Web Developer Certification Exam - CountDown

On our radar

The exam application for Outsystems certifications doesn't have a time countdown. 

Since it's made inside the ProctorU's "SecureBrowser", you never know when it will end, because the application hides the system clock. 

Since you're not allowed to use a smartphone, you either have a watch or you're on your own figuring it out by the sun position.

This greatly increases anxiety, examinees easily loose track of time.

You're on your own figuring it out by the sun position.

What if the sun isn't shining though? The anxiety would be even worse!

Yeah, that's pretty annoying, would be nice to at least have the current time or something.

Very complicated! Especially for those who are already eager nature. A clock would be reasonable.

Very complicated. I felt difficulties in the exam, because i had no idea of the time that was lacking for the end.

Changed the category to Training

Said the same to some people, so I'm giving my +1 here!

This could really help. It would be even better if the user could choose whether to see or not the clock (talking about it with some friends, some of them told me that they would be nervous seeing the clock).

Merged this idea with 'Timer in Exams' (created on 12 Mar 2019 00:55:59 by Tushar Panpaliya)

Recently appeared for outsystems certification and there was no way to see how much time is left. I was told to remove the smartwatch and also place the phone outside my reach. The Proctoru's browser application used for exams also had hidden my laptop clock. Some time of timer on the exam screen would be of help here I think.
