Unhappy how much will 4 unattempted question affect my score?

Just got done with my step 2. I could not attempt 4 questions in total . one of them I was going to click and the blobk time got over. I feel like killing my self. In step 1 nothing like this happened.
Am I the only one who has committed this unforgivable sin. Those 4 questions are haunting me.
Will post about my exam experience later

hey, congrats on getting done!

lets hope those 4 questions were all experimental, and they have to be.
i really dont know the effect of leaving 4 questions, but shouldnot effect drastically.

can you please tell me whether the level of difficulty was comparable to UWSA and NBME? or was it easier.....

I subscribe to that! You did not answer 1.1% of the entire exam's questions! 1%!!! Really, man, don't worry!
