb live

- Configure a mac os keyboard via settings

- Make sur the Network configuration is 1000Mbs

- Dowload chromium (the only required browser)

- Connect to icloud mail to access to my exam reservation

- Use the url to proceed all compatibility checks (OK for all tests)

- Take my exam
