Exam Challenge won't load

I was taking the Certification exam Part 2 of the “Building Interactive Websites” of the Full-Stack Engineer career path, however, whenever I clicked on the button “Start part 2” found under the coding challenge guidelines, the page gets stuck in a never ending loop of the loading screen.

When I checked DevTools, the console kept on saying: (note: I had to change all the links to address, so every time it says address, I really mean https )

GET addres://88dc3cb145bc4b59b1e1763c6a9ad41e.cc-propeller.cloud/ 404. fetchObservable.js:23

These errors don’t let me load the challenge. I really want to end this exam because I was able to do all the other exams perfectly fine, but it’s just this one in particular that doesn’t load.

Did I do something wrong?

Short answer? Don’t know. Can’t say. To pass the web design exams you need to get into the head of whomever wrote it, as near as I can tell. There is no, ‘Oh, I see where you went wrong.’ You are left with spending your time figuring out what the author wants, rather than what working markup looks like. I gave up on the exams given I’m well on being retired and have nothing to prove. I hope you eventually solve this riddle and get to move on. If you do, be kind and support those who follow you down this rabbit hole.

On another site, the qualification for advancement to the next exercise is to get five correct answers in a row. Until that we are just given another question to answer or problem to solve. This is how the tests should be structured, rather than having to do the whole test again. You just keep getting a new question, sometimes the same one flubbed up in an earlier attempt to see if we’ve done any catch up. I love this manner of progression and it really proves the learner is committed. Passing a CC exam is nothing like that.
