It was a bug of version 6.0.1

It was a bug of version 6.0.1. Cisco says: 

All NetAcad students using the student version of Cisco Packet Tracer (PT) 6.1 should upgrade to PT 6.1.1 as soon as possible. Version 6.1.1 contains an important fix to a bug and helps ensure the correct scoring of Packet Tracer Skills Assessments (PTSAs) in the CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum. 

So I just upgraded my PT to version 6.1.1.
