Failed scoring 116/114

After nearly 3 months I have dobled checked in Pearson and I have failed part II. The scorings are:

Questions 18 of 24
ClassDiagram 30 of 40
Component Diagram 25 of 40
Deployment Diagram 22 of 24
Interaction Diagram 11 of 16
Technical Risks 10 of 16

I have failed due to I did not get the minimun score in the component diagram (25 where the minimun is 26), right? I am a bit disappointed, however I must say I screw it up on this part since I forgot to include the DB, and since I was using Start UML which does not fully support UML 2.0, I modelled each component with the class UML element stereotyped as <<component>>, which seems the reviewer did not like too much (This is the reviewer comment: Incorrect/inconsistent UML notation used for stereotypes)

I think I will spend some time adding the DB and using a full compliance UML 2.0 tool and resubmit the diagram ... However since I submitted the essay in September I need to do the mandatory course, right? I will try to go for the cheapest online trainning, even if it does not provide me anything usefull ... Has anybody done the SCEA online trainning?

Yes. Unfortunate to have to do it for *one* point!
