There is no perfect solution... - need feedback

I believe this exam has taught me a lot.

Bt wat I am going to say might have got debated earlier.

There is no perfect solution.

Idea placed by one may not be acceptable to examiner. Agreed! bt I feel the examiner should still provide his inputs. This exam does require interaction. Also let the examiner say be final. Bt its very imp for us that we learn from mistakes. In other sun exams (I mean the tic-tac-toa) answers are fixed. We can go back and correct our mistakes.

Sun should help students become better solution providers. Eventually its going to help sun.

If I understood correctly, you would like feedback from SUN on your assignment as this would help you learn from your mistake! I agree but..

If SUN would actually provide feedback, it wouldn't very long for the assignment to lose all its value.
It would be very easy for new comers to just copy a known-to-be-good design.
I actually like the fact that locking score 44 is still a mystery

Even though a lot of us use the certifications as a learning process, I think it's not their fundamental purposes. Instead, you could sign-up for university courses where the purpose is really to help you learn and give you feedback...

I agree. Here's the link:
