Default It's OK

Have a look at this poll
Enough Time on the real USMLE Step 1 Exam?

Although it's about Step 1, but it still gives you an idea that many students do not actually finish all the blocks.

It's perfectly normal to miss few questions (I'd say up to 10 in the whole exam).

I wouldn't think it will have a significant impact in lowering your score.

however - you should assume approx 1 point per question.. and assume you will get 80% right by chance... so at max you should lose about 4 points ... dont worry
