Question More than 5 Differentials

Can we write more than 5 differentials in the PN?
I know that in the typing program there's only 5 spaces but in the PN we can add 6,7,8, ...etc Can we do that? Should we do that?

You are scored on the first five that you will mention
They will not consider the 6th, 7th, ...etc diagnoses that you put
Therefore, stick to the five and it's very important to list the most likely one as the first one as the first one has the most impact on the score.

Also remember that whatever you write outside the frame line of the PN will not be scanned and will not be scored.
