Why not "juste" au cas où?

Why not "juste" au cas où?

The question:

Nous sommes partis _________ au cas où.

We left early  just in case.

I answered: "en avance juste"

....and was marked incorrect for adding the "juste".

Could someone please explain why my answer was wrong?

Oops..... I realise that it was marked wrong because I left out "early" (en avance) not because I added "juste".

Your answer isn't wrong, and you are free to add "juste". This possibility simply wasn't added to the possible correct answers.

Hi,

I also added "juste" at the end of "en avance" -- to go with the "au cas ou" part. Why is that marked incorrect?  Going forward, it would be good to include that as a possible correct answer, no?

Thanks

David
