Info Very Weird Step 2 CK Exam!

I just don't know how did it go!

First few blocks were fine but once I entered 5th block I was marking every other question and wasn't sure about any answer. In retrospect, I did make about 6-7 silly mistakes now, but what is weird for me is how can someone keep his concentration level up in all blocks! took breaks after every block but I just couldn't keep up in the last 2 blocks and was just running through the motions.

Was sure of a few questions but then there were some very weird questions. I dont know it was very challenging paper for me and I cant say that it went fine either because it got very complicated in the last few blocks.
Hey guys how did it go for other people because I m already very anxious.

Please pitch in...
