You can't go back for more points, once you finish the closing, you're done. Finishing under time isn't particularly beneficial, but if you got what you needed, I'd consider that more important than trying to get more points.
Yeah, I had no concerns over points, just confusion. The judge told us newbie people not to stress points at all, that if we made it through the closing we'd have plenty so pick the course that worked for your dog and worry about points when you are more familiar with the games. We ended up with 42 points and a 2nd place finish (44 points was the win by the trial chair!), so that was just a nice added bonus.
