210 candidates in the wrong?


In the reporting of the IStructE exam debacle (NCE last week) it seems to me that one important aspect of the debate is being overlooked.

The recent article states that of the 250 candidates who opted to answer Question 1, 40 answered with a single scheme as instructed by the question.

One candidate states that the question asked for 'a solution': why then did 210 candidates ignore the instructions and answer with multiple schemes?
