I had posted my comment earlier on this thread. I had rescheduled the exam to today 1pm. (started around 1:15) Unfortunately, the exam environment was so poor, that just to type an ' _' too approximately 25 secs. I messaged that to the proctor, He replied that there is nothing he can do about it. My system passed all the compatibility checks. But in the exam, all windows hanged. Typing a single command took eternity. Scrolling down the exam tasks also hanged the window. Since this is not a test environment and not even a test of skills in any way, I want hortonworks to refund the exam amount. I would not even want to reschedule the exam with hortonworks. I messaged the same to the proctor and asked him to end the exam without starting it (1:30 - after struggling with typing and moving between hanged windows) Hortonworks team - please create a support ticket and refund my exam amount. I would not want to reschedule the exam if the exam environment is not going to improve. We are professionals working on hadoop/spark for many years, and this is not expected from Hortonworks.

Hi, I had an extremely bad experience trying to give the HDPCD Spark exam today and could not even start the exam until 12:30. My exam was scheduled at 10am. I logged into the exam at 9:45 am. There was no Launch exam button until 9:50.
I had done the compatibility test before and it had passed.
I had taken care of the additional requirements below. Tried with two laptops, but still the exam could not be released. . My monitor resolution was 1600X900 and bandwidth was much more than 20mbps. I used two laptops.
On one laptop, the camera worked on the mictest but not with examslocal. Prior to the exam the camera works, but not with examslocal.
Since the exam was not released at all, please re-schedule the exam to a later date. I am exhausted emotionally and physically for the last 3 hours and the exam could not be released. It was an extremely bad experience, I do not know how this can be changed for people just trying to appear for an exam. There must be some option, where the candidate shows up, spend 3 hours with 2 laptops to appear for the exam. Passes the compatibility tests before, and still could not give the exam, considering the exam fee to be 250 USD, and the amount of mental and physical exhaustion that a candidate goes through.
I request hortonworks to give me credits so that I can re-take the exam. And how can this entire situation be improved so that no one suffers so much just to start the exam.
