Really?! That's a relief! I remember nearly going insane counting parentheses and curly brace for the OCP 6 a few years ago, to make sure they matched. There was always an evil "does not compile" option which forced you to check these things.
I'm glad they've changed this. Nearly everyone uses IDEs these days anyway, and they all highlight missing punctuation as you type. The exam should concentrate on compiler errors that test the candidate's in-depth understanding of the underlying API, not missing punctuation.

There's still the evil "does not compile" option on many questions. But it is for more "interesting" things like referring to a private variable from another class or the wrong syntax on lambdas. Rather than counting parens/brackets.
