Default step 2 cs experience

hello friends, i have posted similar concern before, but i need advice from someone who have passed. I have been reading peoples experiences but dont know weather these mistakes which i did in exm lead me to fail...
so 1. in one case i forgot to perform CVA tenderness which was essential to rule out DD, i am so angry on myself how ican i forget. but pt was kind of weird that freaked me out and forgot this test to do
2. i did perform tinel s and phalen s test but i totally forgot to mention i PN because that test came negative.
3. i did not add d dimer or doppler ultrasound in workup of a pt but i added CT pulmonary angio. which is more imp to confirm diagnosis,is it fatal not mentioning above thing?
4. i messed up DDs coz was not able to come up with most likely DD, there were so many possibility like more than 3 and have to put only 3 but my PE, PN, workup and encounter was good
5. is it require to perform neuro in case of depressed pt if we only do MMSE? coz i did nt perform neuro in that case
6. in one case forgot to counsel on weed but rest was fine
7. forgot to check for tremors in pt where i was suspecting hyperthyroid prob but rest i did everything
8. i was not able to add immunisation history in a case coz ran out of space and word limit
9. is it a mistake telling pt tht he might have cancer but will rule it out by workup ?

rest of the thing i did not left my PN blank, did everythng from knoking door, introduce, permission, transition sentence, making pt comfortable, drapping, putting gloves, closure, counselling, relevent question n focused exam, i mean i always did focused exm first if i hv tim then only heart and lung otherwise not... :toosad

i dnt knw wt my result gonna be.. plzzz help .. give some experienced opinion on it... m really freaking out...
