You need to know exactly how long the sorting and selection process will take , making sure it gets done withing the 6mins before displaying to the user. Since I don't know what kind of sorting and selection criteria is involved , I can't help much but as you mentioned about your devs saying it can't be done , I'm guessing it involves a lot of work and the time it takes for the whole process isn't guaranteed to be consistent with the 6 mins requirement.

Its a question and answer application in which the users have 6 minutes to submit their answers. so the sorting and selection has to be done within this 6 minutes. The criteria is a form of elimination process where the system is to compare answers sent in and select the one among all the answers sent in within the 6 minutes which meets certain conditions, to be displayed, for two minutes.
