During my college years, we had a professor who'd accepted
a position with JPL, but still had to adminster a final
exam to his students.  He scheduled it early so that he
could leave earlier for his new job.  One member of the
class (Quantum Physics) reported him and he had to give
the exam at the regular scheduled time. The test he gave
was 10 questions and was flunked by nearly the entire
class.  The number of questions on the test was/is irrelevant...

I don't remember the commercial radiotelephone license
exams having that many questions either, but they were
certainly harder than *any* of the amateur tests.
