For purposes of the exam, does it matter if I use JTextField or JCombox for GUI search parameters?

I downloaded the Beta exam, but by that time, I was already 3 weeks into working on the current exam, which I'm sticking with.
The document with the current exam states that projects will be scored according to these criteria (in part):
�General Considerations (Total 58)
oease of use (23)
�User Interface (Total 24)
olayout uses good/accepted Human/Computer Interaction (HCI) principles (24)

Actually I understand now. I will use a combo box since it it can be used as a textfield with some added functinality to make things easier for the user.
