Technical Issues during CKS Exam by PSI Bridge Browser


My name is Chetan Gawande (chetan.gawande093@gmail.com), and I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with the recent Certified Kubernetes Security Specialist (CKS) exam experience that I encountered on 6 march 2024. I believe it is essential to bring this matter to your attention for resolution.

On the day of the CKS exam, I encountered significant technical difficulties that hindered my ability to complete the assessment successfully. I would like to outline the issues I faced during the examination:
Terminal Unavailability(where we run the command): Upon launching the exam, I encountered difficulty in locating the terminal required for the assessment
Chat Window Visibility: When attempting to communicate with the proctor via the chat function, I faced a challenge as the chat window was only partially visible. This limited visibility hindered effective communication, making it difficult for me to receive necessary instructions and assistance.
Message Readability Issues(chat window): As I struggled to read the messages due to the partial visibility of the chat window, my understanding of the exam instructions and guidance was compromised. This significantly impacted my ability to navigate through the assessment smoothly.

Regrettably, despite my attempts to resolve these issues through communication with the proctor, the problems persisted. Consequently, I experienced further frustration, and eventually, the exam session was prematurely closed.

For your reference, the ticket number associated with my communication with the PSI team regarding this matter is #4030454. I trust that you will investigate this complaint thoroughly and take appropriate measures to address the technical shortcomings that marred my CKS exam experience.

I kindly request that you provide a prompt and comprehensive resolution to this matter. Your attention to this issue is highly appreciated, and I look forward to receiving a response at your earliest convenience.
