The pending results stay that way because WU's are issued to multiple computers and their results are compared. So when you have a WU pending it's because they are waiting for the same WU to be completed by other computers on the grid for comparison and to verify accuracy. If you're WU has a different result than the majority of the results returned you get an error. If it matches then you get a valid. The points you get are based on completion time in comparison to other return times as well.
