Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

unable to complete CKA exam due to PSI browser issues.

Options

I had given my second attempt for CKA on 1st May. Around 60 mins of time, PSI browser stopped responding and PSI support had informed me to close the application and launch again. Frustrating process is they do all check in process again and by the time they took me to exam screen, timer was completely done and I couldn't continue the exam. Spoke to PSI team in phone and what all they did is just apologizing me for what happened. I have opened ticket with Linux team and waiting.

    I had the same problem during my CKAD exam on April 29th. With only 20 minutes left, my browser stopped responding. I was just about to review my answers, and by the time I logged back in, the exam was over. I can only imagine how frustrated you must have been not being able to finish.

    To make things worse, it's been 48 hours since the exam, and I still haven't received my results. If I don't pass, I'm going to ask for a retake. Honestly, it was a terrible experience, and I don't plan on paying for another TLF certificate until they fix these issues. And, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else either.

    Hi @mstepien @fcioanca can you please help me here to address my issue (TCCS-67975 PSI browser not responsive and lost CKA exam screen. Need retake). I am not seeing any response on the ticket. This is my second attempt already and I had similar issues in the first attempt, scored 64% and failed. I cannot take same pain again for this second attempt where I had almost 6-7 questions to complete.

    Seeing many complaints with PSI browser in many discussion forums, not sure when these will be addressed. I want my retake back and proper 2 hours to complete this valuable certification. Please reply

    Hi @mstepien

    I got results today and it's 50% and couldn't clear as expected. I had got only 60 mins of chance to give exam and this is best I could do. So far there's no one who is responding to my ticket or jira. Can you please arrange retake as my both attempts are completely disturbed with PSI browser issues. Also suggest better plan to avoid these issues, may be atleast PSI team should stop doing check in process multiple times when browser is relaunched. This is absolutely time waste from them as timer never getting stopped. Expecting reply on my ticket with retake

    Hi @saivenkatesh505,

    We apologize, but you have to wait and work with the Linux Foundation Support team. We cannot further assist via the forum, as it is only meant for course-related inquiries. Tickets are assigned and resolved in the order received, and one of our team members will contact you when they get to your ticket.

    When there are so many complaints, I dont know why isn't this taken seriously with the psi browser. It's a paid exam , and I had a very bad experience today, and didn't get an update on my support request as well
