Java Certification Exam

I recently took the Java certification exam and I did not pass. It is my impression that for some of the matching questions, there was more than one correct answer. I also remember being told, that on the certification exam, there was only one correct answer. Is that right?

The number of correct answers for each question will be mentioned.
And not "choose all that apply".

It is my impression that for some of the matching questions, there was more than one correct answer.

By matching questions do you mean drag and drop type of questions, if yes then there is only one correct answer.
Although I cleared the exam, I suspect that drag and drop questions reduced my score.
The natural reason being that such questions require you to combine pieces together, one always has a feeling that there may be more than one valid combination, but that just an illusion.
For multiple choice questions, the number of correct answers is mentioned.

Hope this helps .
