Closing and counseling is a very important part of the CS evaluation.

It's likely that you will fail if you did not do it in 5 cases. However, I am not sure 100% that you will fail, there's still a chance that you might pass, fingers crossed.

This thread might help you
I have these mistakes in my CS exam!

Me too. Did cs today andni remembered i never mentioned confidentiality in the sexual hx part. Like damn all those i had transition but forgot the important confidentialitynpart. Many important questions missed here and there, didnt close in 2 cases, didnt shake hands to a px who was in severe pain, jumblef a few words here and there. Asked for smokingnpacks per day but not the duration of the habit?? Had 3 cases without general appearamce on px note. And so many more.
Lets just pray that everything turns out well. I really feel devastated as u probably are right now. Lets hang in there and hope for the best.

may be 2 of them were the to be discounted cases...
then missing 3 counselling should not be a great scare
besides sp can be expected to be sympathetic enough in cns cases....
