Hi Thomas,

Here are minimum marks that I got from one post in this forum:

Component Diagram ---- 40 ---- 26
Class Diagram ---- 40 ---- 26
Deployment Diagram ---- 24 ---- 17
Interaction Diagrams ---- 16 ---- 0
Risk & Migration List ---- 16 ---- 0
Part 3 Short Answer ---- 24 ---- 17
Total 160

As I can see, you failed in Deployment Diagram (you need to have 17 but got only 14).
Here is also good topic regarding the same situation: failed-although-enough-points

And I saw couple posts with recommendations for improvement of deployment diagram part in the forum.
I agree. Here's the link:
