Unhappy couldnt do closure in 1 case

So i took my cs a few days ago and for my first patient ,i didnt have time to do my closure...i had jus started it but then the bell rang...im kinda worried the rest of the cases went fine according to me ....no major mistakes that i can think about except in one case where i forgot to ask PAMHUGSFOSS but rem after the PE and thats when i asked the SP and he seemed okay with it after i apologized...
Does any1 know if all 12 cases count or i heard from somewhere that they take out ur worst case and 1 is experimental .... and therefore only 10 count...and what are the chances of passing if i didnt do one closure

My advice is just relax and forget cs exam...we cannot do anything...am waiting for results...just wait and watch...NOT closing 1 case does not effect your overall performace and overall result...Result is always based on overall performance but not on 1-2 cases. Remember that passing cs exam requires efficiency but not perfectionism.
