Frustrating experience - Pearson VUE canceled my exam - Connection lost during cert - Although my Wifi was excellent
Hello, I had a bad experience taking the AWS cert with PearsonVUE yesterday. It was highly frustrating. I had scheduled the AWS SysOps Associate for 14th Fri 6:45 PM PST. The test began on time and after 10 mins, the PearsonVUE system got disconnected and showed "attempting to reconnect". It attempted to reconnect for 30 mins during which I tried to speak with a proctor, none responded. After 30 mins I didnt know what to do and I decided to close the application and relaunch it. This time I was allowed to initiate the test from the 11th minute which is great. After 15 mins again the same problem occurred. This time I waited for another 25 mins, no proctor responded. Finally I had to close the browser and tried to relaunch but I was not allowed to relaunch. During this entire experience my WiFi was excellent. On Sat morning I learnt that I am FAILED. This is highly frustrating experience. It takes a lot of effort to prepare and schedule for these exams. Now, the system allows me to retake the exam only after 14 days. Meaning I have to dedicate time again, for no fault of mine. Lot of people have had complaints with PearsonVUE and am not sure how we are considering them as the choice of test administrators. How does PEARSONVue plan to compensate me for the time and effort that I have lost? And they seem so rude during communication with the proctor. I dont know how large corporations are still collaborating with PearsonVUE.
Pearson examination - exam procedure and being revoked
Just tried to do my Solution Architect Professional exam through Pearson OnVue. After 2 hours (and 45 min check-in) and about 50/70 questions through I was kicked out by Pearson. After chatting with Pearson support I was told the exam was revoked because I leaned in too much and got out of view from the webcam. Checking my phone afterwards I can see that they did attempt to contact me via my phone. As directed by the check-in proctor, both my phone and smartwatch notification were off, silent, and far away from my test area - as you would in any exam situation. There were no other form of contact before being booted. I feel like this is some kind of catch-22 situation where: * Pearson will fail and revoke if I use an electronic device (phone) during the exam * Pearson will fail and revoke if I am not reachable through the banned electronic device I am all for stringent exam environments but I feel that all this could have been avoided if the exam app did a pop alert saying "We are trying to contact you via chat or your phone" and pause the exam. Anyone know what's the usual resolution for cases like this? Do I get a reschedule exam or is my money gone for good?

Proctor misconception revoked exam - Pathetic service by Pearson?
Unacceptable experience with Pearson. I have scheduled AWS Cloud Practitioner exam on 18th December 2 PM, Here are the issues I faced: 1) I ran system at 1:15 eveything was OK during the system test 2) 1:45 PM agent chat me that he cant hear me and put me back to the queue 3) 2:15 PM another agent said the same thing and put me back the queue 4) after 30 minutes some agent allowed to the exam 5) While I was writing the exam, some proctor gave me a warning that I should not speak loud I said ACK 6) Immediately she has a misconception of thirdparty entered into the room left side webcam, in reality that's a mirror reflection at my back 7) revoked the exam immediately and she has not given me option to explain as well and note down the customer care - Case ID : 07419031 8) I contacted Pearson Customer care, they were not able to help me and hung up 9) Sent an email to Pearson Customer care, no response yet 10) After few calls, I insisted them to investigate, they came back to me saying exam was revoked correctly 11) Spoke to senior supervisor Bryan, he suggested me to contact AWS, & he doesn't know how to contact AWS ( No information provided ) just said contact AWS 12) Now, I explored myself to contact you about this issue. 13) Please get the investigation done, and share me the proof of picture that third party entered into my room. 14) Based on the pictures shared, I will decide to go legally or not. 15) Pearson is a pathetic service I have ever seen
Pearson Vue exam did not launch and then cancelled
Hello, The AWS Cloud Practitioner exam does not load through Pearson Vue platform. I was scheduled to take the test on Friday, December 3 2021 at 10:30 am CET. I did all the system checks the day before and joined the online exam platform 30 minutes in advance as recommended. The security tests passed. Initially after 45 mins of waiting, a proctor checked all my surrounding and he said that he will release the exam. But the exam Window didn't launch because of technical issues (precisely "browserlock.exe" is not loading). The proctor asked me to close the session and we tried relaunching the OnVue software, which did not work again. Then he disconneted the call and also the exam session. I had to start the exam session again, because the proctor closed the previous session, but this time I had to wait another 1 hour to connect with a Proctor. The 2nd Proctor also tried to release the exam, but after few tries he gave up and told me that he will connect to some technical support. Again the exam session was ended. The 3rd time when I tried to start the exam session, I could not find the exam link. Few moments later, I received a mail that the exam is cancelled and the fee will be refunded. So many months of preparation, course trainings and energy wasted because of technical issues. The certification is part of our Company's internal Employee development plan to help educate developers and system engineers in migrating to AWS. I, part of Architecture Team, have to deliver a Cloud solution to our On-Premises software in mid February. But with this kind of experience, I could not encourage the others to pursue these certification paths to educate ourselves. I hope there is more reliability in these certifications, in order to motivate ourselves to learn about the new technologies and also to reach our milestones that we set for ourselves. I appreciate if someone could find a solution to my problem and probably help me take the exam (because currently I am not sure if the exam will launch) Following are my schedule exam details for your reference: **Exam: SAA-C02-AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate-ENU Candidate: Venkata Naveen Bantu Candidate ID: AWS02482326 Registration ID: 409543687 Date: Friday, December 3, 2021 Time: 10:30 AM Central European Time** Thank you, Best regards, Naveen Bantu
Forensic and statistical analysis FAILED the exam
Yesterday I took SAA exam and after the exam ended it showed that I passed. However today I received this email from AWS that I failed when they performed some forensic analysis. What in the world is this thing. I didn't do anything. I showed invigilator everything I was doing and he had no objection. I didn't speak or used any program other than PSI secure browser. And now I receive this email. It also says all my previous certifications are revoked. What the hell is this. This is a system generated email and I cannot reply to it. Who am I supposed to contact here I'm literally shaking right now. You are receiving this email because AWS has detected statistical anomalies in your AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate exam performance, which prevents AWS from validating and certifying your results. AWS performed forensic and statistical analysis on the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate exam that was delivered under your AWS Certification account on Dec 4 2021 3:40AM. AWS's use of data forensics to detect statistical anomalies is explained in the AWS Certification Program Agreement ("the CPA"). As permitted by the CPA, AWS, in our sole discretion, has invalidated your AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate exam result and revoked any previously issued AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate certification related to your exam result. You are not eligible to receive a refund of any testing fees.
Frustrating experience with AWS Certification and Pearson
Exam Date :25th November, 2021 I am a student and AWS certification is mandated as part of my course work. I need the results asap. I gave my test on 25th November, 2021. I still did not receive any update on my exam results. Support said it is under security review, but it has passed 5 business days. It would be great if you can expedite my results. This is important for my course completion.
