Question Regarding closure

Hello doctors. I was wondering if I missed two closures due to running out of time in the encounter, along with forgetting to write investigations in one case. How fatal xould this affect my passing? Has anyone been able to pass with such mistakes? Plz give me your feedback

Honestly, not sure about the closures...but I forgot to write a work-up on one of my case...and I did GREAT! I have been told by ppl and from this forum that they drop 2 cases...not sure how true that is ...but I've read a lot of ppl forget to do closures on their initial cases and still passed

I know how it feels. Trust me I was in that situation not so long ago. What helped me was I read other ppls post and read the mistakes they made...and I used to say oh I didn't do that...or oh I know I did do that...and I ended up making a list of things I did and did not do...and saw that I did more then what I thought I did...and that boosted my confidence.

If you followed the format of FA..esp for PN...then u'll be fine..and if two closures were all u missed..then u'll pass with flying colors! All the best you!
