Default DDx screwed and still passed.

I screwed up the ddx of two of my cases and got the order of most likely and less likely wrong on another one. Does this mean I am screwed anyone who had a similar experience but still passed?

For 2 of my cases I didn't know the right ddx, for another one I just wrote something close but was not the right one and for two cases I had the orders wrong and I still passed with good performance, not super high but far from borderline! hope this helps.

Thank you for your reply. I am worried about the ICE component. And when did you take your exam?

I was worried about ICE too but as I said I passed ICE with good performance which was very surprising for me. I took it in October and got the results in December.

Hey thank you for replying that was so relieving. I'm doubtful about 2 cases DDx & I'm not sure whether I was sympathetic enough with the patient..Expecting results in feb..

Can u plz tell which center u took exam in? Thanks..

I took it in Philly. I didn't do anything out of the ordinary for CIS, just the usual things such as I'm sorry you are in pain, introducing myself and closure.
