Unlocked problem sets

I have recently solved quite a few unlocked problem sets but have not been credited with those many stars. The site says get all 3 correct to win 1/2/3 stars... Please help me, and/or correct me if I am wrong in understanding the starring system..

Hi Nishant and anyone who is wondering,

The stars indicate the top level of the sets of problems in that technique that you have gotten all 3 questions right on. If you answered all 3 of the Basic problems correctly, you will get 1 star. After that, if you answered all 3 of the intermediate problems correctly, you will get 1 additional star for a total of 2. If you worked one the advanced problems, but didn't get all 3 correct the first time, you will not be awarded your third star. If on the second set you get all 3 right, you will get your third star. If on your third attempt, you get all 3 right again, you will not get additional stars as you already have all 3 stars.

Got that. But I think it would have been a great idea if we would have been awarded extra stars for completing extra sets in first attempt.
