Help Really worried about exam performance

Hello, hope everyone is doing great!
Took my exam few days back, though cases were easy, sp's co-operative, but totally fretting about few things I did in there:

1.Finished cases a lot early like 3-4 cases i finished 2-3 minutes ahead and came out to write pt note, 3-4 cases finished even before the five mintes alarm , 2-3 were on time (may be spoke a bit fast and cut short the history , wish i could go back in my head and check what exactly i did there )
2. Hands got ice cold throughout, so had to touch sp's with them cold hands, though I apologized every time but...who knows
3. Do not remember any Major blunders but must've committed trivial errors in every case..

Just wanted to know if number 1 and 2 matter in terms of pass/fail since I am unable to focus on my next exam because of the fear that I am going to be screwed up because of these things that I did.
People who have taken or are preparing for the exam, what do you think????any input will be appreciated!!!

why are you posting such a total lie?
gold doesnt reveal any case information or lists to anyone,
it is disgusting to see how you are trying to slander them
all of their cases are unique and not on the real exam,
they will teach you how to find the diagnosis and pick the correct lab test fo
any situation or any type of case, they will teach you how to
listen to a patient and understand why a diagnosis is correct
they are a great course and you are obviously a competitor trying to get them in trouble,
FA should be in trouble since they have all the chief complaints i saw in the exam

Nicegirl- Gold is a great review they do not
Share real cases
all of their cases are excellent and unique + very helpful because they help you learn
They help you understand how to approach the various presentations from patients which is more important than knowing any case

Irenewhite I have seen people pass with a lot more mistakes then that. The more you worry the more mistakes you will think of. Imo your list of blinded isn't bad I would guess that you will be ok. Go ahead and focus on your next exam either way when you get results you will be ahead. Gl
