Try not to stress yourself too much about what you got wrong. No one knows the answer to the question you're asking, and if anyone tells you they know don't believe. The thing to remember is that
1) there are experimental questions built into your exam, i.e. questions that will not count toward your score, so some of the questions you got wrong may or may not be experimental
2) many of the questions are tricky, and it's doubtful anyone can remember all 322 of them and double check to know how much they got correct
3) every exam is based on a curve based on people who get the same questions, and pretty much everyone gets a different mixture of questions so no two person will have the same exam. Therefore, you can't compare your exam to anyone else's.

I am in the same position as you are and I know it feels like pure torture, but there's nothing to do but try not to let yourself get too worked up about it and hang in there for a few more weeks. Good luck, and i hope your score is even better than you hope it to be
