Errors on the SCWCD Exam

I took the exam today and passed with 86% score. My score could have been higher if it wasn't for 2 drag and drop questions that had all labels blank. So basically there was nothing to drag to the boxes.
I let the supervisor know and all she could do was ask me to add a note for these questions.
While it's no big deal for me, it could mean failure for someone else.
Does Sun rectify the score later on?
Anyone been in a similar situation?

SCJP 6 85% - SCWCD 86%

I had never heard of such problems, but after searching the SCJP forum, I came across this thread, with a similar problem.

Thanks for the response.
Yes, that's the exact problem I had.
It doesn't matter much to me, but again, someone might fail because of this. These 2 questions were easy and I would have gotten them right which would have put my score at 89%.
I really don't want to go looking for a sun email address to write to.
I noticed that Bret was willing to look into this in the other thread. If he would like I can provide details about my test.

I agree. Here's the link:
