Q: Once I start the test, if due to any reason I get logged out then will I be able to login again by myself?

A: Before you start the test, please keep the following things in mind:

  • You need to ensure good Internet connectivity before starting the test.
  • If you just want to check the test link, you can take the Dummy Test before you start the Main Test. The option to take the Dummy Test will be available as you login to the Assessment URL provided to you.
  • If due to any reason you log out of the system without completing the test you will not be able to log in again & would need to raise a request with EnterpriseDB for the reactivation of your Registration ID.
  • For the reactivation of the Registration ID, please send a mail to trainingcoordinator@enterprisedb.com and this will be activated within 24 hours.
  • Once your Registration ID is re-activated, you can login again to retake the test. However, at this point of time the answers marked by you in the previous session will freeze & you will not be able to change them. Also, the Timer will start from where you had left in the previous session.
