USA Patient note in capital letters

Gave my exam end of March in houston, and just found out from a friend that they told them in the orientation video not to write the patient note in capital letters. I'm freaking out. All my pt notes were in capital letters, and they didnt tell us in the orientation about not writing in capital letters. Can somebody please confirm if this is a problem or not.

Somebody in our orientation asked the same question - & instructor answered that MDs who is gonna check our notes feel like we are yelling at them using all the time capital letter, in addition using capital letters kinda mislead your abbreviations - in general I don't think it is something gonna reduce your ICE score unless your wrote a brilliant note. I myself started realizing I have missed couple important points...

I don't think it really matters. I think you should be fine.
