How are you supposed to deal with bad/insufficient requirements? How tight-assed are the graders? Will you lose points if you violate "the letter" of the requirements, even if you can justify it because it allows you to confirm better to "the spirit" of the requirements?
Specifically, would it be OK to eliminate one of the use cases if it allowed a simpler design and faster response times (with a performance criterial part of the requirments) while not resulting in any change to the external behaviour of the system?
