Passed OCPJP but ...

Hi guys,
I passed the OCPJP/scjp 6.0 today which is great. However i was really dissapointed with some aspects of the testing software. For instance, there were two questions which asked me to select the 2 correct answers but the selection had to be made via a radio button!! Therefore it was impossible to select the correct answer. If i had failed by just a couple of percent i would have been really annoyed with this problem. Surely after the large effort required by students to prepare for the exam, Sun/Oracle should have more rigourous testing procedures in place to prevent this occurring. The exam is not cheap, so once the Prometric costs are taken away then Oracle are making quite a lot of money from this.
If java engineers are held accountable for not testing their software properly, then surely Oracle can put more effort into this process.
