@Normandy for me it was that the questions were worded badly
they're like "here's some methods, inherit this superclass and do it"
the code I worked with had ZERO documentation and even the TA couldn't figure it out and had to just look at the answer key
@Normandy not to mention the computers have been unstable lately
